Some 50 tattoo artists, Israelis and foreigners, took part in the annual tattoo festival in Tel Aviv over the weekend.

Thousands of visitors participated in the three-day event, being held for the second time in the coastal Israeli city.

Artists set up shop in the city’s popular Haoman nightlub, offering their services to tattoo enthusiasts. Various bands and trinket stalls were also at hand.

Attendees were given a prime opportunity to show off their body art or add to their often impressive number of skin decorations.
