One of the most colorful events in the city, the St. Louis Old School Tattoo Expo gathers thousands of ink lovers annually for a celebration of body art and the latest techniques. From a tiny star near the ankle to a sleeve of thorny vines to museum-quality color on the back, tattoos of all types are proudly displayed -- and created -- during the Expo.

Quite a few works of art caught our eye during this year's three-day affair, held November 14 to 16 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel downtown. Below, check out our eleven (twelve, counting the one above!) favorite tattoos from the convention, and then tell us in the comments the best tats you've seen!
