The making of the Tattooed Truck

The Tattooed Truck was such a labour of love and took the best part of two years to complete, in between other projects that I feel it needs a place within this Blog.

Inspired by vintage Showman vehicles and our pyro/video shows, such as Pyromancy, we decided to build a vehicle front of house for festivals and perform “Pyromancy” or the flame machine installations from a psychedelic antique vehicle, within the audience space.

The 61 year old Austin was coach built from the chassis up and had every mechanical part overhauled, plus the fitting of a modern Bio diesel engine. The images take you on a progress from start to finish and end with the wonderful paint work by Sheffield wall artist Phlegm.

Tattooed Truck has gone on to act as FOH for External Combustion projects at Glastonbury festival and numerous celebratory events in the UK.
