Here we go again!!!!!!!  :)

Round 2 of the Texas Tattoo Showdown is on at the El Paso County Coliseum today.  More bands, more artists and more ink for one and all!!

If you don’t have a tattoo yet, this is totally your weekend as you have about 200 artists in one spot with all kinds of different specialties and ideas!  If you’re already inked, you know you want another one!!  Get one from a local artist, or one from a national artist. The people you read about in the tattoo magazines and watch on the television shows are all waiting for you inside!

Outside, live rock from a BUNCH of bands!!  Local and national bands build up to the headliners; Authority Zero, Bowling For Soup and  Hawthorne Heights!! 

All set up in a family friendly enviroment!!

A lot of people, male and female, of all ages hit it up yesterday including Joe Barnhill. According to the El Paso Times, Barnhill is a 65 year old El Pasoan with approximately 90% of his body inked!

”I’m a collector, at least that’s what I call it,” said Barnhill, who has about 90 percent of his body tattooed. “I can’t afford real art, so I have to settle for living art.”

Don’t forget Spike TV’s “Half Pint Brawlers” and the human suspension show!!

The Texas Tattoo Showdon continues today until 11 and tomorrow from noon to 11pm.  Tickets available at ticketmaster outlets, The Coliseum and ticketmaster.com.

Come getcha’ some!!
