Duke Energy Convention Center, 525 Elm Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202

Everyone knows someone who has a tattoo these days and they can be anything from simple words or initials to intricate portraits done on the body.

Guests at Cincinnati hotels who are already fans of ink or are thinking of getting their first one might want to consider heading along to an event at the Duke Energy Convention Center this summer.

From July 12th to 14th, the venue will be hosting the 2013 Shane O'Neill Productions Tattoo Convention - aka The Gambling Rose.

This is open to members of the public of all ages and will bring together some of the best tattoo artists in the business from all over the world.

Visitors can watch people getting inked, meet their idols - including London Reese, winner of Oxygen's Best Ink - and even get some new body art themselves.

Tickets cost $20 for a day pass or $40 for the three days, while children go free - although they won't be able to get a tattoo, of course.

The Millennium Hotel Cincinnati is the best place to stay when attending the Duke Energy Convention Center, as the two buildings are connected by an enclosed pedestrian skywalk.
