The Pasadena Convention Center was abuzz — literally — over the Jan. 28-29 weekend for Inked magazine's California Golden State Tattoo Expo. The weekend event — which has expanded since last year — drew artists from all over the world, and plenty of local ink masters, too. Tattoo fiends from all over the Southland gathered to get stuck with everything from realistic black-and-gray portraits to colorful, surreal pieces. Appearances by burlesque and sideshow performers rounded out a freaky, inky weekend.
