West Palm Beach's Tattoo Mania with Big Gus and Maddie La Belle (VIDEO)

This past weekend, West Palm Beach's Convention Center got all sticky with needles and antiseptic for the first annual Tattoo Mania.

The place featured international tattoo artists as well as a few celebs. We spoke with local artists from Aces High and Ink Link, as well as Big Gus of Spike TV's Tattoo Nightmares who told us of a most particularly vile tat he encountered. Also present was new Florida resident Maddie La Belle who appeared on season three of Ink Master. She brought along her newborn and we chatted with her about some of the biggest threats to a tiny human at a tattoo convention.

Check out the whole scene at Tattoo Mania in the following video.
