Summer is coming around fast, and with it a whole host of tattoo shows, conventions and festivals that are not to be missed here in the UK. Whether you’re thinking of exhibiting your work or simply going along for the fun, let’s take a look at some of the most eagerly anticipated tattoo events coming up over the next few months.

1. The Great British Tattoo Show – 23-24 May 2015

Forget the Great British Bake Off. If beautifully inked bodies get you more excited than Mary Berry eating a custard tart, get yourself down to London this weekend for two days of live music, catwalks, awards and hundreds of the finest tattoo artists in the UK. After a hugely successful event in 2014, the Great British Tattoo Show is back bigger and better than ever at Alexandra Palace on the 23rd and 24th of May.

2. Southampton Tattoo Festival – 4-5 July 2015

Still undecided on which festivals to hit this summer? Look no further than Southampton for your fix of music, tattoos, fairgrounds and more. The first Southampton Tattoo Festival is already shaping up to be a fantastic family event, with everything from vintage stalls to burlesque dancing. 

3. Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Convention – 25-26 July 2015

Another event that’s geared up for the kids as well as the adults is the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Convention. Marvel at the wonders of body art whilst the little ones (and big kids) get lost in the latest toys and collectibles at this diverse convention in Cardiff. Tickets include entrance to a party on the Saturday night, for a fun weekend in Wales for ink fans of all ages.

4. Tattoo Jam – 7-9 August 2015

Fancy breaking a world record this summer? Some of the leading publishers and conventions in the UK have come together to bring you Tattoo Jam, a huge convention set at Doncaster Racecourse. With an enormous range of activities including free seminars and workshops, fancy dress competitions, live music and more, Tattoo Jam brings together artists and ink-lovers alike to celebrate all things tattoo.
