From those with discreet butterflies subtly tattooed onto their hips, to men and women covered from head to toe in masterpieces, Brick Lane in east London will be buzzing with activity.

 

Daily Star Online spoke to Mark Leaver, the convention’s photographer, to get an idea of what to expect – from the beautiful to the mind-boggling.

Ahead of the gathering, which takes place at The Old Truman Brewery, he told Daily Star Online: “Jay Read is the man for horror stories.

“He has had his anus, penis and testicles extensively tattooed as part of his transformation.”

Cammy Stewart, a well-recognised tattoo artist based in Dundee, has also had the shocking anus tattoo procedure done – alongside a variety of other pieces.

Despite the cringe-factor being too much for many people, genital tattooing is rising in popularity, alongside the famous "tattoo" boob inkings.

Perhaps even more eyebrow-raising is surgical nipple removal – a unique form of body modification that’s slowly becoming the next big trend.

Grace Neutral explained to us how body modification is becoming much more popular and the stigma is disappearing.

After getting her eyeballs inked purple, the 29-year-old model has had all sorts of body mods including surgically altered ears and scarification.

She said: “Getting your eyes inked is exactly the same as going to the gym or getting your hair dyed.”

BOOB TATTOOS: Detailed frontal inking

Grace is judging various competitions at the convention, and is keeping her eye out for those looking to push their body art to the limit.

Mark, who snapped Grace for his editorial series, added: “Grace is lovely, don’t let her tattooed eyes scare you!

“She’s a very talented hand poke tattoo artist and now does work presenting with Vice.”

The theme of this year’s convention is facial tattoo positivity, and London will have no shortage of volunteers.

Mark said: “Facial tattoos traditionally have a lot of negative associations, the aim of this series is to provide a positive look on modern facial tattooing. One which promotes the creativity and individuality of the people.

“Tattoos have completely different aesthetics and connotations to 30 years ago.”

Gino Dartnall has an extreme cover-up piece to hide a tattoo he wasn’t happy with.

The scribbled style covers most of his torso, along with his portrait of Charles Manson, and goes down to his fingertips.

He started tattooing himself aged 18, and even did his own face work.

Mark explained the important of the personal element of tattoos, giving one example of a transgender person using inking as a coping mechanism.

 

ntion will see the UK’s top 150 tattoo artists, described by Grace as “pirates,” flock to the capital to unleash their skills on whoever is willing.

There will be hundreds of booths for people to be tattooed in, live music and competitions to find who has the best ink, one of which will be judged by Grace.
