PHOTOS: thousands attend London's annual tattoo convention

Miami Ink and NYC Ink star Ami James is the weekend’s star attraction.

BURLESQUE, ART EXHIBITIONS and live music are all part of the line-up at the eighth International London Tattoo Convention taking place across the water this weekend.

Over 20,000 inked men and women will descend on the Tobacco Dock building to meet some of the world’s most famous artists who will be practising their work in public.

Altogether there are 13 sterile halls dedicated to tattooing around the building and about 1,000 tattooists are still hoping for accreditation to the event.
