Coney Island Tattoo and Motorcycle Festival 2012 (SLIDE SHOW)

The inked hordes descended upon Coney Island for the 28th annual motorbike and body-art bash by the sea.

Harley riders and other chopper enthusiasts flocked to Coney Island for the weekend-long 28th Annual Tattoo and Motorcycle Festival. Hosted by the folks at Coney Island USA, festivities included sideshow acts, on-site tattooing and the Miss Coney Island Burlesque Beauty Pageant. It all culminated in a pair of contests that doled out prizes for the best motorcycles and tattoos in a range of categories (such as Oldest and Ugliest for the former, and Best Butt for the latter). See our photos of the customized rides and winning tattoos.
