Ecchi Ink at Torucon!

Four arms with tattoos, featuring anime characters and the Cheshire Cat

At Torucon, we like to cater to your every nerdy need, from our contents, to our vendors and even nerdy tattoos! Therefore, it is our pleasure to introduce....

 

Ecchiink!

We are 3 tattoo-artists from the cosplay community that have joined forces from our respective Skien, Oslo and Trondheim, in order to give you a cozy experience and the opportunity to leave Torucon with a brand new tattoo.

Together we are Ecchiink!

Meet the artists:

Benedikte Steen Wold:

Tattoo artist at Blue Stag Tattoo (formerly Purple Pain) in Trondheim.

I'm educated and holding a diploma in Graphic Design, but am now working as a tattoo apprentice at Blue Stag Tattoo. My love for cosplay and anime started growing at a young age, at the same time as my interest for tattoos also began to develop. Therefore I am heavily inspired from anime/cartoons, as well as Neo-Traditional tattoos. So at Torucon 2019, you will find plenty of cute and cool motifs from our amazing nerd culture!

I am super exited for Torucon, and hope to see you!
