You've never seen tattoos like this before.

At the Venezuela Tattoo International Expo, which takes place Jan. 29 to Feb. 1 in Caracas, the bolder the tat, the better.

Hundreds of people travel from around the world to attend the fascinating event, where they show off everything from eye tattoos (yes, that's a thing) to extreme body modification and even dental implants.

As you might have guessed, these people look pretty intimidating but don't let that stop you from looking at the incredible body art on display.

Check out the coolest photos of the 2015 Venezuela Tattoo International Expo and years past:
