What’s New at SAITC 2018!


The South African International Tattoo Convention is taking some big steps.

We’ve secured our new home THE LOOKOUT at the V&A waterfront. This venue allows us to extend into a relaxed indoor and outdoor space.

As always the show is 100% a tattoo focussed event, so if you love tattoos (minus all the side shows) we have 85 of the worlds best under one roof. So with good company sorted!, we felt all we needed to add was good music, great food and of course some tasty beverages to go with our view.

So here is a birds eye view, along with some pics of what we’ve put together for the weekend show 23-24-25 March 2018.

We have 85 tattooers, a great mix of returning faces and plenty new guys joining the show. The artists will be displaying their work and tattoo merchandise, inclusive of t-shirts, pins and hand painted flash sheets. We have been posting pics of all our tattooers on our Instagram and Facebook so please go over to meet them.  If you want to pre-book, email your artist of choice directly here. Walk ups welcome all weekend.

Joining us on the food front is our friends Didi’s Mexican, Jack Rabbit Mobile Kitchen, The Sausage Embassy and last but not least Wahine, who caters in Polynesian style food.

Opening night Friday 23 March, Fokof are going to open the event with us, they are on between 8-9pm.  It was never a debate it had to be Fokof celebrating this show’s growth and opening night. Its going to be a good time, so come hang out!

In our courtyard we have a tented bar area which will have plenty shade and seating, serving premium beers, wine, spirits and non alcoholic refreshments. Our social areas will be family friendly and have designated smoking areas. Some chilled music and interactive initiatives by some of our event partners should make for a fun day out.

This is the our venue’s deck, is has the perfect ocean view, fresh air and loads of shade and seating along with perfectly cool beverages! Need we say more? We are so exited, can we go now?
