Museums at Night: Tattoo Live at M Shed


With live music and live tattooing, this Museums at Night will be an unforgettable chance to experience M Shed after-hours.

Jimmie Tatts and Marcos Attwood from Skin Deep Tattoo Studio will be giving live tattoo demonstrations. Skin Deep is a world-famous studio in Bristol and Jimmie and Marcos are the newest addition to the crew. They specialise in a traditional style based on the work of legendary Bristol tattooist, Les Skuse.

Sit down with artists from Purple Rose Tattoo for a friendly chat. Discuss ideas for a new tattoo, ask them about their work and see examples of their designs.

Brad Cowen and Dave Allen from the coolest barbershop in town, Harry Blades & Angry Dave’s will be showcasing the art of classic barbering skills from buzzcuts to hot towel shaves. Sit back with a pint and get a free haircut or grooming treatment (first come basis).

Watch as the hugely talented Painted Peach takes inspiration from traditional tattoo designs to transform her model into a classic 50s pin-up.

You’ll also be able to design and make your own vintage tattoo-style poster with the team from Cato Press – a print collective in Easton.

DJ Oddsocks will be spinning the best rock ‘n’ roll tunes between sets from local live bands. The bar will be open (of course!) so grab yourself a drink, browse vintage stalls, visit the fantastic Tattoo exhibition and look out for roving circus performers.

This Museums at Night promises to be incredible evening whether you’re covered in ink or simply tattoo curious.

Tickets include entry into Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed.
