Tattoo lovers in for treat at convention

Letter of the day

Have your say

TATTOO lovers will have the chance to get inked at a family-fun weekend event this month.

Staff from My Last One Tattoo Studio, in Copnor Road, Copnor, will hold a convention at Portsmouth Guildhall on July 28 and 29. More than 65 tattoo artists from across the globe will show off their skills and ink people up in different styles. Bands, street dancers and burlesque dancers will take to a stage inside the building.

Shirley Willett runs My Last Tattoo Studio with her husband Steve.

Steve’s friend Tony Bennett, of the Isle of Wight, has also helped them put the event together. Mrs Willett said: ‘It will be a family fun event with lots of entertainment.

‘People will be able to come along and get themselves a tattoo.

‘There will also be an awards ceremony with prizes for those who got the best tattoo over the weekend.’

The event on both days kicks off at 11am.

Entry costs £10 in advance and £12 on the door. For more information visit portsmouth
