Guest tattoo artist spot in Blackpool

Guest spots for tattoo artists in Blackpool

Here at Mania Tattoo in Blackpool we welcome tattoo artists from all over to come and work for a day or two in our tattoo studio. We recently had a tattoo artist by the name of Phil Haggerstone from Newcastle working with us.

Phil is the pocket watch tattoo king having done 100's of them (not that he wanted to hundreds of them but you can't help what's popular) haha.

You can find Phil at Arthur T Sharpes, he doesn't want to do anymore pocket watch tattoos and I'd say Phil is more of a portrait kind of guy than a pocket watch kind of guy so go check him out. He'll be back at Mania doing a guest spot next year. You can find more of Phil's tattoo work on instagram

If you are a tattoo artist looking to do a guest spot in Blackpool then call 01253 404234 or email us at

Haunted tattoo studio in Blackpool

Haunted tattoo studio in Blackpool.....

Greetings one and all. This is my first ever Blog ever in the history of all time and I think I may as well start by telling you all about the day we've had at Mania Tattoo.

Today at my Tattoo studio in Blackpool we had a Medium in for a tattoo on her arm, whilst being inked she informed us that there is a spirit hanging around our tattoo studio by the name of Marcus and apparently he is tall, ginger and stoned haha. The Medium also told Mick (our main artist) that a spirit has been trying to communicate with him to warn him about his health (Mick's had a bad abdominal pains for ages and wont go to the doctors, he's also had some scary stuff happen at his flat!!!!).

Main tattoos through the door today:

Black cat
Black and grey dot work rose
Black script

Meanwhile our mate Lewis has been hanging around the shop making adjustments to tattoo machine he's been building which is solid black, single piece (no screws or glue holding it together) rotary machine. After further testing and adjustments he should have a pretty awesome machine for us to distribute via our Tattoo Supplies shop.
So it's been a kinda black kinda spooky kind of day but never a dull moment ;)
