CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- The 16th annual Florida Tattoo Expo began Friday with proceeds from the all-volunteer event benefiting a children's hospital.
"Tattoo Dave" Amchir, the founder and coordinator of the expo in Coral Springs, said he is hoping several thousand people attend the event, which began at noon Friday and benefits the Children's Cancer Treatment Center at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.
Amchir said more than 100 artists and vendors are on hand at the event to create all types of tattoos.
"There is something for everyone," Amchir said. "The craziest and most wildest looking things."
"The women, they like to have that feminine flower on the lower back or shoulder," he said. "A lot of girls like skulls, too."
The expo runs through 7 p.m. Sunday. Admission costs $20 per day or $40 for all three days.
