Founded by Damian Allison, the first edition of the Malta Tattoo Expo was successfully held in November 2014, and brought together the local tattoo community for the very first time.
It started with 30 local artists and 1,500 visitors over 3 days. Since then, the Malta Tattoo Expo doubled each year in every aspect. We hosted 60 artists the 2nd year and 90 artists the 3rd year from over 15 different countries. Welcoming the likes of Dave Paulo (PT), Neon Judas (DE), Durb Morrison (USA), Phil Kyle (UK), József Török (HU) and Clod ‘The Ripper (IT), the Malta Tattoo Expo solidified itself as one of the best tattoo conventions in Europe for the month of October. In 2016, the show was also hosted by one of the most famous international models and performers in the world, Červená Fox.
