Just a couple of weeks ago, even before the general self-isolation, I managed to talk with one of the most experienced and famous tattooists in Russia. A person who has become the household name of the largest and most significant tattoo convention in Russia - the International Moscow Tattoo Convention. A man who showed to the whole world the power of Russian tattoo realism.

Please meet - Pavel Arefyev, aka Pavel Angel.

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has confused the plans of absolutely every person on the planet, and the tattoo community has not passed these events. The cancellation and rescheduling of social events is something that the organizers of tattoo conventions all over the world had to face.

What will happen to us? With tattoo conventions?
What awaits the modern Russian and world tattoo in the future?

Pavel will try to answer these questions.
