The Pacific Ink & Art Expo is acclaimed as one of the best tattoo shows on the planet. Artists of all styles and cultural backgrounds from all over the world travel to Hawaii every year to showcase, share and learn from one another in a venue which promotes Ohana (Family). Our show prides itself on being a culture forward event in sharing our Pacific Islander culture which consists not only of the ancient tattooing styles known as Kakau & Tatau but our music, dance and Aloha.
Formed by tattoo artists, enthusiasts and collectors our event understands the needs of fellow artist and we put much attention to detail. You experience the true Hawaiian exchange and feeling of family at our shows. You become more than just an artists in a booth. We love getting to know our artists, their families and we look forward to their return every August.
Our visitors who come to experience the INK & ART get to experience so many incredible and exciting things. From celebrities, skate ramps, live music, hula, comedy, getting tattooed, a kids zone, purchasing goods from our vendors and so much more, there is very little that we leave out. We make sure your experience is one of a kind.
To top our 3 day weekend off we always throw an artist appreciation BBQ at a new location in Hawaii which allows the artists to enjoy one last day with one another and our team. Everything is always on us (food, drinks, entertainment and a bus ride from the hotel) however you also have the option to bring your own and drive to the location.
We are honored to be a destination and experience you choose to visit every year. Mahalo for all your support.
