The Hong Kong China International Tattoo Convention is back after a four-year hiatus and will host more than 100 tattoo artists from around the world. The seventh edition of the event will be at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from August 25-27.

The convention will be a platform where local artists and their contemporaries from China, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, Poland, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, France, United Kingdom, Spain, Malaysia, and more can meet.

The main attraction of the event will be the Tattoo Competition, which will give artists a chance to showcase their work. The contest is divided into three categories: black and white, colour, and schoolwork. 

Spectators can watch tattoo artists at work during the convention and get an insight into the variety of styles and techniques used in body art.

  • Two-day pass: HK$225 (early bird), HK$250 (regular)
