Loitered Lens: Great British Tattoo Show

Beauty’s only skin deep, but some tattoos… live forever?

Great British Tattoo Show

Smaller than some of the other tattoo shows around, the Great British Tattoo Show was a good introduction to tattooing for the relative newcomer or ink virgin, but had enough going on to satisfy the more experienced customer.

Although there were some inks and machines for sale, the overall feel was less industry, as well as being less crowded than the bigger shows, which made for a relaxed atmosphere.
