This huge billboard erected at Pintu Gerbang Sibu ushers in the 2nd International Tattoo Convention.
The upcoming event has aroused curiosity in Sibu. Not surprising because the folks here have misconceived the art of tattoo. They view it as a mark of vice. It is a sad thing that this local culture has been relegated.
If you have not fully appreciated this art on a person's skin, you now have a wonderful opportunity to open your eyes to it.
This international convention is organised by the Sibu Municipal Council in collaboration with Borneo Headhunters Tattoo Studio. It is scheduled to be held from June 29 to July 1 at Bukit Aup Jubilee Park.
Just to excite you, it is going to bring together international acclaimed tattoo artists from all over the world. Our local talents in traditional music, dances and art of tattooing will also be highlighted.
Borneo tattoo, our very rich culture, has been known all over the world because of its cultural and traditional roots. We should be proud of it.
This convention has important missions in hand, namely to preserve our beautiful culture and tradition and to promote tourism for Sibu. It,therefore, means business.
All things are made to happen. This applies to the 2nd International Tattoo Convention also. Two prominent lawyers in Sibu, namely Councilor Robert Lau and Mr. Chambai Lindong, initiated for it to come to Sibu. Both of them have been working day in day out tirelessly with personal sacrifices for this event.
They have done a great thing for Sibu. Let us give them a big round of applause.
