The black and white photographs show tattooed Spurs fans at the old Bell and Hare pub (now No.8 Tottenham) prior to kick off, including famed North London tattoo artist Lal Hardy proudly showing off his THFC lip inking.

The tense derby saw Spurs grab a last minute equaliser thanks to a spectacular long range effort by Jermaine Jenas after Arsenal had dominated proceedings at White Hart Lane.

Robbie Keane has headed Spurs in front after 30 minutes, and Arsenal hit the woodwork three times before Kolo Toure turned in a Cesc Fabregas free-kick.

Emmanuel Adebayor, then of Arsenal, headed a second after 77 minutes before Jenas’ late strike.
