Tattoo artists and body art fans from across the globe have descended on London for one of the biggest and most prestigious tattoo conventions.
"This is like the Premier League of tattoo artists from all over the world who come here to show their work," organiser Marcus Beriman said.
"I can't really talk right now," said Emil Sarelind, who came from Sweden especially for his latest ink.
American celebrity tattoo artist Ami James said attitudes to tattoos have "changed completely" in the last ten years.
"There is no taboo about getting tattoos any more and you can see by how many people who come to these conventions."
The event runs from 27th to 29th September and is being held at Tobacco Dock in London.
