Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention
Folks looking to add some ink to prime real estate on their bodies may want to check out the fourth annual Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention. Over the next three days, artists from around the country will be in town to showcase their work, chat with potential clients, and tattoo skin. Do you have a piece that you are especially proud of? Each day there will be contests where inked attendees will compete in categories including best sleeve, best black-and-white work, best tribal, and most unusual. Needless to say, there will be plenty of awesome people-watching. However, there will also be live entertainment to gawk at, including book signings, circus antics, and more from the Enigma and Serana Rose, Olde City Sideshow, Crazy Philadelphia Eddie, and Penguin Boy of Freakshow fame.
