How to get tattooed?

WALK UPS ARE WELCOME @satattoocon. All over the world it is customary to visit a tattoo convention to take the opportunity to get a tattoo from a travelling tattooer whom you may not get to meet otherwise. So if you’ve been following along and you’ve been thinking about visiting the show… It’s really simple. Just get your butt to the show, grab a ticket at the door, meet and greet the massive selection of tatooers (from over 17 countries), check out their work, choose something you like and get tattooed!

If you want to be a little more cautious you can pre book a tattoo by contacting your artist of choice directly via our website’s artist page via their Instagram or email.

The best time to do so is from about a month pre- event.
