First up was Ink, Iron & Hot Rod - a Hot Rod, Biker and Tattoo show....here are some of the cool cars at the show;
Next up, it was off to Devon for Inkfest Tattoo Convention. Devon, on a sunny day is tranquill, scenic and beautiful. Unfortunately it rained hard pretty much the whole weekend! My stall buddy Kally and I were camping....need I say more?! Enjoyed the show and there were some great bands on, but the soggy factor really did put a literal dampener on the whole event!
View from the show site (held on a caravan holiday park).
Ah it looks so scenic....this didn't last!
And some of the tattooists at work!
Outfit post Me: 80s Hawaiian dress (£10 from Vintage Fair) with leggings
Outfit Post Kally: Amazing octopus print sarong dress with petal bust, made by Kally herself!
And a close up of the print - how fab?!
Vince Ray and the Boneshakers played, who I have seen many times, but always put on a good show!
And finally, this weekend was the Bolton Tattoo Bazaar.....a lot closer to home (Devon was a rainy 7 hour drive away!)
Outfit post from Saturday: Skull shoes are Betsy Johnson that I got last year in Miami beach for $15.
High waist spotty pencil skirt from UK supermarket Asda, £14 (Thanks to my friend Jo for the tip off on that one!) Vest was an old one from H&M. Jewellery is of course Dolly Cool, and some Bakelite and Resin bangles.
Kally (in another amazing handmade Hawaiian wonder....not jealous at all of her sewing skills - humpf!) with her friend Kitty
Sunday outfit, Dress £9 from children's section in Asda! Yes, I do buy kids clothes....always have done! I always like the prints far better than the boring 'adult' ones!! I'm with one of my oldest pals, Jenny, who was over from Australia (where she lives now) for a visit :) I totally egged her on to get tattooed at the show....which she did! yay!
And finally - Kally reading her copy of Tattoo Revolution magazine, which her friend, and tattoo artist Rachel Baldwin is on the front cover, wearing one of Kally's hats! Cool :)
