Inkfest combines live music with tattoo booths where people can pick up some new body art while enjoying the performances.

Visitors can decide whether to stay for the whole weekend and camp at the site, or just purchase a day pass.

There is music from bands including The Flamin’ Ratrods who play their own rockabilly-based songs.

Joining them will be West Country-based ska band The Communicators, The Splash, Hatebomb and more.

Tattoo artists from all over the UK will be visiting the venue, while there will also be several artists from France, the United States and Sweden.

Paco Rollins, an artist flying from Seattle for the event, said: “I loved the first one so much I am travelling back from the US to attend again this year.

“It is one of the best atmospheres I have come across at a tattoo event and I have attended hundreds. Love the mix of tattooing, bands and fun.”

The event is being held at the Sand Bay Leisure Resort, in Beach Road, from June 13-16.

Tickets, priced from £10 for a day pass to £99 including accommodation and food, are available from www.inkfest.co.uk
