The Best Tattoo Expo on the Gold Coast
It’s our pleasure to bring to you our annual tattoo expo. This is a place for local parlors and tattoo lovers to unite and enjoy each others work and perhaps even walk away with your first tattoo. Whether it’s your first time getting a tattoo or maybe its time to get rid of one that you got previously, Gold Coast Tattoo Expo is just a place where you can do all of that.
Thinking about getting a tattoo or even choosing what kind of tattoo you want can be a daunting experience. After all, this piece of art can permanently be on your body unless you want to spend a lot of money getting it removed. It’s always important to do as much research as you can and check online for some artwork that you find meaningful to you.
Tattoos are Fine Art
It’s not just a gimmick. Don’t get something tattooed just because someone else has. Don’t jump to get someone else’s name tattooed on your body either. Think outside of the box. Think about what means a lot to you and what you would be proud to have on your body. Just like art, you never usually see a painter or artist paint the same painting twice. An artist may have a certain style or a certain way of showing expression, but you will never see the same painting. That is what a tattoo should mean to you. It should be artwork on your body. Yes, it’s okay to search for examples for inspiration, but at the end of the day, it should be something that you come up on your own.
Find the Right Artist
At our expo, there will hundreds of artists that will be available to give you a tattoo that you’re looking for. However, don’t just go for whomever is the cheapest. That’s not to say that lower prices tattoo artists will not be of the same quality, but, the ones that charge a lot are some of the best in the industry. As they say with anything that you buy out there, you get what you pay for. There is no substitute for going cheaper and expecting the same quality of work that some of the higher tiered artists can provide.
Its also important to keep in mind how complex your tattoo is going to be. If it’s something simple, then generally any tattooist can take care of you. If it’s something complex, then you will have to find someone that has the experience and confidence to take care of you. I cannot say this enough; a tattoo is PERMANENT. Don’t rush into anything. Do your research, take your time, and make sure you pick the right person for the job.
For the ones that made a mistake
We’ve all been there. We had an idea, it looked and sounded great on paper, but after years of staring at it, that love and that passion that we once had for something starts fading away. In fact, it may fade to the point where love can turn into hatred. The good news? There are solutions now to remove ink from our bodies. Luckily the ever-evolving realm of technology is on our side. Lasers have gotten better year after year and now we have nearly a pain-free solution for removing tattoos. With that said, if you do have that in mind, we will have tattoo removal experts at the show as well.
We look forward to seeing you at the expo! Entrance fee will be charged prior to entering the event. We do have a maximum capacity to the venue; however, we will not limit tickets. We simply will have to close entry until people leave the show. Once there is room, we will begin to allow people in line to enter. The entry ticket fee will be $20.00. After that, cost of tattoos and other services will be on a booth by booth basis.
