Watch: The world’s first Deaf tattoo convention – in Berlin!

Posted on February 8, 2013

Well this is a first. In Germany, they recently held the world’s first tattoo convention.

And cannily, they released a subtitled version of the video, in English.

Things get a tad awkward as the reporter goes round finding out not only about Deaf tattoo fans, but also the dos and don’ts of how to talk to, and about Deaf people.

But it’s well worth a watch for a peek at what looks like the kind of convention we could do with here in Blighty.

So who’s up for going to the next one? Limping Chicken road trip, anyone? Prize for the first person who gets a chicken tattooed on their arm?
