The London Tattoo ConventionReturning for its 12th year in 2016, the London Tattoo Convention is one of the most exciting and anticipated celebrations of body art in the world. Taking place at Tobacco Dock, it invites 400 of the world's finest, most prestigious and elite tattoo artists to showcase their talents. Attendees this year include the likes of Tim Hendrix of NY Ink fame and Japanese legend Shige. Further highlights this year include a show from fire-breathing acrobatic dance troupe The Fuel Girls, the first-ever 2000AD art exhibition and a Pyrohex stage, hosted by the London-based high octane pyro-fire-aerial performance group Pyrohex. Additionally, guests will be able to indulge in a large selection of real ales, craft beers, cocktails and everything from Mexican to Malaysian food.

Re-launched in October 2012, it has its own outdoor, quayside space as well as a Great Gallery, Vaults, a Quayside Bar and unique walkways that stretch for more than 100 metres.
