Art that adorns the flesh…

London Calling (A Couple Weeks Back)

October 5th, 2010 by

All apologies for not mentioning it sooner, but the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious London Tattoo Convention took place this past September 24th-26th at the Tobacco Dock in London, England.  Unfortunately, I was not able to attend, though in the future if anyone wants to pay my way to attend tattoo conventions so that I can report on them, I’m all for it. (No chance, I know.)

Any how, although the London Tattoo Convention isn’t exactly the cheapest tattoo convention around – £25 at the door for Saturday, which is basically $40 US, and £20 for Sunday – it is after all London, and nothing is cheap there so you just kind of have to suck it up because the convention looks like a whole lot of fun.

More than two hundred tattoo artists from around the world set up camp and tattooed, met new people and took in the entertainment, which ranged from live bands, to fire breathers to photography exhibits.  The convention itself attracts over 20,000 people.  Did you know that 20 percent of the British population is tattooed?  Now you do.

Check out these photos from the 2010 London Tattoo Convention.  All I can say is that I wish I’d been there.
