Art, Expos, Festivals

This weekend, the Twin Cities hosts an ink party at the 10th annual Minneapolis Tattoo Convention. For the next three days, revelers will be able to immerse themselves in the world of body art—and art in general. Things kick off Thursday with an art show at Gamut Gallery (see above) showcasing artwork from tattoo artists. Things move to the Hyatt Regency on Friday for an expo boasting a variety of happenings. Tattoo enthusiasts will be able to check out portfolios and possibly schedule a session with artists from around the nation. There will be live entertainment from contortionists, burlesque performers, daredevils, and fans of body-mod suspension. Tattoo contests run the duration of the festival, and highlight the wide variety of styles available these days, such as hyperrealistic portraits, blackwork, and stick and poke. Check out the full schedule at villainarts.com.
