H-D® Durban's First Annual Tattoo Convention!

It would seem that the biker image is synonymous with tattoos and the alternative/ rebellious lifestyle. However, It must be said, that tattoos have become rather acceptable both in the workplace and social scene in general! With an ever-growing tattoo customer base, tattoo studios are popping up all over the world - South Africa included.

Harley-Davidson® Durban decided to host their first ever Tattoo Convention on 26th November 2016 at their dealership. A selection of Durban's top artists from 6 studios were tattooing live on the day including (in no particular order):

Teardrop Tattoo Parlour:

  • Gavin Rowe
  • Hilton Hobbs
  • Jarrod Niemack


Electric Eye Tattoo Studio:

  • Mully Hilton
  • Adrian Kok


Bone Deep Tattoo Studio:

  • Dylan Bompas


Nightmare Ink:

  • Daryl Naidoo


The Tattooed Goddess Tattoo Studio:

  • Lynne Branders


Kevin's Kustom Tattoos:

  • Armando Carneiro


Customers could also get pierced on the day by Vicky Hofman from Kevin's Kustom Tattoos! Kurt Fredrick kept the crowds in the mood with his old-school playlist taking us back in time with the likes of Offspring, Blink 182 and many more. Thank you to Monster Energy Drink for all the delicious ice-cold Monsters and to Jack Daniels for treating our customers too! A HUGE thank-you to Makhathini Medical Waste for kindly disposing of all medical waste on the day.

Cafe 1903 (the upstairs diner inside Harley® Durban) served up a fantastic menu including pulled pork buns, muffins etc. Last, but certainly not least, a massive thank-you to every person that came through to enjoy the day with us. Your support is appreciated and we look forward to going even bigger for next year's one!
