4 Days To Go | Sharpie Tattoos at Salford Arms/Tattoos by Lou from 5pm

With Chapel Street being taken over by the fictional but all-too-real SoundsTown on Sunday 6 May, there are some changes afoot at some of our venues. The Salford Arms, for example, is becoming Tattoos by Lou, run by proprietor Lou Armstrong. Have you met Lou?

Naww bless, you’re in safe hands with LOU ARMSTRONG, the biggest arms in SoundsTown over at “Tattoos by Lou” aka Salford Arms and ft. Bad Uncle Gentle giant Lou Armstrong’s trigger finger is poised, and whether you’re a blank canvas or a pre-existing painted lady/gent, Lou has got a tattoo for you! Come get inked by the best in the biz. ////// *This message is brought to you by the SoundsTown Local Area Tourism Association Committee
