Tattoo festival in Russia - level 2

Tattoo festival in Russia - level 2

08-05-2015 15:00

Sochi was the site of the Winter Olympics in Russia last year, but this year it is the site of something very different. An international tattoo festival is happening there, where people can get ink and show off their tattoos in a contest. Experts scrutinize their tattoos to find the best ones.

Most people, however, are enjoying being at the festival with everyone and being in the sun and in the nice scenery.

Difficult words: to get ink (to get a tattoo), scrutinize (to look closely or carefully), scenery (how a place looks).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
