There was a huge celebration of ink over the weekend as thousands of tattoo fans got together at the Great British Tattoo show.

Body art enthusiasts arrived at Alexandra Palace, London, for a two-day spectacle that had everything from artwork, portraits, and grand-scale pieces forever inscribed on human flesh. One standout piece came in the form of a Game of Thrones scene.

The Great British Tattoo Show featured some of the finest artists in the industry, and many visitors turned up to stands to get their bodies painted up with new ink.

It all took place in Alexandra Palace’s grand hall where there were also fashion shows, burlesque dancers, and live music.
