These needles are a little more exciting than getting your annual flu shot.

The Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival is coming to the BMO Centre next month for three days of amazing art, stylin’ skin, burlesque performances, and more.

Anyone looking to add some permanent ink to their skin need only show up and shop around until they find an artist they like — though they can also register with an artist of their choice beforehand.

There will also be an international tattoo competition, with more than 400 artists arriving in Calgary to show off their work.

The festival runs from Friday, October 12 to Sunday, October 14, and tickets can be purchased as either $50 weekend passes or $25 day passes.

Friday night is adults only night, from 4 pm to midnight.
