I would like to go as I have a tattoo on my back that needs to be touched up, but $20 admission! What do you get for the $20? Is there a goody bag or something? Will there be full on naked bodies covered in tattoos on display? Any tattooed johnsons for one to ogle?

I like that booth at the Renaissance Faire where you can throw tomatoes at peoples heads. That and the shelf boobies. That guy in the picture is NOT worth $20. I wanna see a johnson tattooed to look like a centipede or something gross like that. I mean $20 is like a pair of underpants at American Apparel for crying out loud!

Since I have a booth there this year, I am partial. I think you have to really be into this to understand why it is worthy the price of entry... you have access to some of the world's top artists - they are at your disposal for a great tattoo. For example, the Sideshow studio tat artists are all actual artists before they are hired, so you know you are getting a very artistic, well designed tat. The local tat artist around the corner from home might not be quite as accomplished, who knows.
Products geared toward tat lovers abound - from baby clothing to tattooed purses! Contest can be fun to watch and they go on all day and night, along with some pretty great people-watching. I personally love seeing all the face tattoos and saw a guy yesterday with a huge red kiss mark tattooed right on his cheek, amazingly brave and crazy stuff!
Guess you need to really dig tats to understand why it's worth the admission price, personally I would pay it even if I weren't already in the industry.
