Maidstone Tattoo Extravaganza brings bands, tattoo artists and fire performers to Kent Event Centre

By Luke May

The weird and wonderful Maidstone Tattoo Extravaganza turned three this month.

Since 2017 organisers Fraser and Samantha Williams have been bringing tattoo artists from across Europe to show off their incredible talent alongside local bands and performers.

Fraser, who owns Studio 26 Custom Tattoos in Maidstone with his wife, said: "The whole reason we started this was to celebrate tattooing.

"There was nothing in Maidstone like this before. It's still a very niche market. It might not be for everybody but everyone who came loved it."

More than 100 artists, including some from Spain, Malta and France, were at the Kent Event Centre in Detling last weekend.

Mr Williams added: "We try and use the event to help small, local business and bands.

"All of the bands were local and a lot of the traders and from the area. It's always good to see people you haven't seen for a year."

With another successful year under their belt, preparations are already under way for the Maidstone Tattoo Extravaganza 2020.
