At Aliens Tattoo, we are overjoyed over the stellar performances of our artists at this year’s Kula Tattoo Festival Mumbai! The second edition of Kula Worldwide truly was a splendid mosaic of diverse cultures and artistic expressions. Central to the ethos of Kula Worldwide is the powerful message that art has the unique ability to create bridges and forge connections among individuals from varied backgrounds and experiences.

This illustrious tattoo fest, which was held in the bustling city of Mumbai, became a melting pot of artistic talent and drew in tattoo artists from across the globe. Each artist brought with them a unique perspective, contributing to an eclectic mix that ranged from the intricacy of traditional tribal tattoos to the bold and innovative flair of contemporary, avant-garde designs. Kula Tattoo Festival was more than just a competitive event; it was a grand celebration of artistry in all its forms and an affirmation of the creativity that flows in the veins of tattoo artists.
