Get Ready for Daily Coverage of the 2016 London Tattoo Convention

This year’s event will feature top tattoo artists —including Tattoodo Ambassadors Mike Rubendall, Henning Jorgensen, and Founder Ami James.

That's right, folks. The world's leading tattoo artists have traveled from far and wide to gather in London for perhaps the most impressive display of talent the tattoo industry has to offer. With the likes of Nikko Hurtado, Oliver Peck, and Tim Hendricks, joining our Tattoo Ambassadors Henning Jorgensen, Mike Rubendall, and our Founder Ami James, it's guaranteed to be an unrivaled showcase of talent. And that's just the tip of the iceberg considering that there are over 400 artists making an appearance. 

Last year this frontal in-progress piece took a total of 3 convention days - 24 hours to complete. Congrats on winning Best in Show 2015 Julien Siebert! #londontattooconvention #juliensiebert #chest #skull

Can't swing a ticket to London? Don't worry, once again we've got you covered. In addition to sharing our favorite tattoos from the weekend via Instagram, Ami and the Tattoodo crew will be covering the convention in real-time and going on Facebook Live from the Love Hate booth (numbers 2-5 in The Upper Great Gallery).

We were on hand last year for the 11th annual convention and we just had to go back for more. We're sharing some of our favorite photos from last year's festivities to give you a small taste of the debauchery ahead. Every year is better than the one before so don't be surprised if the 12th Annual London Tattoo Convention is the best one ever!

The convention kicks off this Friday, September 23rd, and machines will keep buzzing until Sunday the 25th. In between all of those buzzing machines will be a slew of can't-miss entertainment. First, you have the Fuel Girls (look for our post about them a little later today) doing insane things with their bodies and fire. Then there are bands like Orange Goblin and Raging Speedhorn just waiting to rock your face off. The London Tattoo Convention is a serious attack on all of your senses that will leave you wanting more!

Be sure to check the Tattoodo App, our Facebook page, and our Instagram to see some of the best tattoos being created in Jolly Ol' London this weekend. Next week we will have a recap of the entire convention, so keep your eyes out for that!
