The art of tattoo goes much further back in time than most people think. In fact, over three thousand years ago the ancient Egyptian civilisation was already familiar with the techniques of tattoo, which they and practiced. It was not until Captain Cook and his expeditionaries back from a voyage to Tahiti in 1771 that the art was definitively introduction into modern Western society. Tattoos and tattoo artists first appeared in Spain in the sixties and seventies. Today, tattooing is a profession, a way of life that enjoys great popularity among the Mula community, which is why this second urban trends festival welcomes the Madrid Tattoo Convention, where we have occasion to speak with Oscar ‘Mega,’ from Mega Rock Tattoo.
