Welcome to the most prestigious and respected tattoo show on the planet... The International London Tattoo Convention.

This annual body art expo draws the very best in the business as an elite roster of tattoo artists, vendors, enthusiasts, collectors, and fans descend upon London's Tobacco Docks for a weekend full of inspirational art exhibits, entertainment, celebrities, live tattooing, and musical acts.
