South African Tattoo Convention

24 - 26 March 2017
South Africa | Cape Town

The first annual South African International Tattoo Convention will be taking place at the beautiful Cape Town International Convention Centre on the weekend of 24 – 26 March 2017.

The tattooing community has been rapidly growing in popularity throughout the last years. We believe this is due to the acceptance of tattooing as a well-respected art form and introduction into mainstream media. The main objective of The South African International Tattoo Convention is to educate the public on health perspective and the correct way to approach getting a tattoo, as well as introducing the public to a wide range of new styles and cultures.
