Live tattooing and family friendly yard games are among the new attractions at this Saturday’s Orange Pip Market Summer Special in Centre Square.

The event, kicking off at noon, will see tattooists from Skins and Needles doing live demonstrations in the square.

Visitors will be able to watch and chat with the ink artists about the intricacies of their work and the process from ideas to permanent skin markings.

However, all those being tattooed in Centre Square will have pre-booked with the Linthorpe Road-based business and no-one will be able to turn up and be tattooed on the day.

There will also be yard games on offer for all the family which are totally free including hula-hoops, egg and spoon and sack races, target practice, gigantic snakes and ladders, massive dominoes and much, much more.

The Summer Special will also feature twice as many acts on the band stage compared to usual Orange Pip Market events. The full list and times are:

Noon - People Poems & George Boomsma

12.30pm - Iain Gelston

1pm - Salsa Class

1.30pm - Iain Gelston

2pm - Cornshed Sisters

2.30pm - Salsa Class

3pm - House of the Black Gardenia

4.30pm - OP House Band as Weezer

5.20pm – 6pm - Northern Monkey Brass Band

For foodies, parts of the world whose culinary delights will be on offer include Armenia, Korea, Nepal, Middle East, Mexico, France, Goa and much, much more.
