Tattoo Tea Party Tour
Back at the beginning of March we made the short journey up the M6 to the 5th Tattoo Tea Party in Manchester.
The convention, which was held at the fantastic Event City, was busier than ever, with artists and visitors coming from all over Europe. More than 350 artists in total where there, and none busier than our own team.
As you would expect from the renowned Tea Party, there was plenty of opportunity to shop, from tattoo themed jewellery to hand burned wooden plaques and key rings, and Rachael’s hand crafted leather earrings.
For those who were all shopped out the entertainment was as varied as it was good. The live body painting was fascinating. It was good to see a wide variety of body shapes and sizes represented, and great to watch a blank body canvass turned into a complete work of art. The boxing arena was a big draw, visitors were encouraged to step into the ring with a pair of giant foam gloves and settle their differences. And of course, great live music is always a favourite of ours.
Tattoo Tea Party is definitely one of our favourites, and next years date have already been announced. If you fancy something a little closer to home though, tickets are now on sale for our very local Robin Hood Tattoo Festival in August.
