Australian Tattoo Expo

The biggest tattoo event in the country paints the town red for its 10th birthday

The Australian Tattoo Expo returns for an unmissable weekend of tattoos, art and entertainment.

Presented by Australian Tattoo Events, the biggest tattoo event in the country is bringing the most talented local and international tattoo artists together to showcase their work.

The first stop on the 2019 Australian Tattoo Expo tour will feature over 300 of the most talented local and international tattoo artists, including artists travelling from as far and wide as Singapore, Finland, Japan, Korea and Canada.

Visitors will have the chance to meet their next (or first!) artist, watch them in action, research the latest trends, or even treat themselves to a tattoo on the spot! Artists will be selling prints and merch, and retailers will be in attendance selling streetwear, jewellery and more.

The event will feature a jam-packed entertainment program, with tattoo seminars, daily circus performances, and the first round of the 2019 Australian Tattoo Series. Artists will start battling it out for points to come out on top, with the overall winner taking home the title of 2019 Australian Tattoo Series Champion and a sweet $10,000 in prize money at the end of the year.

The Sh!ttest Tattoo Competition will be returning to the Expo, so come along and show off your ink that seemed like good idea at the time. You might just win something!

With so much to see and do, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this huge celebration of art, diversity and tattoo culture.

See you there!
