The annual tattoo event in portsmouth was held in sunny Southsea.
A fantastic weekend event of live music and tattooing, trade stalls with entertainment across the weekend
Each of Kings Ship Tattoo artists attended.
We had a large area to work in and seeing as it was just up the road from us we were able to bring the vibe of the studio with us. Our hand printed tee shirts, prints created by our artists, Aaron's large scale painting portfolio as well as badges, stickers and sweets to keep the punters happy.
Tattoo conventions are all about showcasing what our artists can do. All of the guys kicked off the weekend with a booked client, either an ongoing project or a tattoo that had been booked in specifically so it could be showcased at the event.
The rest of the weekend was all about walk ups. The artists prepared a number of one hit designs that punters could pick on the day and have tattooed there and then. A very spontaneous tattoo! It's an intense environment to tattoo in, with live bands and the cacophony of hundreds of artists machines buzzing away together. All of the artists did fantastically well and all created some amazing pieces over the course of the two day event.
Check out some of their pieces below
