Wow, what a weekend we've had!
Grateful that we were allowed to see so many familiar faces again,
but also the many unknown faces.
It took some getting used to to organize a convention again after
all these years, but in fact it was also very quickly familiar and beautiful.
Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to this fantastic weekend.
These are the organisation, the volunteers, the participants and the visitors.
We feel grateful!
The drawing with the layout of the hall is ready.
Now you can find all tattoo artists easily.

*interested joining the contest jury?
You must be an experienced tattoo artist and no work of
yours/your studio is permitted to participate at this contest.
Please contact Rene at the info stand.
On the weekend of the convention there is also the Dam tot Damloop.
This run runs from Amsterdam Central via Amsterdam Noord to Zaandam.
What this means is that there will be some traffic disruption when you come by car or bus.
So keep this in mind please.
- When by car it looks like it's best to take exit 18 (Amsterdam Tuindorp Oostzaan) from ring road A10.
The ferry is still running it's normal schedule.

Program ATC 2022.
We just updated the program for Amsterdam Tattoo Convention 2022.
You can find the progam here.
Tattoo stands are sold out!
The tattoo stands are sold out!
Yes, you read that right, sold out. And it's only May!
Normally this wouldn't go that fast of course, but actually it's not fast at all,
it's slow, because in a sense this is the postponed convention of 2020.
Many participants who registered in 2020 have been moved on to 2021
and ultimately to 2022.
You can still register though, because we have a back-up list for when
booths become available. However, we cannot promise anything.
We still have some commercial stands available.
Change of end time
Because many people will travel by ferry, we have decided to bring the end time on
Friday and Saturday back by one hour.
In this way we hope that everyone can take the ferry home on time.
New date for 2022
We are happy to announce our new date for next year.
The convention will be held on 16/17/18 september 2022.
Still at NDSM Loods in Amsterdam North.

After a little over a year a new news item?
Yes unfortunately so.
Not that nothing has happened in the past year, but because of the almost daily changes
due to Covid-19 it was sometimes impossible to know what to do.
For a long time we had high hopes that we would be up and running again, but the opposite
is true. Unfortunately.
After a long search for the right way to let the convention go through, we have come to the sad
conclusion that it can’t go through this year. The contamination figures are skyrocketing
worldwide, the Delta variant is exploding and more and more countries are closing their
borders. In addition to the Dutch restrictions, it is especially difficult for international participants
to travel. More expensive airline tickets, rising hotel prices, expensive PCR tests, mandatory
quarantine and/or a total flight ban make it impossible to continue.
We hope to give you a new date soon.

The Amsterdam Tattoo Convention 2020 has been canceled.
Sad but inevitable news.
Under these circumstances, this year's convention cannot take place because of Covid19.
It made us decide to postpone the convention until next year.
The new date is then on 24-25-26 September 2021.
The location remains the NDSM Loods, Amsterdam Noord.
More news will folow...
We teamed up with Yotel Amsterdam to give you a discount rate during your stay in Amsterdam.
The hotel is situated nearby the NDSM Loods. It's around a 15 minute walk and by car it will take
you maybe 5 minutes. Hotel guest can park for free.
Please go to the hotel page for more info...
The time has come again, the first messages from scammers have been reported to us again.
We will NEVER call you to offer hotels / rooms.
When you are called by such a company, hang up.
Don't do business with them!
Online registration is now open.
We've already sent out the first contracts!

We are very proud to have partnered with NDSM Loods.
Easy to reach by car, bicycle, bus or ferry.
There is sufficient (paid) parking space at NDSM.
The free ferry is accessible for pedestrians and cyclists.
Buses also run from Amsterdam Central Station to NDSM.
The impressive NDSM Loods (warehouse) has stood majestically at the IJ waterfront
for almost a hundred years already. The warehouse is part of the former NDSM shipyard
and is unmistakably a landmark within this monumental industrial area.
The Foundation “Kinetisch Noord” owns and manages the building.
Art City NDSM (“de Kunststad”) is a cultural and artistic breeding ground (“broedplaats”)
with circa 80 workspaces, about 250 creatives and crafts(wo)men work there.
Art City covers around one third of the building’s immense surface.
The other parts of the warehouse are rented out for film- and photoshoots, music shows
and theatre performances, exhibitions, auctions, company trips, dance parties, markets,
conferences and so forth.
Registration for Amsterdam Tattoo Convention 2010 will open on December 15.
