Southern Ink Xposure, the biggest tattoo event in the southern hemisphere gets ready to colour Cape Town in January 2011 once again!
Thanks to artist Manuela Gray and her husband Allan, the international tattoo convention is in its third year and will be celebrating and showcasing the best in global tattoo culture and lifestyle on South African soil. In order to provide attending artists and the public with a more intimate setting, the event has been moved from the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) to the Pavilion Conference Centre (formerly the IMAX / BMW Pavilion) which is ideally situated at the V&A Waterfront complex.
Whilst big-name convention “regulars” such as Paul Booth (USA), Bob Tyrrell (USA), Nick Chaboya (USA), Glen Paradis (CAN), Manuela Gray (SA), Jay Jay (SWE), Rev. Simon White (SA), Joe Johns (USA), Tyler Murphy (SA), Gordon Claus (Ger), Tom Tattoo (ITA) and Garth Staunton (SA) will again be setting up shop at S.I.X 2011, more top international artists are being confirmed and will be announced in the coming weeks. Visit www.capetattooconvention.co.za for updates!
Southern Ink Xposure 2011 attendees can also look forward to an expanded art exhibition programme, more music concerts (featuring at least one international band!), greater variety of market stalls, more competitions, and a bigger entertainment programme on the convention floor itself.
Convention tickets are available from Computicket.
