Annual tattoo convention brings noted artists, and stories told in ink [photos]

    Body art enthusiasts from across the region attended the 17th annual Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention this past weekend.

    Visitors had the chance to be tattooed by noted artists from all over the country. Whether it be an ode to a favorite basketball team, a comic book villainess or your toddler’s drawing, there was an artist on hand to lay the ink. The event also featured merchants, tattoo contests and seminars.
