There are three types of people in this world: those with tattoos, those without, and those who need a little persuading. If youre on the fence, check out the Super Bowl of epidermal modification, the Arizona Skin Art Expo, which features more than 100 of the top tattoo maestros from across the country, seminars about how to become a tattoo guru, and cosmetic-tattooing workshops for those not quite ready to cross over to the other side (the session about bloodborne pathogens pretty much sums up why were still riding the pine).
While contemplating a new and more colorful you, you can also check out the bitch-slapping alpha females of the Arizona Derby Dames roller-derby league, skateboarding tournaments for pros and amateurs, high-fusion belly dancing, and a performance by Phoenix band Primary. Still cant decide? Well, the abundant food and booze especially the wet stuff ought to aid you in making the correct decision about your skins future.
