This category tree is for websites for or about artistic and entertainment activities, including artists, institutions, organisations and events, in the United Kingdom. The UK Topical section of the directory lists sites by topic, and depending upon the category, you will find sites of broad nationwide interest or in some cases, nationwide lists of sites.
Sites may be listed again by geographic location, and by following the links to the four countries and then the counties and localities, you will find resources relevant to specific locations within the United Kingdom.
Very few, if any, sites will be listed at the top of this category.
Please find the correct sub-category for the topic and suggest the website there.
Provided a physical address is included on the website, you may also wish to suggest the website to the category for the geographic location.
Not all sites will be suitable for listing once by topic and once by location.

This category is for decorative body modifications of all kinds, such as tattooing, body piercing, body painting, traditional Indian mehndi (painted henna designs on the hands and feet) and decorative scarification and branding.

Site submission should be made here if your site is backed by a brick and mortar establishment, located in the United Kingdom, that offers a variety
of services such as; tattooing, piercing, bodypainting, scarification, branding, and mehndi.

Please post here only businesses which operate in such a large part of the UK that they cannot be listed at country or region level, and which offer additional services, e.g. an image library, besides photography itself.
