World class tattoo artists showed off their work and gave tattoos at the Salt Lake International Tattoo Convention. Charlie Cartwright, Jack Rudy and “Shanghai” Kate Hellenbrand from the film Tattoo Nation met with fans, and tattoo contests were held throughout the event. The prize for the worst tattoo contest: a bucket of rocks and $500 toward tattoo removal at Ink Doubt Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic. Guests were also able to browse over thirty vendors, ranging from local body piercing shops to art schools.
