October 19, 2013 – (center) Kris O’Neil receives a tattoo of a lion on his chest from tattoo artist Jacob Phillips of Virginia at the Memphis Tattoo Arts Convention running Friday through Sunday at the Memphis Cook Convention Center. The first major Mid-South tattoo gathering in a decade is expected to attract some 6,000 local, national and international aficionados and practitioners of body art illustration and modification who will show off their designs, techniques and their own personal canvases. O’Neil chose a lion for his second tattoo because he described himself as having a heart of a lion; however, he admitted getting his shoulder tattoo was a lot easier.
