Halloween Tattoo Bash held its first show 2007 in Newton Abbott, Devon. It began as a small convention with a selection of artists and has grown to be bigger each year.

Brought to you by Mac Mccarthy, Jo Webster and the Halloween Tattoo Bash team, it is now regarded as one of the most popular amongst artists and the public alike.

Taking place at Wolverhampton Racecourse on 27-28 October, the event features 170+ tattoo artists from around the world, an alternative trade market, body piercing and high end jewellery, tattoo supplies, a VIP fancy dress ball, various live entertainment, a charity auction, hot and cold food including Barney's hog roast and pizza, a tattoo competition and award ceremony and much more.

Raising money for local charities is a huge part of the Halloween Tattoo Bash. Each year they hold a charity auction and artists who work the show very kindly donate items to be sold which vary from artwork, clothing, tattoo sessions, collectibles and much more. They have raised around £24,000 in the last four years and this year’s charity is Pathway Project.

Under 18s are welcome and under 14s are free.
