Back for our fifth year, we’re once again excited to invite you to the coolest little tattoo convention in the world at the gorgeous Old Dominion Museum. Hosting over 100 of the leading artists from New Zealand and Australia in a warm and inclusive event. We’re focused on quality over quantity, and guarantee a unique and memorable event for both artists and the public alike.
Each tattooist is hand-picked and individually invited by ourselves, giving you the perfect opportunity to get tattooed, or simply watch some of the best at work.
Alongside the tattoo artists we’ll be welcoming a couple of the finest body piercers - you’re sure to find something new to adorn your body!
The live stage will be busy all weekend, featuring some of the hottest musicians and live acts from around the the region.
At the end of each day we’ll be dishing out prizes for the best work, as well as a comprehensive competition at the end of Sunday.
From clothing and memorabilia to nik-naks and trinkets. There’s sure to be something to tempt and delight! And stickers, always stickers! And lollies…
Our friends at Fortune Favours, Red Bull, Sailor Jerry and Good Fortune coffee will have your every thirst quenched! We’ve brewed a special beer for the event so make sure you give this limited run brew a sample!
For the kids we've got lawn games, colouring, face painting and airbrush tattoos. We’ll be giving away an award for the best airbrush piece on Sunday!
Artists are invited individually by ourselves, but if you wish to get tattooed you will need to contact the artist directly. The Wellington Tattoo Convention does not take bookings for artists. Please be aware, some artists may take bookings for the event and some may choose to only take appointments on the day (walk-ups) - it is wise to check with your chosen artist beforehand to avoid disappointment.
