From March 8-10, tattoo and music lovers convened at MusInk 2013, which took place at the Orange County Fair and Events Center in Costa Mesa, Calif.

MusInk is like a farmers market of permanent body art; there is something for every tattoo enthusiast out there. And for those who have never seen someone get a tattoo before, this is the perfect place to get your feet wet, witness some tattoo art and discover that going under the needle is not that scary.

Many people were going from booth to booth until they found the artist that fit them just right. With a very open and friendly atmosphere, many were fully on display while getting their work done. Prominent tattoo artists at the festival included Jack Rudy, Gill Montie, Robert Atkinson, Bob Tyrrell, Small Paul and many, many more.

For those that didn’t like the buzz of the needles, they made their way over to the music tent where T.S.O.L., Pennywise, Bad Religion, the Vandals, Guttermouth and many more punk rockers took to the stage. Audiences rocked out, danced and formed mosh pits during the musical acts’ performances – it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time!

However, the tattoos artists were definitely the stars of the weekend. Nowhere else could one find so many renowned tattoo artists creating wonderful pieces of body art in one place!
