The convention, held at the Tivoli in Buckley, was a celebration of tattooing, and also featured pole performances and alternative cabaret such as fire eating.

The organisers signed off from the two-day event, saying: "We just want to say wow! What a weekend!

"Thank you to all the amazing artists for their outstanding pieces of work, their clients for sitting for these amazing tattoos, to the judges for judging them, and to the public for supporting them, the entertainers for doing what they do best, and all the stall holders for selling what people want, the photographers for capturing this event and the Tivoli staff - you are all the best!

"Thank you to each and every one of you for Making Buckley Ink 2019 a massive success. We hope to see you back for a bigger and better show in 2020!"
