    New London has lifted a 47 year ban on tattoo parlors setting up shop in the City.

    Get ready to get inked by the best.

    The Visionary Expo Tattoo and Art Convention is in town this weekend and brings the single largest collection of world-renowned tattoo artists and body piercers to the Magic City for the first time.

    For the ten people in Miami who don’t have their ink, this would be the perfect time to take the leap. Or maybe you were just waiting for the opportunity to get that body length tattoo of D-Wade. Here's your shot.

    The three-day event, which starts today, is being held at the Double Tree Miami Mart Hotel and will have more than needles and cool graphics.

    Live music, seminars, painting sessions and visionary art are all a part of the festivities. There’s also a fashion show planned to  display some of the latest gear to accessorize with your butterfly and crossbones tattoos.

    Aspiring tattoo artists will also get to show off their skills in front of some of the world’s best at placing artistic expressions on the body. Artists who have put ink on movie and music stars will be in the building and many of the guest speakers have garnered acclaim from the reality TV showsL.A. Ink and Miami Ink.

    For $15, it’s an opportunity you can’t pass up. Show us your ink by posting a pick at the Moment. Let Miami see how you express yourself.
