Southampton Tattoo Festival returns for the fourth year.

Bringing Tattoo and family fun together with alternate traders, vintage traders, performers, dance troupes and Live music – organisers, Yellow Vintage hope to make this the best event yet.

The festival is spread over this weekend, beginning on July 1 at the Ageas Bowl in Hedge End.

The day will encompass a vintage fair, live music, tattoo convention, children’s entertainment and educational activities provided by the Methodist church. Kids under 15 go free.

There will be an exhibition space for traders, demonstrations and interactive classes.

It will have licensed bars, food outlets and a picnic-style family area.

This event aims to be different from most other tattoo conventions as it aims to create the biggest and most spectacular family event in the south of England this year.

More than 100 tattoo artists from around the UK will be there on the day and available for walk-ins.

A tattoo competition will take place at the event with special judge, MTV’s Just the Tattoo of Us, Cally Pothecary.

Fancy Dress and a Comic Con style event will also be taking place.
