SHOW SOME SKIN: Skindustry Expo Tattoo Convention

We don’t judge by the color of someone’s skin. In fact, the more colors it is, the better!

This weekend marks the return of the annual Lehigh Valley tattoo convention. There will be over 100 tattoo artists from all over the US, many from local shops. When you get overwhelmed from watching all the tattooing, check out one of the live performaces, including Tina Spinz and her Burlesque Sideshow. Tina will be performing the “Hoop Hustle”, a street show adapted for the stage, the MC is a comic-magician, and watch for a Puppet-Come-to-Life and a striptease by a Bearded Lady. Hoop Hustle at 2:00pm, Sideshow at 5:00pm.

Many vendors will be there to sell their wares, and there will be a photobooth set up by photographer Ashley Barker Ricciboni. Stop there to create a one-of-a-kind souvenir of you, your friends and family, and of course your tattoos!
