THE SOUTH AFRICAN TATTOO CONVENTION RETURNS IN 2023

Our 2020 show vanished before our eyes merely two weeks before the show dates, to the Covid-19 pandemic, but finally, there is good news on the horizon! The South African International Tattoo Convention is back and we’re making some bold moves.

HELLO AGAIN CAPE TOWN, YOU BEAUTIFUL THING.
Our Cape Town Convention is recognized on the international tattoo events calendar, supported annually combined by more than 100 local and international tattooers from over 14 countries. It is our honor to host this incredible experience and we cannot wait to have everyone, friends old and new, back under one roof. So, drum roll, please…

31 March – 2 April 2023
This may seem like a little while away but we all know how time flies. As per our consultation with the local eventing bodies, we anticipate that all our artists from all over the world will be able to freely attend the show by this time. You can expect the best show yet from us for this massive celebration of tattooing after this long time of absence. So pencil it in guys and let the countdown begin. We can’t wait.

JOBURG, WE’RE COMING FOR YOU AT LONG LAST.
After much deliberation and inundated requests since our inception in 2017, we have decided to create a much-needed halfway stop before the big international 2023 comeback show in Cape Town. The South African International Tattoo Convention will be hosting a locally oriented show in none other than Johannesburg. Here are our tentative dates.

30 September – 2 October 2022
It’s been 2 years since we had an opportunity to gather tattooers together and as we’ve never given the Gauteng region a visit, we decided let’s bring the show to you for a change! The show will be a strong selection of South African tattooers with select participation by internationals, as allowed by travel restrictions at such time. As always you can expect a world-class show, with music, arts, great food and of course the best company. And don’t worry Joburg, this is not a one-hit-wonder, we’re coming to stay, from now on we’ll be in town every September!

Yours in Tattooing
