Last month Johnny Strange returned to Hungary to perform at the 2017 International Budapest Tattoo Convention.
Once again, returning for the 4th time in as many years, Johnny Strange entertained audiences with death defying acts – even enlisting the help of an audience member to pull a swallowed sword out of his throat.
The audience member who joined him on stage, coincidentally happened to have a tattoo of a sword swallower on her left shoulder!
