Love Ain’t Forever, But a Tattoo Sure Is

Did the gal on your tattoo break your heart? Sounds like it’s time for a cover-up. Change your “Sally Forever” into “Ally Fever” -- with a sick tribal running through the middle -- this weekend at the 12th Annual South Florida Tattoo Expo. The three-day needlefest is packed full of bands (the Hep Cat Boo Daddies, 77 Swindle, and Slip and the Spinouts just to name a few), along with celebrity guests (hell, yeah, pro wrestlers) and contests for every conceivable tattoo-related category that you can concoct. Although it would be nice if there were a prize for Tattoo That Didn’t Stand The Test of Time, then I could enter my coveted “Farfrompüken Spring Break ’94” back piece. Maybe next year. It all goes down at the Deerfield Beach Hilton (100 Fairway Dr., Deerfield), and the proceeds benefit Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital, so don’t be a cheapskate. See the full schedule at Tickets cost $15 to $30. Friday and Saturday kick it from noon to 1 a.m., on Sunday from noon to 7 p.m.
