Today I’m excited to announce some massive that I will be involved with this weekend! If you follow the Marry Me Ink Facebook page and Twitter page, you’ll already know this. 

I am SUPER excited to announce that I am officially an Award Sponsor for this year’s Manchester International Tattoo Show taking place Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of August at Manchester Central (For other Mancunians.. It’s also known as the GMex)

The Manchester Tattoo Show (which is already firmly established as one of the UK’s most popular conventions) returns to Manchester Central this summer and is bigger than ever.

For the past ten years, the Manchester Tattoo Show has been one of the leading conventions on the UK tattoo scene. The event attracts tattoo artists of the highest calibre to the city for a weekend of fantastic ink and great entertainment.

With over 5,000sqm of the Manchester Central being used, the event welcomes world-class artists, live acts and entertainment and traders and vendors for visitors to enjoy.

This growth comes following a growth in demand and investment from Jazz Events, which already runs three leading UK tattoo conventions and acquired the Manchester Tattoo Show in 2012. Shelley Bond, event manager commented: We’re excited to be enhancing this already popular show, giving ticket holders a better than ever chance of getting inked by one of the world’s leading tattoo artists. This year we have ‘Circus’ theme with related acts and performances taking place all weekend; there will be a lot going on and something for everyone.”  


Pre–booked ticket holders have the benefit of gaining access to the venue and their favourite tattooists half-an-hour before the show officially opens to the public. With some artists working on a first-come, first-served basis this is particularly appealing to those wanting some ink from the masters who rarely visit the UK.

This year, Manchester-based tattooist, Louis Molloy who has tattooed a host of celebrities, including David Beckham, is expected to be one of the most in-demand names at the event. He will be joined by leading artists from the world over as well as some exceptional UK talent.
