Gathering of the Tribes 2011, a tribal and tattoo expo was held at BCCK last weekend. I got the pass to the opening ceremony. Thought the ceremony was on the stage but we were so wrong LOL… It’s in the middle of the hall. The opening ceremony was conducted differently from the usual event opening ceremony.
Here’s the video. Upacara Miring to mark the opening of the event, I took the video to share with you. It’s easier this way than having me writing about it.
Initially I thought this event was related to the tribes of Borneo where you could see and learn about the cultures of the tribes, something like a visit to the cultural village. When I got in, I was confused after seeing tattoo booths from the beginning to the end. Only then it dawned on me that it was about tattoos of tribes from all over the world, it’s not about the tribes of Borneo, if you get what I mean.
You can even get your tattoo done on the spot. It’s weird to know that some people are so afraid of injection yet not afraid of getting inked -.-” Injection just one time only and it’s over but it’s not the case in getting the tattoo. Hmmm… I don’t understand hahaha…
Left: Some handicrafts from Sarawak.
Right: Some information on tattoos around the world.
The host of Tattoo Hunter, Lars Krutak, was there too but I didn’t know. Watched the Tattoo Hunter half way and I left. I’m not a fan of tattoo and never will be one, really not my thing but the series was very interesting to watch and informative.
The event was a 3-day event, did you go?

Strange. There was hardly any promotion at all !
borneoboy, I saw it in newspapers and facebook since last year. However, many people didn’t know about it. I guess not enough promotion.
Hi Irene, very interesting. But will take a pass at having tattoos on me, ha ha.
Must be fun watching the show.
Anybody from Canada there?
Uncle Lee, the show was indeed informative and interesting but tattoo is really not my kind of thing, I’ll pass too hahaha… Not sure was there anyone from Canada, didn’t check them out one by one.
