Photo of the Day: Ink Race


Our Photo of the Day series this week shares photos from this year’s Tattoo Extreme & Body Art Expo in Shanghai.

Many of the visitors were also volunteers as canvases for the events’ artists. At the end of the three-day event, the finished tattoos were voted on, and the winner got a prize consisting of a tattoo-related gift basket and bragging rights. Oh, and also a brand new tattoo, too.

Shanghai Tattoo Extreme is an annual event which was established in the summer of 2015. The event showcases noteworthy tattooists and body artists from both China and other countries around the world.
