In February 2017 The Tattoo Collective will be taking over The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane to bring you an exclusive must-see tattoo show.
Tattooing is an ancient and enduring art form, and one that has significantly grown in popularity over the last decade.
With new studios opening across the country at an astounding rate, there is more choice in artists, styles and designs than ever before.
The Tattoo Collective is proud to provide a unique insight into the UK and Ireland’s rich and diverse tattoo scene, and has singled out the most innovative and accomplished tattoo artists working across the country today for a show that represents the very best of UK and Irish studios.
Over the course of three days in Brick Lane’s iconic Old Truman Brewery, 150 of the most prolific inkers will come together to produce their tattoos. They will be accompanied by a carefully curated collection of must-see tattoo art exhibitions.
The biggest names in the UK and Irish industry will combine with the country’s most talented newcomers, each handpicked for their exceptional skills.
There will be a huge variety of tattoo styles and artwork on display – and available to purchase at the show.
Exhibitions will include Jupiter’s Daughters, a powerful collection of paintings based on the Japanese zodiac calendar from London-based tattoo artist Claudia de Sabe (see her work, pictured left).
This is rare opportunity to acquire a permanent piece of art from the country’s most sought-after ink masters. It’s a true celebration of tattoo culture.
Further exhibition news will be announced soon, so watch out for announcements online.
When: 17-19 February
