Flesh Trade

Now’s a bad time to be looking for a career. The only positions available are in “marketing” (selling knives door-to-door), “customer service” (fielding calls about those knives), and “data entry” (giving your Social Security Number to a kindly man from Nigeria). It’s enough to make you think about taking a job as an “escort” for the, uh, honest work.

Rather than trying to break into the overcrowded market for traditional gigs, maybe you should head to Mesa Convention Center, 201 North Center Street, for the Arizona Tattoo Expo. With seminars by renowned tattoo artists such as Noah and Dan Dringenberg, you may just learn enough to make a living out of tatting people up. If that doesn’t pan out, you can always get some ink for that other career.

Fri., May 1, 3-11 p.m.; Sat., May 2, 12-11 p.m.; Sun., May 3, 12-8 p.m., 2009
