Yes you can get tattooed at The South African Tattoo Convention! The best practice is to contact the artist directly if you are interested before the convention to start discussing the process and to book your session with them directly. Head over to our Artists Page to find your tattooer’s contact details.
The cost of your tattoo will vary depending on size and design. Your tattoo artist will give you a quote for the tattoo and their rates are final.
You should have a good breakfast, shower before you arrive and ensure you have appropriate clothing on for the area that will be getting tattooed. Ensure that you bring along enough cash for your tattoo and to possibly get some merchandise and to tip your tattooer if you feel inclined.
The South African International Tattoo Convention is a great place to bring the family and to educate your kids on good tattooing practice, however children under age 5 are not allowed in the venue due to health risks.
