The first UK tattoo convention of the year, the social event all about fantastic tattoo art.
Over the course of the weekend some of the best UK and International Tattoo Artists work to create some incredible skin art.
There is also once again a graffiti art demonstration and workshops (produced live by some of the countryâ€™s best graffiti artists), BMX and skateboard demonstrations, custom paintwork displays, a BigTattooPlanet.com art gallery, ArtFusion canvases, topped off by the National Tattoo Photography competition.
NEW for this year!
Live ice sculpture demonstrations, an unplugged music stage, street dance and beatbox performances which will compliment the graffiti element of the show, a much bigger graffiti wall (over 60ft long!), a traditional Henna Tattoo area where all the family can come and get one for free, and finally MyTattooWall.
There is a specific photo booth to take photographs of every one of the publics tattoos.
These are printed out on the day and displayed on a giant â€˜MyTattooWallâ€™.
At the same time they are uploaded to a website creating an interesting and creative photomontage, not only at the event but online of all our visitors.
Held at the Telford International Centre and just minutes off the M54 Motorway, Tattoo Freeze 2011 is ideally located to attract a large audience, which made it a great day out to kick off the show season.
With a very â€˜chilledâ€™ and laid back atmosphere, you could admire great artists and artwork, get some new ink, or simply meet friends old and new.
