As this tattoo event takes place for three full days here at Damai Craftworld and Events Center, you will see many tattoo artist performing works of art throughout the day.

Most of them will be using modern tattoo practices while you will be treated to some traditional ethnic tattoo practices which are called hand-tapping.

For those staying in town, here is a list of what to do in Kuching if this is your first time there. It is highly recommended that you do a self walking tours around here.

For any tattoo lover, this would be one of the best events to attend in the region as the last Borneo Tattoo Expo took place here in Damai was in 2013.

Moreover, the Rainforest World Music Festival is also taking place on the same dates, so it would be a perfect two in one event to attend.

If you love traditional tattoo's and motifs, this would be a great place to see or even get one done here during the 4th Borneo Tattoo Expo in Kuching.
