Skin, Ink and Culture- The Pacific Ink and Art Expo


  Traditional Pacific Tattoo Culture will be shown alongside western tattoo technology this weekend.

The Pacific Ink and Art Expo will showcase more than seven hundred tattoo artists- who will be tattooing as well as showing their work. The Expo will also feature local music, art, vintage cars and bikes.  There is also a heavy emphasis on illustrating the connections between Tattoos and Polynesian Culture.  Danny Castler is one of the founders of the Expo.  He says that the event is about culture and education as much as it’s about wearing a tattoo.

The Pacific Ink and Art Expo starts on Friday and runs until Sunday.  More information can be found at www.pacificinkandartexpo.com
