What is the International Tattoo Convention Malta?

The Malta Tattoo Expo was first held in 2014, with the intention of bringing together people involved in the tattoo industry to promote both the art of tattooing and the artists. Although the tattoo culture is not widespread in Malta, there is a growing niche of enthusiasts who take a keen interest in the art. The International Tattoo Convention Malta is now one of the most attended annual artistic event in Malta, which unites individuals who share an interest in tattoos.
