Brighton Tattoo Convention – 24-25/2 

Image Description

Starting in 2007, the convention celebrates its 15th year with its biggest and best show yet. From the early incarnations at Brighton Race Course, it has grown into a major event on the world tattoo calendar. Taking place in the largest exhibition centre in the South you can expect 450 world class tattooists alongside a host of top class traders and exhibitors. Alongside all of this there is a pop up barber shop, a tattoo competition and many seminars including a screening of the documentary, Eternal Clothing; The Tattooed Shaman of Mentawai, in which award winning Brighton tattooist, Meraki Fade, explores the traditions of a tribe living in the jungles of Siberut Island in West Sumatra. As the convention winds down each day you can also enjoy the afterparties which include familiar local names on the decks including Stay Sick and Dave Mumbles and live band Toto & the Raw Deal.
