Tattoos, Twi'leks, and More Coming to Celebration Europe

Star Wars Tattoos

That Star Wars tattoo you've been thinking about getting? Star Wars Celebration Europe may be the perfect place to take the plunge and get it done.

At Celebration Europe, fans can get the Star Wars tattoo that they've always wanted -- and then show it off on stage, with live tattooing in the Celebration Experience Exhibit Hall, and a Tattoo Competition on Sunday.

Shane Turgeon, the author of The Force in the Flesh, and Marc Draven, creator of Ink Fusion, will present the biggest and best Star Wars Celebration tattoo experience in Germany. With many renowned tattoo artists from points around the world, the Star Wars Tattoo Pavilion will be the place to see and be seen. Appointments can be booked ahead online (details coming soon), or in-person at the Tattoo Pavilion, space and time permitting.

Check back soon for more details and appointment information!

More Autograph Stars at Celebration Europe!

Those attending Celebration Europe now have even more reasons to queue up in the Celebration Autograph Hall to meet their favorite personalities from the Star Wars films.

Amy Allen

First appearing on the cover of a Dark Horse Comics book, the striking blue Twi'lek Jedi made an impression on writer/director George Lucas, who decided to include the character in his own movies. Allen -- who was at the time a production assistant at ILM -- was recruited for the role in Attack of the Clones, and returned to be covered in blue makeup for Revenge of the Sith.

Kenny Baker

Kenny Baker is credited as R2-D2 in all six films of the Star Wars saga. Baker's performing career started at 16, and has spanned theater, film, television, ice shows, the circus, and even the Star Wars Holiday Special. As R2-D2, his footprints are in the cement outside the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Paul Blake

A busy stage actor with performances worldwide, Paul Blake can nevertheless claim that his rare movie performance as Greedo in A New Hope was played opposite actor Harrison Ford. Fans have not stopped debating details of that fateful scene even now, almost 36 years later!

Official Pix will be posting the process soon, for how to secure tickets for the Celebration Autograph Hall. Keep checking www.officialpix.com for more information!
