About PIAE

 The Pacific Ink & Art Expo is acclaimed as one of the best tattoo shows on the planet. Artists of all styles and cultural backgrounds from all over the world travel to Hawaii every year to showcase, share and learn from one another in a venue which promotes family, growth and prosperity.

Our show prides itself on being a culture first event in sharing our Pacific Islander heritage which consists not only of the ancient tattooing styles known as Kakau & Tatau but our music, dance and Aloha.

Formed by tattooists, enthusiasts and collectors, our event understands the needs of our fellow artists. With that said, much attention to detail goes into creating an exceptional show for everyone involved.

At PIAE you will experience the true Hawaiian exchange and feeling of family. You become more than just a person in a booth. We love getting to know our exhibitors, their families and we look forward to their return every August.

Our visitors who come to experience the INK & ART get to experience so many incredible and exciting things. From celebrities, skate ramps, live music, hula, comedy, getting tattooed, a kids zone, purchasing goods from our vendors and so much more, there is very little that we leave out. We make sure your experience is one of a kind.

To top our 3 day weekend off we always throw an artist appreciation BBQ at a new location in Hawaii which allows the artists to enjoy one last day with one another and our team. Everything is always on us (food, drinks, entertainment and a bus ride from the hotel) however you also have the option to bring your own and drive to the location.

We are honored to be a destination and experience you choose to visit every year. Mahalo for all your support.
