  1. Went to the Rat-a-tat Tattoo and Music Expo today. Interesting experience, to say the least. The music wasn’t exactly my kind of thing, but I wanted to stretch my horizons a bit. Not to mention add another tattoo to my collection. The artists there were very friendly and approachable, and I had a pretty good time.
