About Australian Tattoo Expo

For our 16th year in 2024, The Australian Tattoo Expo brings the world’s leading tattoo artists and brands together for Australia’s most trusted and established Tattoo event.

For 16 years, Australian Tattoo Expo has been bridging the gap between the general public and the tattoo community with a commercial approach to tattooing that champions tattoo quality, tattoo safety, and a connective principle of accommodating the multiple sub-community groups of artists, styles and industry leaders.

ATE is an event where patrons, from first-time tattoo lookers to those looking for insight and connection or seasoned tattoo enthusiasts, can all feel accommodated in a safe, well-planned, and directed event space operated by The Australian Exhibition Group’s event management team and CMMN community builders.

The Australian Tattoo Expo National Tour will hit Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and finish up in Melbourne.

Our patrons come to ATE to explore and learn about different tattoo genres, histories, trends, and techniques, and for a glimpse into the niche and complex culture of tattooing and body art.

Our online artist library offers research and pre-event bookings for the artists tattooing live at the show. If you haven’t booked in advance, that’s fine; you can walk in with your ticket and get tattooed on the spot with thousands of tattoo designs available from flash to one-off custom pieces. Meet the industry’s most talented individuals or even discover your next artist and make a future appointment.

With our community-first and united principle, our event offers access to artists with the qualification of their skill. We welcome all communities, genders, and international artists. We do not exclude any artists and take pride in the artist brand-building opportunities we have created with access to our platform of 16 years. You’re all invited to experience the Tattoo Industry up close and personal in 2024.
