Over the weekend of 13th-14th of May over 300 international and domestic artists featured at the 10th annual Brighton tattoo convention. Thousands descended upon the show over the course of the event to see just why Brighton is one of the dates you must mark on the calendar at the start of the year and why this show, in its landmark 10th year shows no signs of slowing down.
When tattooer Andrew Castruita offered to cover the Star City Tattoo and Arts Expo for us, I knew we had to take him up on the offer. The venue for this Texan based event peaked our interests and I was certainly excited to see what Andrew came up with for us. I'll let him take over from here!
This weekend the Bristol tattoo convention came and went for another year. Run by some of the most passionate people in UK tattooing, and boasting a huge amount of talented artists from around the world, it's fast becoming one of the conventions to go to. We popped down for the Sunday and took some pictures.
