Day two of the three-day gathering of tattoo fans saw droves of inked men and women flock to the Tobacco Dock in Wapping. 

The International London Tattoo Convention sees people from across the world marvel at each other’s impressive designs and even get some new work done.

Now in its 15th year, the event hosts more than 400 renowned artists from counties such as South Korea, Germany and Spain.

Organisers describe the weekend event, which also features live music and trade stands, as ‘the most exciting, anticipated and resoundingly successful celebration of body art in the world’.  

Among the icons who flaunted their ink before photographers included Zombie Punk, who has forged a frightening image of a fiery red mohawk, black and white contact lenses, spiky piercings and ink.

But other snaps from the event pictured the likes of David Milligan and Francieli Frankem whose body plays host to intricate designs rather than opting for an outright shock factor.
