This is the eleventh year for the annual celebration of the skin arts. Watch the professionals tint skin live and in person in the hopes of taking home the title of Tattoo of the Day. The burlesque, belly dancing, sideshow acts, and mechanical art will help your forget about your aching epidermis. There’s even a kids area, although leaving your kids alone at a tattoo festival is just asking for an inked toddler. Fri., Jan. 18 – Sun., Jan. 20, Fri.-Sun., Jan. 18-20. $20/day, $45/weekend.
