This weekend, September 12-13, the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway is hosting the third annual and international Galway Tattoo Show.
The show will bring together some of the best international tattoo artists in the world mixed with the amazing tattoo talent of some of Ireland’s best tattoo artists. The show is not only a celebration of tattoo art but will feature entertainment, live music, a stunning art gallery, a free tattoo cinema, photo booth, market stalls and traders on show to keep you entertained.
The show features many tattoo artists working, so you can see them up close and get a tattoo if you want to (once you are over 18 ). You don’t need a tattoo to come, many people come looking for their first tattoo or just to enjoy the art, atmosphere, and stacks of entertainment. Some people come just out of curiosity, to enjoy a unique day out or just to see the wonderful world of tattoo art in person. Tattooing celebrates individuality so whoever you are, whatever your interests - all are welcome.
If you’d like to get tattooed at the show it is recommended you contact your preferred artist directly to book in prior to the show to make sure of an appointment in advance. However there will be plenty of artists at the show who will be doing ‘walk up appointments’, so you can browse their work at their stand, have a chat and book in with them there and then.
Day and weekend tickets can be bought in advance and are available at the door. Children are welcome, with free admission for under 14s, but anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The show is open from 11am-10pm on Saturday 12, and 11am-8pm on Saturday, September 13.
