Tattooists from across the world made their mark as part of the International Tattoo Exposition, which was held at the Royal Dock Hall in Leeds.

Artists from as far afield as Mexico, Sweden and Spain joined those from across the region – including Ultimate Skin from Leeds and Wakefield’s Black Craft – to showcase their talents in everything from tattooing to body modification. The charity Leeds Mind also had a stand promoting its work to support people with mental health problems through Inkwell arts – a program designed to assist people through art.
