Tattoo Freeze 2016 – Fun times and awards for the Halifax Tattoo Collective!

We’ve just come back from a VERY long day at the Tattoo Freeze convention down in Telford. What a show. Such a great vibe and atmosphere with so much going on and lots of friends and familiar faces within the tattoo community.

The convention was a good 2+ hours drive from Halifax and so we’d set off early in order to get down and set up in time for the doors opening to the public.

Steve was lucky enough to have a customer pre-booked in that’d driven all the way up from South Wales to get tattooed by him at the convention and even luckier that they were after a Star wars piece as this is pretty much one of Steve’s favorite things to tattoo.

Working under the ‘All Seeing Eye Tattoo Lounge’ studio name (our other studio based in Liversedge) for no other reason than pthat’s the only banner Steve has got round to getting made up! Ha!


So a Stormtrooper dotwork design had been done and had been approved for the customer and Steve cracked on with getting the tattoo done.. 5+ hours later and he’d seen enough dots to last him a lifetime.

Long way to go!

There was a few tattoo categories at Tattoo Freeze such as Best colour, best black and grey, best Japanese, Best blackwork and there was also a best Star Wars category which is what we entered the piece into. And it won!


It’s always a fantastic thing to be recognised amongst your fellow artists for any work that you’ve done, and awards are a good example of this, especially when you’re up against some real quality work from artists that you look upto yourself.


We have a lot of tattoo conventions that we’re working this year, if you’re ever at one and we’re there, pop over and say hi!


What a great day. Massive thanks too to Lynden and Sharday for helping Steve out loads at the show!
