Sydney Tattoo Expo Authentink Studio

The 7th Annual Sydney Tattoo & Body Art Expo was held on 13th, 14th & 15th March 2015 at the Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park. The event featured over 300 local, national and international artists and attracted over 16,000 visitors over the three days! Authentink Studio was well represented with a huge 5 station booth right near the front door!

The highlight for the expo was Kian Forreal winning the top prize in the Asian/Oriental tattoo contest with his giant Koi Back Piece. What an honour to win first place in his chosen speciality!

All our artists from Authentink Studio worked at the expo, with some continuing work on existing clients to showcase their favourite works for the crowd, but we also put aside time for walk-up tattoos, which is what the expo is all about!

Check out the pics below of the team and all our awesome clients!
