A love for tattoos attracted thousands of people to the International Tattoo and Art Expo at the Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton over the weekend.

The popular event, held over two days, draws some of the best tattoo artists from around the country each year.

It is also the perfect opportunity for those passionate about their tattoos to show off and compare and even get more ink done.

A wide variety of designs - from traditional cultural patterns to more contemporary motifs - were on display.
