8th Norwich Body Art Festival 19 August 2017

After taking a well-earned break in 2016, the Norwich Body Art Festival returns to the social tattooing calendar for its EIGHTH year! The dates have been announced as the 19th and 20th August 2017, and we return to our festival home of OPEN, Norwich, the stunningly reimagined banking-hall-turned-venue extraordinaire. It’s smack bang in Norwich city centre, and you can take a virtual tour of the building here…

The event runs from 12pm – 8pm on Saturday, and 11am – 7pm on Sunday, although you may want to get there early if you haven’t bought a ticket, as previous years have sold out!

The city of Norwich has become a cultural and musical focal point for people throughout Norfolk and surrounding areas over the years. The City is seeing a growing population of budding tattoo and body modification enthusiasts. The festival aims to show people that the best artists may hold a tattoo machine instead of a paintbrush and the best canvases may be your own skin.

It’ll be two days of tattooists doing what they do best! In addition to this there will be trade stands showcasing everything from fashion to art, some very interesting stage and street performers, an awards ceremony and more!
