The Man on the Mission

Very few have made an indelible impact on the art and culture of tattoo like Mario Barth. Over the last several decades, he’s pioneered safer products, gathered up-and-coming artists, and made some amazing work along the way. He’s also dedicated to making The Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth exactly what it claims to be. In 2009 he set the Guiness World Record for putting together the largest tattoo convention ever. This year, he’s going to shatter it again. Come meet him.
