How tatted are you? If you are one of those full-sleeve, fully grown human canvases, chances are you might have to cover up during the workweek. So when this weekend hits and you are ready to unwind, why not do it while proudly displaying the precious tats you worked so hard for? Now take that vision and add a twist of charity and you have yourself a pretty irresistible combo. This weekend's South Florida Tattoo Expo will feature more than 115 booths with tattoo artists from all over the world, a car show, 14 live national and local bands, and even some celebrity guest experiences. Do it all while raising money for the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and come back to the office Monday morning with a smile. Who knows -- maybe you'll even run into a coworker.

Expo hours are noon to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $20 a day or $40 for a three-day pass. Call 954-343-5585, or visit floridatattooexpo.com.
