Clockwise from above left, Jeannie Kipe of Pennsylvania observes as an artist from Ohio-based Pins & Needles Tattoos fills in her rose tattoo with color during the Southern Maryland Tattoo Expo held Saturday at the Charles County Fairgrounds in La Plata. The expo featured more than 50 vendors and display booths inside of a renovated farm warehouse. Guests checked out display tables and watched as others got their tattoos done on the spot. At left, Matt Strickland from Creative Hands Tattoo & Piercing Studio, based in Waynesboro, Pa., sits behind the display table as he sketches a sheep’s skull with a ballpoint pen. Strickland has been an artist for 20 years and a tattooist for 12, and also has his own business called Matt’s ART. All of his artwork displayed was created with a ballpoint pen, permanent marker and graphite pencils.
