Tattoo Timelapses – London Tattoo Convention 2018

While at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention, we filmed timelapses of Ralf Nonnweiler, Toni Donaire, Mystik, Matteo Pasqualin, and Lucas Ferreira working on incredible tattoos in a range of styles.

Check them all out below!

Ralf Nonnweiler

German artist Ralf Nonnweiler is known for his incredibly detailed black and grey work and he didn’t disappoint at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention with his tattoo of Star Trek’s Spock giving the middle finger…

Toni Donaire

You may know Toni Donaire from his eye-catching neo-traditional tattoos, so it was only fitting that the Spanish artist created a vibrant neo-trad portrait at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention.


Mystik is an Australian tattoo artist that produces some of the best lettering and script in the business. Check out this sick two-day work he did at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention that spans from the back of the head to the upper back!

Matteo Pasqualin

The legendary Italian tattoo artist that is Matteo Pasqualin was at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention wowing the crowds with his ridiculously clean-yet-detailed black and grey work. This time his subject was the psychological thriller TV series, Hannibal.

Lucas Ferreira

Brazilian-born tattoo artist Lucas Ferreira served up yet another stunning neo-traditional piece at the 2018 London Tattoo Convention!

Barcelona Tattoo Expo 2018 Video

The Barcelona Tattoo Expo returned to the Catalan capital for another year of incredible tattoos and jaw-dropping extreme sports - and Killer Ink was there to catch it all on film!

With more artists attending the expo than ever before, this may just be the best year yet.

You don't want to miss this one!

Our first time attending the Barcelona Tattoo Expo was a memorable affair, and it was great to see many familiar faces at the convention!

Special congratulations go to our good friend Benjamin Laukis, who managed to pick up ‘2nd Best of Saturday’ for a sick piece.

It wasn’t just tattooing that caught the eye in Barcelona, as there were also breakdancing competitions, a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar that was open to artists painting it, and some mighty fine mojitos!

We just want to say thank you to everyone who came over to say hi at the show and we hope to see you all again next year!

Joe Capobianco & Matteo Pasqualin Interviews

In the middle of the 2018 London Tattoo Convention, we managed to grab a quick chat with two legends of the tattoo industry, Joe Capobianco and Matteo Pasqualin.

We got their thoughts on the London Tattoo Convention, as well as their opinions on how tattooing has evolved over the years.

Check out the interview videos below!

Joe Capobianco

American tattooing legend Joe Capobianco was at the London Tattoo Convention as part of The Rat Pack’s series of incredible collaborations. Joe talked us through the differences between European and American tattoo convention, how tattooing has changed since he started, and offered some advice to young artists out there.

Matteo Pasqualin

Italian artist Matteo Pasqualin is a tattooist with 20 years of experience and producer of some of the finest black and grey work around. We spoke to him about his inspiration, technique, and friendship with fellow artist Thomas Carli-Jarlier.

The 2018 London Tattoo Convention was yet another incredible show that saw our sponsored artists picking up some of the biggest awards over the weekend.

Yarson Stahowic took home ‘Best Realism’ for an excellent black and grey sleeve that paid homage to the late Heath Ledger and Chester Bennington.

In the ‘Best of Show’ category, Kamil Mocet claimed third place with his sick horror-inspired full back piece, while a killer collaboration between Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith and Cristian Casas won second place.

We’ll be back to see you again soon, London!

Deauville Tattoo Festival & Tatcon Blackpool 2018

The Killer Ink team was split recently between the Deauville Tattoo Festival in France and Tatcon Blackpool in the UK, but how did our artists get on?

It proved to be a busy weekend with many of our sponsored artists picking up awards at the two tattoo conventions, including a ‘Best of Show’ for a killer collaboration!

So, let’s take a look at how they got on…

Deauville Tattoo Festival 2018

The second edition of the Deauville Tattoo Festival was a big hit, with many of the world’s best tattoo artists taking part in the convention this year.

An incredible back piece that was the result of a collaboration between Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith and Rich Harris won ‘Best of Show’ at the convention, wowing the crowds with its stunning attention to detail.

After a short holiday, Thomas Carli-Jarlier was back in the swing of things in Deauville, taking home ‘2nd & 3rd Best Black & Grey’ for his efforts, including an excellent realistic portrait.

Pipping Thomas to the top prize of ‘Best Black & Grey’ was Alberto Escobar, whose clown-themed piece received great plaudits from the judges.

Rounding off the Killer Ink sponsored artist award winners at the Deauville Tattoo Festival was Christos Galiropoulos, who won ‘Best Realism’ for his healed portrait of Hedy Lamarr.

Not a bad haul for the Killer Ink Tattoo family!

Tatcon Blackpool 2018

A little closer to home now at Tatcon Blackpool, we watched our sponsored artist Kyle ‘Egg’ Williams from Grindhouse Tattoo Productions win ‘Best Small Black & Grey’, as well as triumphing in the ‘Disney Horror’ themed duel.

Geofferson Longley also swept the board, taking home three awards at the Blackpool tattoo convention: ‘Best Old/New School’, ‘Best of Saturday’ and ‘2nd Best of Show’.

A great weekend all round!
