  1. Tattoo Tea Party 2014

Tattoo Tea Party 2014

The first weekend in March was another busy weekend for Killer Ink, we were at the third Tattoo Tea Party in Event City close to the Trafford Centre in Manchester. This is one of our favourite trade fairs. Besides the great artists the show attracts there is the inevitable high standard of work which is shown and loads of other entertainment.

This year was no different and saw the return of the gentlemen’s death match; where grudges could be settled in a boxing ring with huge oversized boxing gloves. The only rule: Do whatever you like but with the gloves on! There were also free Dodgems and a variety of entertainment on stage.

Naturally the main attraction is the amazing high caliber of artist’s work on show and this year’s award categories were very competitive.

The winners of each category are as follows:

SMALL COLOUR: Paddy by Alex Rattray of Bizarre Ink

LARGE BLACK & GREY: Darren by Tommi Crazy of Middleton Tattoo Studio

SMALL BLACK & GREY: Greg by Emma Kierzek of Aurora Tattoos

NEO TRADITIONAL: Lewis by Jethro Wood of The Circle

BLACKWORK/TRIBAL: Kathy by Stu Dixon Dawson of Tattoo Carnival

REALISM/PORTRAIT: Gavin by Joe Carpenter of Cloak and Dagger

BEST NEW SCHOOL: Tom Sloane by Angus of Awol Tattoo
