A Cracking 2016 Liverpool Tattoo Convention

This weekend saw the 9th annual Liverpool Tattoo Convention in the UK.

I had major FOMO this weekend, as I was seriously missing out on one of the most exciting events in the UK tattoo calendar. Thank God for Instagram...

With live tattooing from over 250 of the world's best tattooists, competitions, stalls and a final awards ceremony, the Liverpool convention is a must-attend event for any UK tattoo enthusiasts.

I was gutted to not be able to make it up to Liverpool this May, but was able to follow the shenanigans online.

Here are a selection of Instagram photos from the weekend, taken and uploaded by the lucky sods getting tattooing, eating burgers, taking bubble baths (yep) and generally just have a jolly good time.
