This weekend the Pasadena Convention Center hosted the Golden State Tattoo Expo, sponsored by Inked magazine. Needles were buzzing nonstop as what appeared to be hundreds of patrons were becoming illustrated men and women. The weekend included booths and the tattoo expertise of artists such as Paul Booth, Nikko Hurtado and Jess Yen and entertainment from the likes of burlesque dancer Raquel Reed. The Golden State Tattoo Expo ran Jan. 29-31. All photos by Hannah Verbeuren
