This week in Needled started with a look at tattoo conventions with the expert Bob Baxter, editor of Skin & Ink magazine. Marisa also picks her favorite upcoming convention: this February's Milan, Italy show. Tuesday took a look at a tattoo artist to the stars who takes a spiritual approach to the art, Roni Zulu. Wednesday was all about tattoos and tassles with the Rock-n-Roll Burlesque Review in Las Vegas. In a different vein, a photo essay on The Tattooing Monks of Wat Bang Phro was the focus on Thursday, while Friday is time for jewelry and linen shopping.
