The South African International Tattoo Convention returns to Cape Town for the 3rd annual show with an upscaled offering of tattooers, bands and even bigger experience for visitors.
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.
What Makes It An Experience Not To Miss?
There is something genuine and special about this global meeting place of world travelling artists. It offers a high-quality tattooing experience in a professional environment where you will receive world-class advice and have a wide selection of tattoo styles to choose from.
The vibe always includes storytelling between travelling tattooers and clients alike, meeting people from all walks of life and getting to hang out, browse or even tattooed. Whether you are collecting a small memento-type tattoo from an artist’s drawing sheet, looking for some fine art prints for your home or committing to a full day tattoo by your favourite artist, there is an unexplainable magic that happens when so many people come together to share the stoke and get tattooed under one roof.
What Happens Other Than Tattooing?
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. (Please note, children under 5 will not be allowed inside the tattooer exhibit hall area)
