Lebanon's second tattoo festival took place over the weekend, gathering the country's tight-knit creative community of tattoo lovers and artists in the Concrete 1994 event space in Beirut's Sin al-Fil neighborhood. A total of 21 tattoo artists, including several international artists from Greece, Berlin, the United Kingdom and the United States converged at this year's festival, organized by 37-year-old tattoo lover Noura Jaroudi."I think that the culture deserves it, we have a lot of tattooed people here that are into the arts and into tattooing," Jaroudi told The Daily Star.Tattoo artists set up stations, each decorated with examples of their work, ready to take in appointments or walk-ins. Participating artists Shara Kenworthy, 29, and Joshua Alam, 28, are both tattoo artists from the U.S. now based in Lebanon.Jaroudi is hopeful that the culture will only continue to blossom and that her festival will live on for years to come.
