Belize Tattoo Expo
2nd Annual Belize Tattoo Expo a success in San Pedro Town Over the weekend of May 27th and 28th, more than 100 local, regional and internationally renowned tattoo artists descended on Ambergris Caye for the Second Annual Belize Tattoo Expo. Held at the R.A. Nuńez Auditorium, Belizean tattoo artists, along with artists from Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and even the USA, demonstrated live tattooing, while also displaying their portfolios, paintings, drawings, and other art mediums.
For just $20 a day, the expo attracted hundreds of tattoo lovers, where many individuals came eager to get inked. From brightly colored pieces to black and grey portraits, artists crafted away for hours, tattooing on their willing human canvases. Those who didn’t get inked explored the booths, enjoyed delicious food, and picked up memorabilia on sale.

We revisited the international Belize Tattoo Expo this past weekend and walked out the arena totally impressed with the works of art by the professional tattoo artists but also in shock after we witnessed the freak show that was part of the expo’s entertainment lineup.
The buzzing of tattoo guns filled the air as we witnessed artists from Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica, USA and Belize, each unique in their style, technique and skill. We were three of hundreds who went to enjoy the two-day tattoo expo; there was plenty of artists at work to admire, food, souvenirs and entertainment.
