Rochester, NY (WROC)- Tattoo artists from around the world convened this weekend in Rochester.

It was for the 7th annual “Roc City Tattoo Expo.”  More than 400 tattoo artists were represented from Rochester, and some coming from as far away as Japan.  More than 3,000 people attended, many getting tattoos and piercings.  Joseph DiProjetto, owner of “Love Hate Tattoo” in the city, started the expo.

“I used to travel around, and work at conventions all over the world, and I thought it would be cool if Rochester could do that,” he said.  “So, I spoke to my friends who are tattooers, and said would you be interested in coming to Rochester, and they were like yeah!”

Tattoo prices depended on design and artist.
