Welcome to the 4th annual and International Big North Tattoo Show 2022. The show will be the biggest of it’s type ever seen in the North East, family friendly (Kids Go Free) and we are excited about hosting in Newcastle’s Utilia Arena.

The Show will play host to almost 300 of the very best tattoo artists from around the world, mixing together with the very best local and UK based artists to produce a body art convention that will get tattooed by the best, or simply marvel at the insane skill of these artists whilst they commit masterpieces to skin.

In addition, the show boasts tons of entertainment including, fire, magic, supernatural, music and comedy performances by an amazing array of unique acts PLUS an alternative ‘live’ gaming arcade, market, tattoo competitions, awards, food, bars.

We’ll be adding much more to the website in the coming weeks, so keep popping back to see us!


Advance appointments: you can book an advance appointment with an artist by contacting them directly, just double click a poster to get a better view of their work and find the artists contact details and drop them a line. (this is the best method if it is one particular artist who you want to be tattooed by at the show)

At the show walk up appointments: many artists will have space set aside for ‘walk up appointments’, so just come along to the show, check out their work (displayed on tables at their stand) and book in with them on the spot. The artists will have their own designs, or if if you have your own ideas and want something custom designed, bring along some reference pictures, it helps the artist interpret your ideas. (this is the best method if you want to shop around and get a tattoo on the day)
