Budapest Tattoo Convention 2017

Last month Johnny Strange returned to Hungary to perform at the 2017 International Budapest Tattoo Convention.


Once again, returning for the 4th time in as many years, Johnny Strange entertained audiences with death defying acts – even enlisting the help of an audience member to pull a swallowed sword out of his throat.


The audience member who joined him on stage, coincidentally happened to have a tattoo of a sword swallower on her left shoulder!

Budapest Tattoo Convention 2014

johnny-strange-matt-gone-tattooed-manJohnny Strange recently visited Hungary where his self and The Human Checkerboard, Matt Gone, performed at the 2014 IV. International Budapest Tattoo Convention and it went down a treat. 

Matt Gone is known world wide as ‘The Checkered Man’ with 98% of his body covered in ink, including the whites of his eyes and even his tongue. His transformation into The Human Checkerboard we see before us has been a long time in the works, when he got his first tattoo at just 14 years old.

This years Budapest Tattoo Convention hosted over 120 tattoo artists from around the world, countless seminars and venders including Harley Davidson and Rock Eagle. Budapest is one of my favourite places in the world to visit, not just because they use a metre stick as a measurement for beer but because the country is rich in history and and is one of the most photogenic places in Europe.

You can check out Matt Gone over on his website at;
