You've always been able to vote for your favorite tattoo shop, now your favorite tattoo artist can get the recognition from El Paso's City magazine. The locally owned City magazine is having their annual "Best of the City" voting contest to find out what businesses and locals are at the top of their specific fields. There have always been categories for food, drinks, shopping, entertainment and businesses for people to nominate their favorites in the Sun City.
