Tattoo Convention Sponsorships
Tattoo Conventions/Festivals act as a platform for all tattoo artists to showcase their talent & participate in a healthy competition amongst nationwide tattoo artists. This is a great opportunity for all the artists to build their network & get an exposure to world famous tattoo artists & companies. However, getting a chance to participate here as a budding artist in the tattoo industry is not as easy as it may seem.
At Aliens Tattoo School, we provide an opportunity to our students to participate through us and sponsor their participation. Many of our students have won awards as freshers even when they competed amongst experienced artists.
How does this sponsorship work?
We select the top-performing students at Aliens and support them for international tattoo conventions happening in India. They also get to tattoo at the convention and represent the Aliens Tattoo School Team.
What is the selection process for this sponsorship?
- Each convention, we pick top 10 people from the current and past batches whose work is exceptional.
- We also consider the overall attitude and behaviour — how well the student do in competencies like team-player, collaborative, problem-solver, humble, creative etc.
- We offer the sponsorship and and let student accept it or reject it.
- If accepted, we start their special training if required, we prepare them for the convention.
- If rejected, we look for more students with exceptional work and attitude.
What is covered in this sponsorship?
We cover the convention booth cost, award participation cost and the mentor support cost, we do not cover food and accommodation.
Will I have to be in the current batch of Aliens Tattoo School to get selected?
This is open for all the students of Aliens, as convention cannot accommodate more than 6 to 8 students at a time for one booth, every convention we pick the best/top of students of aliens to participate.
If I win the award, will I get to keep the award or it stays with Aliens?
It is up to you, if you wish to keep it with yourself you can, if you wish display it at Aliens, we will accept it gracefully and your award, photos will go on the wall of fame section at Aliens school.
Will I get mentor support at the convention?
How many conventions will I get to attend under this program?
First of all your work should at par to get selected for this sponsorship, not everyone gets the sponsorship. And if you get selected, you get the sponsorship only for one event (one time).
Will I make money at the convention by tattooing clients?
No, if you do a paid tattoo the money will go to the company, however our focus is going to be on awards, the soul purpose to have you at the convention is to give you the exposure of the convention, build your portfolio and get recognised by winning awards.
What will be my role at the convention?
Your role is to represent Aliens Tattoo School as a tattoo artist at the convention. You will be tattooing mostly all days. These tattoos will be for competition (awards), however if we need your help in some other areas or we want you to help other artists or handle clients or any other work related to the convention, we expect you to take it gracefully.
