Year upon year the Liverpool Tattoo Convention Competitions are hotly contested and the work on show is mind blowing. Those kind enough to judge for us have a hard task at hand as the entrants display eclectic tattoo work from the UK’s and the worlds best.

Update – For 2017 we have introduced a runner up award in each category.

Winners receive a coveted Liverpool Tattoo Convention Trophy and runners up and entrants receive an award certificate.

The judges decision is final, if neither the winning entrant or the winning tattoo artist is present when the award is announced we will contact the artist following the show and arrange for receipt of the award.

Without further adieu, the award categories for Liverpool Tattoo Convention 2017 are:
