All tatted up
The third annual All American Tattoo Festival will give tatted-up guests a reason to disrobe. How else are they supposed to compete in the tattoo contests? Those with virgin skin will have ample opportunity to strip down and get tatted up by locally and internationally known ink artists. If you’ve got a second-rate tat, stop by one of the vendors specializing in tattoo removal. (Hey, you with the butterfly tattooed on your lower back, I’m talking to you.) The tattoo love fest is scheduled for Friday from 4 p.m. until midnight, Saturday from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tickets to the festival are $15 per day or $30 for a weekend pass. The event will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center at 1303 J Street. Call (916) 487-8979 or visit www.allamertatfest.com for more information.
