Held annually in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, the Australian Tattoo Expo is the biggest event of its kind in the country, bringing hundreds of the best local and international tattoo artists together under one roof to showcase their work and celebrate art and tattoo culture.

The Australian Tattoo Expo will take over the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from the 14th - 16th September, giving visitors the chance to meet their next artist, watch them in action, research the latest trends, and even treat themselves to a tattoo on the spot. With over 250 artists set to attend, visitors are sure to find inspiration for their next piece.

Daily tattoo competitions will take place each evening, including the third round of the 2018 Australian Tattoo Series. Artists will continue battling it out for points to come out on top, with the overall winner of 2018 taking home $10,000 in prize money at the end of the year.

Hosted by Chasing Ghosts frontman, Jimmy Kyle, the event will feature a packed entertainment program, with the Fuel Girls returning to Australia to set the stage on fire with their high-octane aerial and pyro shows. Fans of streetwear are in for a treat as Sullen Clothing bring the Sullen Angels competition to Perth for the very first time, and you definitely don't want to miss out on the Sh!ttest Tattoo Competition, so come along on Sunday and show off that ink you thought was a good idea at the time!

With so much to see and do, you definitely don't want to miss out on this celebration of art and tattoo culture.
