Another year done, and another great weekend of tattoos and performances. Thanks to everyone: the artists, the performers, the vendors, our door people and crew, the venue and their staff, security, and all of you for coming for a look or to get tattooed. We’re already looking forward to 2019.
THATS A WRAP ON THE 2018 CONVENTION!
What Happens at the Dublin International Tattoo Convention
We bring together people who share an interest in tattoos and piercing. You will have the opportunity to meet and hang out with thousands of other people interested in tattoos! The tattoo culture itself is amazing and full of open-minded people. Great opportunity to get out and actually meet people. Also a chance to network and exchange information on the latest techniques and trends.
There are, booths with products and services, competitions and contests, giveaways, art exhibitions and workshops related to tattoo industry issues. There’s food, drink and entertainment. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.
And, yes, you can get tattooed and pierced at the convention. If anything, it is one of the best places because you have an opportunity to get tattooed by artists of note who might otherwise be out of reach due to geographical distance or availability.
Even if you are not sure if you want a tattoo, going to the convention will help you become more comfortable with the process as you can watch tattoos being done and talk to the artists. You might even leave with your very first ink 🙂
PREPARE FOR A GREAT WEEKEND.
AS WELL AS OVER 150 TATTOOISTS
WE ALSO HAVE LOTS OF ENTERTAINMENT
Two artists have 2 hours head to head to complete their tattoos. Then the audience votes. Every year is a nail biter when it comes to the vote count.
We will have live acts playing throughout the weekend. Does miss them – check the timetable under Info for their times.
