Tattoo artists have pretty interesting jobs. One day they might ink a flaming playing card onto an ankle, the next they are planning the preliminary sketches for a horror-themed back panel, and the next they are placing new artwork over an ex-boyfriend's name. This weekend tattoo enthusiasts can check out the best art at the Midwest at Tattoo You Twin Cities. Here, dozens of artists will be showcasing tats, scheduling sessions, and answering any questions that new and experienced tattoo enthusiasts may have. Do you have a piece you'd like to show off? Register your tattoo to be judged by panelists for a chance to win prizes. Evenings will feature live music from a slew of (what else?) heavy metal, classic, and Southern rock acts.
