Secure a booking in advance with your preferred artist, or opt for spontaneity and choose on the day from the multitude of available artists offering walk-up appointments throughout the weekend.

Featuring a diverse lineup of up to 400 international and local artists hailing from countries like Japan, Taiwan, China, South Korea, USA, Indonesia, Sweden, and Australia, the expo caters to both seasoned tattoo enthusiasts and newcomers alike, providing the opportunity to get inked on-site. 

Expo attendees can also enjoy captivating entertainment, renowned tattoo competitions, unique merchandise, body piercing services, and the chance to be tattooed by globally acclaimed artists.

For something a little different, you can explore the less appealing side of the tattoo industry with entries from those who ‘didn’t think before they inked’. If you come under this category, you can display your tattoo regrets in the Australian Tattoo Expo’s official “Worst Tattoo Competition” organised by entrepreneur and experienced tattoo artist Troy Candy. 

Special guest, Cervena Fox – a performer and tattoo artist renowned for her burlesque residency in Las Vegas – will host the weekend. Known for her pyrotechnic skills and tattoo artistry, Cervena will also grace the event with performances throughout the weekend.
