Waco will be hosting the IMMERSED IN INK tattoo convention this weekend which starts Friday afternoon.

More than 50 artists from Texas and across the country will be on hand to give tattoos at the Waco Convention Center.

Some of the sideshow entertainment includes magic, fire breathing and a burlesque show.

Hundreds from across Texas will be staying in Waco over the weekend.

Those who are into it, just can’t get enough.

“They are a really good way to express yourself. They’re a real good way to show what you’re into and just be yourself," said Heather Fenton, a festival goer from Missouri. “I’m getting a portrait of my son done. I’ve got a portrait of Elvis I got from my grandma. I have tons of stuff,” said Heather Fenton,

The convention runs through Sunday.

Adults get in for $20 and kids under 12 get in for free.

Weekend passes are $35.
