A Taste of Ink 

Feeling faded is fine at the club, but those wishing to stand out at the first-ever “Real Deal” Tattoo Convention at the Uptown Theater (3700 Broadway) this weekend might reinspect their body art before standing up tat-to-tat with their peers. The all-ages event honors local tattoo artists Gene Grimm and the Grimm family for their longstanding local creativity. Expect competitions, live music and body-art booths. Needles will be buzzing today and Saturday. Doors open at noon each day, with contests judged at 4 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to registered participants and their artists for tattoos in several categories, including best sleeve and best back piece — all the more reason to wax off and lotion up your ink-adorned skin. Advance passes — $10 for one day, $15 for both — are available at the Uptown’s box office. For more information, call 866-968-8288. Uptown Theater
Fri., Sept. 7, noon; Sat., Sept. 8, noon
