January will see more than just the return of the Adult Entertainment Expo in 2013. The Modified Dolls will be presenting their first convention to the City of Sin on January 24th and 25th. "Viva La Ink: Alternative Beauty with a Cause" tattoo convention happens at the Riviera Hotel and Casino and promises to be a unique experience for attendees.
While tattoo conventions aren't unheard of, Viva La Ink seeks to take the tattoo convention to a new level. Not only will it include vendors of clothing, arts and crafts, jewelry, and other merchandise, but it will include chapters of the Modified Dolls from around the country, raising awareness and money for different charitable organizations.
If you are going to any convention this winter, Viva La Ink is the one to be at. Modified Dolls from around the US will be there as will tattoo artists and vendors from Las Vegas and other states. It is the place to get new ink done, network with people in the industry, and take part in supporting some amazing organizations.
