If you’re one of the few surviving members of the human race who has yet to be voluntarily tattooed or pierced, then pat yourself on the back. You are, quite ironically, the real contrarian. Still, if you’ve been hoping to dip your pen in the inkwell, so to speak, your moment has come. Over 200 of the nation’s finest tattoo artists and body piercing experts will be on hand — or whatever part of the body you prefer — at Phoenix’s Body Art Expo at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, 1826 West McDowell Road. The three-day expo runs through Sunday, and single-day tickets start at $20. Check it out from 2 to 11 p.m. on Friday, February 13. For details, is it www.bodyartexpo.com or call 626-961-6522.
Fri., Feb. 13, 2-11 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 14, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 15, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., 2015
