“The Biggest Tattoo Show On Earth” Makes an Indelible Mark at the Mirage Convention Center

The Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth, the world’s premier tattoo convention, took place this year at the Mirage Resort and Casino from Friday, October 26 to Sunday, October 28, 2012.

Hundreds of vendors set up shop inside the Mirage's Convention Center where anything and everything related to the tattoo industry were showcased including tattoo equipment and techniques, permanent cosmetics, body piercing, laser removal, the latest fashions trends, jewelry, artwork and many more.  An array of tattoo stations featured some of the greatest tattoo artists in the world that were available, ready, and willing to perform their craft on attendees eager to have their body used as a canvass as an expressive work of art.

Tattoo enthusiasts ranging from people of all ages, ethnicities and genders were in attendance, many of whom took part in competitions where a panel of judges chose the best tattoos in various categories. There were young men and women, mom and pops and their kids and seniors displaying all sorts of designs ranging in categories such as fantasy, celebrity and/or pop icons, landscapes, flowers, as well as patriotic or religious symbols etched on their bodies, which doesn't come cheap. Getting a tattoo can be pretty costly, depending on many factors including the artist's hourly rate and the placement of the tattoo, the design, colors and size.  Some people have even gone so far as to have their face and head tattooed, which seems to be the latest, growing trend.  Better than writing about the event, let the below photo gallery speak for itself. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
