BUZZ GOES THE NEEDLE
It's almost a rarity to see someone in Brooklyn—or anywhere, for that matter—without any tattoos, which makes it even odder that the Brooklyn Inked Tattoo and Arts Convention is only debuting now. The agenda features a weekend jammed with DJ sets, a pin-up competition, stage performances, giveaways, contests, a burlesque performance by GiGi La Femme, a slideshow, and tattoo artist appearances by Chris Bucher and Chris Huff. Of course, you'll get the chance to get some new ink and piercings, too.
