The Australian Tattoo Expo Sydney is turning 10

The Australian Tattoo Expo is returning to Sydney to celebrate its 10 year anniversary, cementing itself as the biggest tattoo event in the country.

Proudly presented by Australian Tattoo Events, the Expo is bringing over 350 of the most talented local and international artists together under one roof, including renowned artists travelling from as far and wide as Singapore, South Korea, Finland, Canada and Japan to showcase their work.

Visitors will have the chance to meet their next (or first!) artist, watch them in action, research the latest trends and techniques, 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 Australian Tattoo Expo is a proud supporter of Survivor’s Ink, who will be bringing their non-profit project to the Sydney leg of the tour for the first time, providing breast cancer survivors with access to realistic cosmetic tattooing to aid in their emotional recovery, completely free of charge. Be sure to buy a raffle ticket or two to go into the draw to win paintings by local artists and support this incredible cause!

The event will feature a jam-packed entertainment program, with 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 hugely popular 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.
