The Tattoo Collective 2018

For the second year running our realism artist Radu was kindly invited to attend The Tattoo Collective, a unique and innovative tattoo convention showcasing the best of British & Irish studios and inspirational art exhibitions at The Old Truman Brewery, London.

150 pioneering tattoo artists from selected studios within Britain and Ireland were carefully chosen to attend in March 2018, hand-picked by Miki Vialetto organiser of the London Tattoo Convention and Tattoo Life magazine.

The Tattoo Collective is unlike most Tattoo Conventions, it focuses completely on the tattoo art produced by the incredible UK talent that we have today and their artwork showcased in a huge exhibition within the Convention. Nothing fancy, no flame throwing half-dressed women or sword swallowers. It really is all about the art and taking everything back to basics of the industry we love. 

Thank you Miki and Nadine once again for the opportunity of attending and congratulations on another very successful year! See you next time!

We've included a few highlights in the short video and photos below, there was A LOT to include but you get the idea. Happy Watching!

A few photos from the weekend....
