Yes, we know. It’s been quite some time since you’ve last heard from us. There have been some major changes these last few months concerning the Tattoo-Frënn which took us some time to sort out and get back on track again.
After last year’s convention Ferdy and Martine announced their intention to quit. Losing two founding members is quite a hard blow to take for such a small team and it took us some time to digest it. Nevertheless, everything’s fine, we’re still friends and we intend to keep it that way.
Now, we, the remaining members, had to decide if we should go on with the convention or if we should just give it up altogether. Don’t worry, there will be a convention this year and, as things are right now, we’ll also see the 20th anniversary of our “baby”.
During our general assembly three weeks ago, we elected our new board members, which actually wasn’t that hard a task as there are only four people left. So, let me give you a short introduction to the “new” Tattoo-Frënn:
- Dan (chairman/secretary)
- Nadine (vice-chairwoman/treasurer)
- Fränk ( 3rd member of the board)
- Nadia (member)
In order to get all the preliminary work done in time we will get in touch with most of the tattooists, piercer, etc. who participated last year and just ask them if they feel like being part of it again in August. There will be new people showing up, but as I imagine the reaction of last year’s participants to be mostly positive, the space for newcomers will be restricted.
If everything goes as planned, we should be able to present you with a more or less complete participant’s list by the end of March.
Well, I hope that now you understand why there has been such a long silence from our side. There really were major internal things that needed to be fixed before we could move on. Now, that we’ve managed to do so, we hope that everything will return to normal very quickly and that we can go on as usual.
Have a great time and don’t forget to check this space and our facebook page for future updates and further information.
