The Art-Covered Bodies at the Old School Tattoo Expo

Thousands of ink lovers gathered at the Ramada Plaza Hotel downtown for the St. Louis Old School Tattoo Expo, an annual celebration of gorgeous body art, informative seminars and innovative techniques. We visited the three-day affair on November 15, 2014, and found attendees proudly showing off their tats or getting new ink.
