Bristol Tattoo Convention 2016

Image
This past weekend in Bristol we had our own tattoo convention, held just by Bristol Temple Meads Station.  Last year was the first show and happily this time the word has got out and numbers were well up.  I enjoyed myself there on Sunday and chatted to many fellow tattoo freaks like myself.  Over the coming weeks I will tell their stories.  In the meanwhile here are some photos of the people I interviewed:

This is Nathan Kitchen from Bristol who had his neck done on the Saturday and is about to have the palm of his left hand tattooed.
 Vicky Ball from Devon but lives at Brize Norton and works for the RAF there.
Sam Matthews a youth worker from Bridgend in Wales with her partner Richard Pells a tattooist also from Bridgend
 The tattoo celebrity - Grace Neutral.  She can be found all over the internet!
 Mikaela a tattooist from Stockholm, spending time with Grace for just a week.
 Verity Turner a tattooist at Living Art in Plymouth

And Cindy Stokes, also a tattooist from Living Art in…

A lot of sleeve

On we go with my right arm sleeve, with lots of purple and pink.  For much of the two hours I listened to the shop manager, Stu, recalling his days when working at Butlins in the early seventies. Fascinating.
