The Soweto Ink Tattoo Convention has partnered with BET Africa for their one-of-a-kind event on the 30th of November.
Sibusiso Dlamini and Ndumiso Ramate, are the creators of Soweto Ink, one of the very few black-owned tattoo parlours based in the heart of one of the most iconic townships in the country. They’re set on building an empire from a culture considered taboo in some black communities.
Alongside some legit sponsors (think Coca-Cola, Miller, Jack Daniels) the Soweto Ink Tattoo Convention was born to create an environment to showcase the crew’s skills, but to also create a community spirit, so whether you want to get inked, already have tattoos or just want to come hang out, Convention weekend should be high on your priority list.
There will also be a competition being held throughout the convention where artists will be judged on their artworks by a panel of judges, with the winning skilled artist winning a title Trophy and a Bike Giveaway.
