Hosted at the iconic Tobacco Dock, it made quite the setting for this elaborate event showcasing weird and wonderful body art from all around the world. The three day event is held at the end of September each year. There was a whole host of scantily clad ladies in attendance too, including alternative entertainer and burlesque dancer Cervena Fox, glamour model Hollie Hatton, fire breathing troupe The Fuel Girls as well as the finale of Miss Pinup UK Competition. Many tattoo fans had travelled hundreds of miles to attend the show, hoping to get a slot with their favorite tattoo artist and add another piece of body art to their collection. As so many of the artists present are from overseas such as the USA and Japan, it is a one-time opportunity to get work done by them on your home turf, if you live in the UK, and save travelling abroad, unless you can wait until next year! It is also a great chance to be immersed in alternative tattoo culture for a couple of days, allowing you to meet likeminded people and soak up the creative atmosphere.
