The South African International Tattoo Convention returns to Cape Town for the 3rd annual show with an upscaled offering of tattooers, bands and an even bigger experience for visitors to enjoy.

The South African Tattoo Convention invites a curated collection of 90 tattooers from over 15 different countries to present their personal style of tattooing. Each tattooer is inspired by over 15 genres of modern and traditional tattooing. SAITC has become a highly respected event among the international tattoo community and is recognized by international artists as one of the most highlighted events on the world tattoo convention calendar-the only one of its kind in Africa.

The vibe always includes storytelling between traveling tattooers and clients alike, meeting people from all walks of life and getting to hang out, browse or even tattooed.

The 3-day show has upscaled their offering by introducing 6 live bands, 3 food trucks, an improved market area with fashion and lifestyle vendors, chocolatiers, coffee roasters, a fully kitted beer garden, and a picturesque ocean view deck bar. Everyone is welcome and children of all ages are now able to attend

Pre-book to avoid disappointment. Artist bookings are open and slots fill up extremely fast. To ensure you get a session with your favourite tattooer, head to the South African International Tattoo Convention website and book by emailing the artist directly before the convention to start discussing the process and your design and tattoo placement.
