Tattoos in Hong Kong - level 2

Tattoos in Hong Kong - level 2

16-10-2013 06:00

Hong Kong’s first international tattoo convention has opened. It will hopefully make tattooing in Hong Kong more popular.

Tattoos are still seen as an inappropriate thing in Hong Kong. If you have a tattoo, you might not get a job because of it. However, the situation is changing. There were only four tattoo shops in Hong Kong 13 years ago. Today, there's around 100 of them. Somebody new wants to be a tattoo artist every month and every week.

The convention was three days long and it featured competitions, live music and DJs.

Difficult words: convention (large meeting of people with the same interests), inappropriate (bad and rude), feature (have).

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

The October issue of magazine Drive has been published. You can buy the magazine here.
