Bringing you the best in global tattoo culture, The Cape Tattoo Expo is currently the most important lifestyle festival of its kind on the African continent. With a great range of top local and international tattoo artists attending and a very exciting arts and concert event schedule, Cape Tattoo Expo 2014 promises to be an exhilarating weekend of pure tattoo art bliss.
Event organizer Manuela Gray said that attendees can expect an incredible visual display of tattoo artists from all over the world, as well as the best that South Africa has to offer. The tattoo booths are situated in various big open rooms in the city hall and even if you do not book a tattoo, you will be able to see the masters doing their thing while they are working on their clients. Manuela commented, “The idea of the Expo is to provide the SA public with an environment where they can get tattooed by great artists of their choosing. But, as important, it’s also a platform for tattoo artists to showcase their artistry, skill, and creativity in an open and social environment and for the SA public to see how varied and evolved the industry has become.”
There will be an art exhibition with the theme “Victorian Oddities” that will open on February 28. There are also more exciting related events in the weeks leading up to the Expo.
