The last weekend, more than 400 tattoo artists and tens of thousands of tattoo enthusiasts assembled at London’s Tobacco Docks, for another glorious edition of the world’s most famed tattoo festival – The International London Tattoo Convention.

A three-day carnival where tattoo enthusiasts came to show off their skills, display their ink, chat about their passion for body art, and – of course – get tattooed by some of the best artists in the industry. Like every edition, this year too the convention was a brilliant place of acceptance and inspiration, where for a few days, people could proudly show off their art in front of people who will truly appreciate it.

And, this year saw some magical tattoo art in display, to say the least. For instance, six world class artists came together for a mammoth full back tattoo collaboration, which was completed in less than 8 hours. Yes, you heard us right – LESS than 8 fucking hours. But that’s not all. Some of the canvases who went up on stage probably have the most radical ink of current times on them. From the likes of Shige, Steve Butcher, Tommy Lee Wendtner to absolute legends like Filip Leu, LTC was again graced by the biggest names of tattooing.

Here are some of the photos from the past three days to make you feel that burn a little more, since you probably couldn’t make it to the convention.

Great weekend at #Londontattooconvention
