Skin Deep Tattoo Contest

The Manchester Tattoo Show has seen some of the highest standard of tattoos being judged and this year will be no exception! On both the Saturday and the Sunday there are tattoo competitions to enter, and these are judged on the main stage.

Please note, as of 2016 the awards are based on work tattooed at the show exclusively.
