- The Enigma is one of the performers at this weekend's Slinging Ink Tattoo Expo.
In addition to vendor booths and seminars, the expo includes tattoo contests in categories such as best full sleeve, most realistic, best cover up and best portrait. There will also be a full lineup of live music and human suspension acts, which is exactly what it sounds like.
Highlights of the expo will feature performances by The Enigma, better known as the guy who tattooed his body into a jigsaw puzzle, and question-and-answer sessions with Lyle Tuttle, the legendary tattoo artist and historian.
Tickets are available here. Single day and weekend tickets are available for $15 and $35 in advance, or $20 and $40 at the door. Kids under 10 get in free.
The expo is open from 2 to 10 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Click here for a full schedule of events.
