We absolutely LOVE a Tattoo Convention, and Manchester Tattoo Tea Party is one of our FAVOURITES!!!!
We actually went to this two years ago before we started the business and met the wonderful guys at RSI Apparel which we are still super lucky to be friends with today!
We've chosen five Artists that we can't wait to see this year at Tea Party. We thought we would choose five Artists that we haven't worked with before through doing a bit of Insta-stalking - when we wrote this post Tea Party hadn't announced the full line up.
We do know that Joanne Baker and Daryl Watson will definitely also be there this year so we encourage you to go and check them out as well!
So in no particular order...
MERRY MORGAN is a great blackwork Artist based in Somerset. We love the Xray style of some of his work as well as the beautiful use of empty space to become part of the Tattoos.
CHARLOTTE ROSS - Her instagram is full of lovely floral and nature tattoos. This watercolour of Dita Von Teese really stood out for us. Based in Glasgow, we are jealous of our Scottish friends having access to such a great Artist.
STEPHIE EVERETT has worked in mainly Black & Grey in 2016, as you can see from her insta montage below. Based near us in Cheshire we have bumped into Stephie at a few conventions and adore her traditional, stunning designs.
NATALIE PETAL GARDINER These awesome neo traditional tattoos are lovely. With Natalie's instagram set out in sublime circular designs you can see how aesthetically pleasing her work is as an Artist! Based in London.
Lastly, but by no means least is ISOBEL JULIET STEVENSON MORTON who's cute designs we love, just as much as we love Studio Ghibli! Isobel is based in Birmingham at Second City Tattoo Club.
Who are you looking forward to seeing at this years Tattoo Tea Party?
