The Denver Tattoo Convention is this weekend at the Sheraton Hotel downtown. So if you've been thinking about getting a tattoo since you were fourteen but haven't pulled the trigger because you wanted to make sure you got something that's meaningful, because, you know, you're going to have it forever, you might want to check out the event, and maybe even get an artist to ink you up. Otherwise you might end up like the guys in the video below. -- Joe Tone
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
