Tattoos are no longer just designs that show how “cool” you are; they are definitely works of art. It seems like the number of people getting tattoos recently has skyrocked, and now, it's almost tough to find someone who doesn't have a tattoo.

For the growing number of people who enjoy body art, this weekend's 2nd Annual Niagara Tattoo Expo (Friday, August 3-Sunday, August 5) was the place to be. Tattoo artists, both local and from around the country, showed off their skills, and, of course, there were zombies crawling the streets (but no worries -- it was for charity). Check out some of the photos from the event below.
