Tattoo Convention In Colombia Features Horns, Hooks And Hair-Raising Body Art

Hooks, horns and hair-raising body art - it's all in a day's work for the participants at the third international tattoo convention in Medellin, Colombia.

If all-over body tattoos and devil horns do nothing for you - how about the spectacle of men and women suspending themselves from the ceiling, hoisted by what look like meat hooks through their shoulders?

Your mother probably won't approve.
