After a four-year hiatus, the Hong Kong China International Tattoo Convention returns to the city for an activity-packed weekend in August! From 25 to 27 August, tattoo experts and enthusiasts from around the world will gather at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for three days of thrilling competition, mingling, and exchange.
One of the highlights of the convention is the exciting tattoo competition, where artists worldwide will showcase their work, New York Fashion Week-style. For the seventh instalment this year, the competition will be divided into three categories: black and white, colour, and schoolwork. Take in a display of beautifully adorned bodies as first-class talents in the tattoo world compete for the top spot.
Visitors will also arrive to find stalls lining the exhibition hall where tattoo artists will offer sessions on the day in their respective booths. If you want to get a tattoo at the convention, be sure to contact participating artists individually for a booking ahead of time.
Founded by Freedom Tattoo, a local studio dedicated to developing and nurturing the Hong Kong tattoo scene, the Hong Kong China International Tattoo Convention aims to do the same on a global scale by inviting a curated group of artists from all corners of the world to participate. 2023 will see a line-up featuring renowned local, regional, and international artists, including Robert Hernandez and Tofi, both known for their large-scale, hyperrealistic works; Davee Blows and Sajin, both known for colourful, vibrant works; Uigu Lee and Sousyu Hayashi, masters of linework and shading; Olga Caca with a portfolio of diverse styles; and Mini Lau and her whimsical designs, amongst others.
