Over the last weekend New Plymouth was host
to a Tattoo Convention.
Guest tattooists, many from other countries,
set themselves up in a local
stadium and visitors wandered through,
looking at their work,
chatting to this person and that.
It was an extremely friendly event.
Some visitors offered their
skin to the tattooists.
The photo below shows a Japanese
at work, using traditional methods.
He always had a large crowd of
observers around him.
And just in case you were wondering,
I don't have any tattoos.
