With over 130 artists confirmed, the bi-annual festival is set to become a permanent fixture on the international tattoo and art calendar.  Along with tattooing, the festival will feature live music by Shotgun Alley, Devilskin, Leeches and World War Four; aerial artist Venus Star and burlesque performer Eva Strangelove plus art exhibitions, and more.

The weekend long event -  Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November – will be held at New Plymouth’s TSB Stadium.
