You can also learn more about the following: York International Tattoo Convention, which saw more than 4,000 people attended last year, is an exhibition for tattoo artists, collectors, and everyone who would love to gain an insight into the world of tattooing and body modification.
The event brings together artists from around the globe to perform live body piercings and tattoos. Traders also sell their products, from clothing and jewelry to taxidermy, spooky decorations, and jewelry.
The New Earswick Bowls Club will host the New Earswick Bowls Club’s annual convention from Saturday, 16 to Sunday, 18 June.
It will boast more than 200 stalls, 170 artists, and 38 traders, whose stalls include Crow Crafts, Silver and Goth, Heavenly Darkness, Wantiques, Yorkshire Barber, Sugar Skull Dreams, and Face Painter.
The York-based Volsung Vikings reenactment group, a rock and roll DJ, and a live band, The Memphis Cruisers, will entertain guests.
The York Special Olympics and Yorkshire Air Ambulance will benefit from the event.
A spokesperson from the Tattoo Convention stated: “We’ve been doing this for 13 years, and it has been a huge success each year, but each one is a bit different.”
“We change the theme every year. The theme for last year’s show was Medusa, and Jamie Watson painted the artwork. This year, we have returned to our Viking roots, using a painting by Richard Guy.
“We auction these original artwork pieces off, and along with our tombola, all the money goes to our two fantastic charities – Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the York Special Olympics.
Friends and family run our event. A small team works hard to organize the show and bring artists and traders to the festival. We also raise money for charities that deserve it.
We look forward to meeting you at this fun, family-friendly weekend.
All ticket entry fees have been eliminated by the convention, which said it believes in low prices.
The doors open both days at 10 am and close at 7 pm on Saturday and 6 pm on Sunday.
“We felt that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance didn’t receive the recognition it deserved,” the spokesperson continued. We chose this charity because they have saved lives that we love and know.
“We decided to support the York Special Olympics when we moved to the Bowls Club six years ago. We wanted to do something worthy of the members who have been so wonderful to us. We chose the York Special Olympics because of this.
“Over the years, we have raised thousands of dollars for various charities. We are so proud of our accomplishments.”
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance has generously gifted us a beautifully framed picture that we will proudly display at our tattoo studio in Scunthorpe. ABH Tattooing.”
