This weekend was the 4th Brighton Tattoo Convention held at the racecourse.
The convention opened at midday on the Saturday and due to other constraints I had to leave by 1:30 to file and move on to other things. It was clear once there though that by leaving so early I would miss so many attendees and shots.
Given the timescale and the layout of the convention (very tight spaces with high walled booths) I concentrated on the artists and the work they put in..
Whilst most of the artists were using the needles and ink we associate with tattoos, in one hall there was an artist using traditional methods. Being set up in a boxing ring, it was very difficult to get a good angle to show what was happening (there was also lots of blood which I wanted to show but not too graphically).
Overall it was a very interesting event to cover and one I should have given more time..
