Surf ‘n’ ink: bodies as canvases

Some of the world’s leading tattoo artists will be on the Gold Coast next year with the Surfn’ink 2015 Tattoo Festival attracting an army of gifted artists from around the world.

Peru, Ecuador, Italy, Japan, Germany, China, Taiwan, France, USA, Belgium, New Zealand and Samoa are all represented with a line-up that will be the biggest in the event’s six year history.

The three day festival celebrates tattoo culture with workshops, seminars, art exhibitions, live music and fashion. Visitors can also book tattoos in advance with one of the international and Australian artists.

Renowned tattoo artist, Stefano Alcantara from Peru, will conduct seminars at the festival and also tattoo onsite for those lucky enough to secure a spot. Stefano has been described by many in tattoo circles as “the best in the business”. The VIP guest artist list for SURFn’ink 2015 also includes Hector Cedillo from Ecuador, Khan from South Korea and Alex Nardini from Italy, who will all tattoo throughout the weekend alongside an A-list of tattoo artists from all corners of Australia.

Surfn’ink runs 9 – 11 January at Gold Coast Convention + Exhibition Centre and you can get more info at
