As Cumbria's first and only tattoo showcase, North Lakes is home each year to a selection of the finest tattoo artists from all over the UK, Europe and even further afield. 

North Lakes Tattoo Show takes place over three days - come join us for a long weekend of top quality tattooing at one of the friendliest shows around.
