Wazzup Pilipinas!

OMG! The ink gods heard our prayers – and we are tremendously grateful. The wait is finally over and we are celebrating big time for the coming of the most spectacular and grandest tattoo convention in the Philippines.

This much-awaited event will surely be a crowd-pleaser as it is the most popular and powerful gathering of tattoo experts combined with fabulous performances and very naughty and exhilarating competitions every tattoo art lover would appreciate.

I can't wait to step into the doors of the World Trade Center this September 27 and 28, along with my equally excited friends to witness Dutdutan Trece, the thirteenth run of the world-famous Dutdutan!

Get ready for Wazzup Pilipinas, the online media partner of Dutdutan Trece!!!

After years of pushing boundaries and challenging the norm, Dutdutan, the country’s biggest and grandest tattoo convention is once again all armed to go great guns. Hailed this year as Dutdutan Trece, this mega-colossal weekend event is set to roll on September 27 & 28 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

Dutdutan Trece is expected to be better and badder, consistent with all previous Dutdutan events. And in the last twelve years of Manila’s dopest tat con, it never disappoint.

Raising the bar a few notches higher, event presenter Tribal Gear Philippines is bringing in hardcore band Payable On Death a.k.a. POD to rock both nights of the two-day event with the alternative rap metal sounds they’re known for. Also flying in to celebrate ink are Unauthorized Ink’s infamous Big Tiny, world renowned tattoo artist Steve Soto of Goodfellas Tattoo and main man, Tribal founder Bobby Ruiz.

Possibly the biggest tat con yet, Dutdutan Trece is all set to accommodate thousands of artists, collectors, and ink enthusiasts. 140 booths will be setup in the three halls of WTC to be manned by the best local and international tattoo artists from all over the country and around the world. A gathering of the biggest guns in the skin art scene, geared up to cater to all your tattooing fantasies. More vendors and traders than ever before will be offering a huge range of tattoo services, equipment and aftercare products.

Event highlights will include regular event features such as the annual Tattoo Competitions, professional URCC fights, FHM Bikini Contest, Drum Duel and Project Detonation. Not to be missed are performances from some of our top local music acts.

Dutdutan boasts of pioneering the biggest tattoo event in the country, encompassing multiple aspects of the tattoo culture with a huge range of mind-blowing full lifestyle attractions and performances. Immerse in creativity and mastery of a very exceptional art.

Once again, enjoy and experience the exhibits, the music, the shows and the crowd at Dutdutan Trece. Remember, other people hang their art. We wear ours.

Tattoo Competitions

Inked Out! As with any tattoo convention, the best show offering would always be the display of works from ink masters who battle it out in the tattoo competitions. Each year, the caliber of work entered at Dutdutan gets better and better. Not only are the stunning tattoos being skillfully executed, but also some of the subjects are simply genius. The various competitions are always a closely fought battle with so many dope entries in each category. With the caliber of artists joining, we wait with bated breath as to what inky-delights we will witness at the show!

    I've always been fascinated with tattoos, but never am I going to get one. XD
    Because of my addiction towards some things, *cough*anime*cough* I always find it amazing to see body art on human subjects. A convention like this, with other competitions going on, would be fun. And the best part, ofcourse, the badass theme of the article itself. :D
