Shittest Tattoo Competition

At Australian Tattoo Expo, we don’t only celebrate the best of the best tattoos…


Sometimes you need to go to the other end of the spectrum and explore the ghastly underbelly of the tattoo world, Shit Tattoos.

We’re talking the worst of the worst, the tattoos that you hope will never see the light of day… Until they’re shown on our gigantic TV screens at the main stage.

Back in 2017, we hosted the first ever “Shittest Tattoo Competition” and it was an incredible success, laughs rumbled the walls as our legendary entrants got up on stage to showcase their monstrosities in hopes of winning a Laser Tattoo Removal voucher and title of the Shittest Tattoo.

From a 6 pack of Stubbies across a thirsty lad’s stomach, to a questionably detailed portrait of former president Donald Trump on the end of an older gentleman’s bratwurst, you can never be sure what will come up next.

Join us on the Saturday and Sunday of Australian Tattoo Expo (all states) for a big ol’ laugh, some special guests and some SHIT tattoos. To enter, just be at the Main Stage before the competition starts!
