Tattoo Booths


Were setting up the Ink and Iron convention a little different, working with the licensing perimeters here in NSW.

We have both solo artists booths for our Overseas participants and Shop booths.

Our aim is for everyone to have a great time and do well from our annual event.

NSW Australia has strict Tattoo performing regulations please check the State Regulations to ensure you have complied.

Operators / Artists without NSW Licenses or Council registration (interstate and overseas artists) will be prohibited from trading.

We are here to help every step of the way and are working with the council on your behalf. Please complete the Artist Participation Form.

For $1650 plus Gst. (Multiple artists space for a max  of 3 beds).

This event has been designed for Tattoo artists and the public with 'bang for their buck' in mind. We also consider our trade stalls, vendors and artists by providing the best prices, content, and exposure.

We are supporting the industry by donating artwork by auction at the Ink and Iron Sydney event to the Australian Tattooist Guild.  -   Our apologies - We didn't get to Auction our painting performed LIVE By Andrew Swarbrick (our Guest Artist from Left-hand Path, 'the shaky south' - Christchurch New Zealand).

We have sent it to the ATG for their next Fundraising Auction.

The ATG is a group of passionate artists donating their own time to work alongside legislative representatives to shape a better future for the Tattoo Industry. They are volunteers working tirelessly providing relevant information, help, and guidance to all areas of our nation's Tattoo industry.
