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

The convention invites a curated collection of 90 tattooers from over 15 different countries all over the world to present their own personal style of tattooing.

As the only tattoo event of its kind in Africa, SAITC offers a high-quality tattooing experience in a professional environment. If you choose to get tattooed you will receive world-class advice and have a wide selection of tattoo styles to choose from.

You can pre-book your artist and start talking design and process to avoid disappointment, but walk-ins are also welcome.

The show will take place on March 29, 30 and 31 2019 at The Lookout, V&A Waterfront.

March 29 2019 – 5pm to 10pm

March 30 2019 – 11am to 10pm

March 31 2019 – 11am to 9pm

For those who are not up for a tattoo but still want to experience the vibe, the 3-day show will also offer 6 live bands, 3 food trucks and a market area with fashion and lifestyle vendors, chocolatiers, coffee roasters, a beer garden, and an ocean view deck bar.

Everyone is welcome to attend the show. Children of all ages may attend but those under 5 will not be able to enter the tattooer exhibition hall.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Friday – R195
