TATTOO EXPO 2014
February –2 March 2014 at Cape Town City Hall
Ink Xposure 2014
Get excited! The 6th annual Cape Tattoo Expo takes place this month. Bringing
you the best in global tattoo culture, The Cape
is currently the most important lifestyle festival of its kind on the
African continent. With a great range of top local and international
tattoo artists attending and a very exciting arts and concert event
Tattoo Expo 2014
promises to be an exhilarating weekend of pure tattoo art bliss.
organizer Manuela Gray says attendees can expect an incredible visual
display of tattoo artists from all over the world, as well as
the best that South Africa has to offer. The tattoo booths are
situated in various big open rooms in the city hall and even if you
do not book a tattoo, you will be able to see the masters doing their
thing while they are working on their clients.
Manuela says: “The
idea of the Expo is to provide the SA public with an environment
where they can get tattooed by great artists of their choosing. But,
as important, it’s also a platform for tattoo artists to showcase
their artistry, skill, and creativity in an open and social
environment and for the SA public to see how varied and evolved the
industry has become”.
will also be an art exhibition with the theme “Victorian
that will open on Friday 28 February and live bands in the Auditorium
on Saturday night 1 February. Besides the expo, there will also be a few side events that form part of Cape Tattoo Expo.

28 February – Sunday March 2 – VICTORIAN
Town City Hall
– during Cape
Tattoo Expo opening
Art exhibitions have
always been an integral part of the Cape
Tattoo Expo. And this year is no different. In its never-ending
quest to present original art works in original ways by top South African and
International artists, organizers this year are proud to present
‘Victorian Oddities’, a multimedia exhibition of works inspired by
the darker creations and curiosities of our 19th- 20th
Century forbearers. Works will be drawn from an eclectic range of the SA art
scene and, like all exhibitions before promises to be a one-of-a-kind event.
One of the highlights
of this year’s exhibition will be the debut, for the first time outside
of Europe, of ‘Diableries:
Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell”. Created by Brian May (of the
rock group ‘Queen’), Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming, this
book/printed card collection of macabre images are exhibited in stereoscopic 3D
using replica 19th Century viewing glasses. For more information
about this exciting project, visit www.londonstereo.com.
adjunct to the Victorian Oddities
exhibition is the ‘Field of
Dreams’ absinthe display. Many South Africans are
unaware that absinthe – the original Green Fairy, inspirational elixir of
poets, painters, writers and madmen – is now being made locally, by
Jorgensen’s Distillery, the country’s foremost artisan
spirit-maker. The artist’s task is to draw on his/her unique vision and
on the rich history of the Green Fairy to create a unique absinth label. These
one-of-a-kind absinthe bottles will be exhibited (along with an A3- sized
mounted print of the artwork) as part of the Victorian Oddities exhibition. These
collectors’ items will be for sale with some proceeds going to C.H.O.C.
Finally, the 6th annual Cape Tattoo
Expo is thrilled to be partnering up once again with Levi’s to present a unique range of vintage aprons. These
unique items will be designed and decorated by an elite selection of
local artists. Visitors to last year’s expo will recall the amazing
collection work jackets on display. This year’s display promises the same
level of creativity and originality. All pieces will be exhibited in the art
exhibition hall at the Cape Town
City Hall for the
duration of the expo.
