    Some 80 tattoo artists from all over Germany converged in Berlin for the 3rd annual Tattoo Festival 2013 to present the newest trends and techniques in tattoo art. Very popular this year are tattoos with Japanese comic art as well as realistic tattoos like portraits and classic art.  During the 3-day event in December, various bands performed on stage, raffle prizes were given out and contest trophies awarded for the best body tattoos and tattoo artists in different categories. Visitors were treated to the presence of Rolf Buchholz from Dortmund, Germany (last photo) during the festival.   He holds the current record in the Guiness Book of Records as the man with the most piercings on earth, a total of 453 piercings on his tattooed face and body. The Tattoo Festival is a convention of national tattoo artists and fans. In the summer, the International Tattoo Convention Berlin takes place, attracting many people from Europe and other parts of the world.
