Photo of the Day: Tattoo Extreme


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

Shanghai’s Tattoo Extreme & Body Art Expo (yes, that is the name) has been drawing thousands of tattoo artists and fans each year since it launched in 2015. We’re kicking things off this week and diving right in. In frame is Fright Tattoo’s artist Vega, from Ningbo. He got his first taste of tattoo design in early 2012 and immediately fell in love with the art. After a year of learning from masters at Yuan Yang’s New Tattoo studio, he quit his job and started doing tattoos full time.
