The Cleveland Tattoo Arts Convention returns for its fourth year this weekend to celebrate all things body-art.

In addition to all the inkwork, expect vendors, seminars and burlesque performances at the Huntington Convention Center. There will also be several daily contests, including Tattoo of the Day, which is only awarded to the best tattoos completed that day.

The convention — run by Villain Arts, which brings tattoo events to cities across North America — has become a popular place to get fresh ink. Many local artists are now taking appointments via the convention's Facebook page.

Tickets are sold at the show, which runs Friday through Sunday, but find out more information right here.
