We get it, Cincinnati is cool now. Well, Cincinnati is about to became even cooler thanks to the inaugural Greater Cincinnati Tattoo Arts Convention happening this weekend, hosted by Villain Arts, the “world’s largest and most successful tattoo arts convention tour.”

While at the convention, guests can walk-up and get a tattoo or book an appointment to get some fresh ink from the 150-plus artists in attendance. Tattoo contests covering a range of categories including Best Portrait, Best Lettering and Best Traditional will take place throughout the weekend, and sideshow-style entertainment acts like Alakazam: The Human Knot and Live Human Suspension will be there to distract you from the pain.
