Wellington Tattoo Convention 2022
Once again at the beautiful Old Dominion Museum, we’ll be welcoming over 100 of the finest tattoo artists from Australasia to the coolest little tattoo show in the world.
In addition to the 100 artists working the weekend, over 20 ‘unplugged’ acts will take to the stage giving you a feast for your ears as well as your eyes! There’s also a pop-up barbershop, body piercing, a cute little retail area and so much more
We’re always amazed by the quality of work on show at the convention, and each year are honored to hand out a selection of trophies to the best artwork produced at the show. A ‘Best of Day’ is on offer each day, with a full tattoo competition taking place Sunday afternoon.
We’ve got everything in place to keep you well-fed with a wonderful curated little food court featuring some of the Wellingtons’ finest food trucks. And for when you get thirsty our friends from Fortune Favours will be making sure the bar is always stocked, and Good Fortune coffee will be on hand for that caffeine hit!
Whether you’re looking to get tattooed, find an artist for your next tattoo, or just enjoy a wonderful day out amongst cool people, the Wellington Tattoo Convention is a perfect event this winter.
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.
Each tattooist is hand-picked and individually invited by ourselves, giving you a fantastic opportunity to watch these highly talented artists practice their craft and/or get tattooed yourself.
