If you’re in the mood for a new, or indeed first, tattoo then David Shrigley is offering to indelibly ink your body with his art at the Abandon Normal Devices festival…

Shrigley already has quite a following of tattooed fans who have used his visual musings to illustrate various parts of their bodies. There’s a rather sweet quality about many of the examples, collected here on Shrigley’s website, while some are just, well, clearly quite bizarre additions to be sporting on one’s arm/leg/buttock.

Shrigley’s tattoo parlour will be open from 11am to 6pm this Saturday October 1 at Utility, 60 Bold Street, Liverpool L1 4EA, with studio Dermagraffiti on hand to commit ink to skin.

Shrigley tatts are available by prior appointment only and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You can book a session via tattoo@andfestival.org.uk. The event is part of the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival of new cinema, art and digital culture, which in on now in Liverpool until October 2.
