Tattoo jam 10-12th October

What is Tattoo Jam?

Tattoo Jam is a World Record Breaking Annual Tattoo Convention.

Taking place between the 10th and 12th of October, Tattoo Jam is the most exciting, most anticipated and most talked about tattoo event of the year.  It’s run professionally by the publishers of Skin Deep, Skin Shots International, Tattoo Master Magazines, Tattoo Vixens, The Tattoo Bible, Tattoo Dynamite bookazines and event organisers of the first convention of the year, Tattoo Freeze, as well as The Great British Tattoo Show in London and The Manchester International Tattoo Show.

This year’s Tattoo Jam is once again taking place at Doncaster Racecourse. Following a recent £34 million development, this venue provides a perfect, state-of-the-art location for our three-day event.

With 300+ working artists, a day devoted specifically to those in the industry (ARTIST friDAY), seminars, workshops, the Tattoo Masters’ Ball, trade stands, vendors and lots of live entertainment, Tattoo Jam is an unmissable event for anyone with an interest in ink.

After the success of previous Tattoo Jam events, our aim is to keep growing and improving each year. To this effect we have listened and acted on comments made by artists, vendors and public alike over the years, and wish to thank you for the many positive comments made.

The main room, the Lazarus Exhibition Hall, is large enough to comfortably hold the majority of the UK and International tattoo artists and traders, with separate function rooms available so that we can provide you with plenty of musical entertainment and a food hall that caters for all tastes.

Also, with the demand for Tattoo Jam growing, we wanted to find a site with plenty of open space and parking that is easily accessible nationwide. Doncaster Racecourse proved perfect, as it provides parking for up to 3,000 vehicles, and its location in the heart of the country means that there are good road and rail links from both the North and South.

If you want to be part of something a little different this autumn, come join us for a mischievous weekend at the races.
