VIDEO: Scenes from the first-ever Palm Springs Tattoo Convention.

 

Nearly 1,000 people left the inaugural Palm Springs Tattoo Convention with possibly a little more color and body art than when they arrived at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs.

More than 70 tattooo artists were present at the convention, which was the idea of Sean Wood of TG Tattoo in Cathedral City.
