Tattoo artists from around the world will be at the Pennsylvania Convention Center the weekend of Feb. 10. For the 19th year, the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention will draw crowds hoping to get inked. 

Hundreds of tattoo artists will be in attendance, including special guests from "Ink Master." During the three-day convention, artists will compete against each other for "Tattoo of the Day" and other best-in-show titles.

Even if you don't plan on purchasing a new tattoo at the convention, there's plenty to do. There will be burlesque shows and other live entertainment, vendors selling unique gear and a small collection of cars on display.

Tickets can only be purchased at the door and are $22 for a single day or $45 for a three-day package.
