Tattoo lovers are all set for an ink-credible weekend as one of Britain’s biggest and best ink festival returns to Doncaster tomorrow.

The seventh annual Tattoo Jam kicks off at Doncaster Racecourse on Friday with more than 300 artists set to do their stuff over the next few days as people from across the country descend on the town for a weekend of fun and games.

Organisers are promising that this year’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

A host of leading tattoo artists from around the globe will be inking thousands of visitors over three days for the thousands of tattoo lovers who’ll be flocking to Doncaster.

With more than 300 artists working at the event every day, Friday is devoted specifically to those in the industry with seminars, workshops, the Tattoo Masters’ Ball, trade stands, vendors and more before the show opens up to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

A spokesman said: “There will be lots of live entertainment - Tattoo Jam is an unmissable event for anyone with an interest in ink.”

Organisers have secured a host of leading names in the tattoo industry from around the globe, having searched the world to attract artists who cater for every style and taste, including artists who tattoo traditionally by hand, using basic instruments rather than a tattoo machine which is used by most contemporary tattooists.

Hundreds of tattoo booths have been built specially for the show and there will be stalls including jewellery, live bands, burlesque acts, tattoo awards, horror shows and much more
