Tattoo.
n. pl. tat·toos
1. A permanent mark or design made on the skin by a process of pricking and ingraining an indelible pigment or by raising scars.
2. A design made on the skin with a temporary dye such as henna or ink.

A permanent mark.
A design. But mostly a decoration.
From tiny symbols and letters to little (or not so little) masterpieces, tattoos are becoming more and more cultivated in the modern society.
But when you think about it, art of tattooing has a long, rich history, it actually isn't just a modern trend.
Remember African tribes.
Or Egyptians.
And Asian tradition.
It came in Europe in 18th century with James Cook and his diary entries about tattooed sailors. Before that only prisoners had them.
And it was very, very popular among sailors. One was not a real sailor without a tattoo.
Tattooing expanded as a contemporary art in modern society and it became a way of expressing personal beliefs, saving memories, or simply aesthetically improving the body.

I mean, why not?
If you like it, if you're sure about it: Do it.

You know that one quote that says "Your body's a temple, why not decorate the walls"?
Well I completely agree.
There are modern, old-school, geometric, colored, black and white tattoos, so if you're thinking about it just do your research and go ahead.
And I'm telling you from a tattooed person's point of view.

Anyways, a word about Convention itself: Very inspiring atmosphere, not much organisation, poor burlesque show but whole lot of ultra-talented people doing their thing, kinda pointless going if you're not getting a tattoo, wasn't in an educational manner, more like exhibition.

Overall impression: 8/10
