But it's not just about the outstanding body art, this year's show will also host the first ever 2000AD exhibition, featuring original artworks from the iconic comic's illustrators, alongside signing sessions with the very artists themselves, and much more due to be announced shortly.
With a staggering bill of entertainment lined up throughout the weekend, from The Fuel Girls with their electrifying, fire-breathing acrobatic show, to Pyrohex with their high octane pyro-fire-aerial performances, and that's just for starters! The Tattoo Life stage will also hold the weekend's main live performances with Saturday's headlining bands taking to the stage following the day's competitions.
With all that to keep you busy throughout the weekend, you'll need to take a pit stop at their shopping, and food & drink areas, where you can find a great selection of traders to shop from, and whet your whistle at The Sailor Jerry Bar!
It's certainly looking set to be a jam packed weekend, with plenty to keep you entertained throughout the show. The London Tattoo Convention opens it's door on September 23rd - 25th at the Tobacco Dock, E1W 2SF. Advance tickets are available now at www.thelondontattooconvention.com priced from £20 (Friday only) - £50 for a weekend pass.
