The Great British Tattoo Show 2013

May 28, 2013


I was fortunate enough to be given a press pass to attend The Great British Tattoo Show last weekend. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I couldn’t stay for very long.

The tattoo show was held in Alexandra Palace which is quite a beautiful building. I was just confused as to why they decided not to have a cloak room!

There were a handful of custom cars on display.

In the end, I preferred doing some people watching shots.

Happily stumbled on well known tattooed alternative male model Jimmy Q!


What a great poster!

There were ongoing roller derby games being played on one side which I’ve never seen at a tattoo show before and while I liked the idea, the noise from the PA was very distracting.

I wore my Nightcall Brand by Rik Lee t shirt and my custom DAME necklace by Tequila Star.



Did you go to the show? What did you think of it? Did you get any work done?
