On the fifth day, it was rest day for the band after the gig and nothing was scheduled. I went to the final day of Taipei International Tattoo and Music Festival held at Songshan Cultural and Creative Centre. This tattoo show is a 3 days event, besides tattoo artistes and tattoo shows, it has gigs with local Taiwanese bands playing. On that day, I managed to shoot and caught up with Trash and Flesh Juicer 血肉果汁機 who were playing that day.
