Stoke-on-Trent’s first tattoo convention set to be ink-credible – Stoke-on-Trent Live


Tattoo artists from across the country will show off their skills at an event in Stoke-on-Trent.

Two tattoo studios from the city have teamed up to hold the first Potteries Ink Unleashed convention later this month.

The event, which is billed as a family day out, will bring together some of the UK's best artists who will compete against each other to win prizes in various categories.

It has been organised by Scott Campbell and Kevin Hanks from Incredible Ink in Milton, and Stefan Hanks of New Image Tattoo Studio in Burslem.

Stefan, aged 42, of Stockton Brook, said: "It's going to be a great day out. These artists are coming from all over the country to be here.

"It will support and give a platform for organisations and businesses from Stoke-on-Trent to help shine a light on the great work done by all involved.

"Nothing has really been happening because of Covid and we wanted to have an event to get people back out enjoying themselves. It will be family friendly, with entertainment for the kids, live music, dance performances, food and other stands."
