Yes, it hurts. Yes, it does last forever. No, it doesn’t “mean” anything. Yes, it will be there when I’m 70. Trust us, get a tattoo and you’ll be answering these questions for the rest of your life. At the same time, though, get a tattoo and you’ll also look like a hardcore badass for the rest of your life. Fair trade? You decide. Ready to commit? The Icelandic Tattoo Expo is back for its fifth year, and world-class artists will be there, needles in hand, ready to ink you up. Pro Tip: It’s a tattoo machine, not a gun. Other Pro Tip: Take a shower before you get tatted. Don’t be that guy.

It’s this weekend at Hótel Saga, but check out their website to make sure you don’t miss anything!
