The Enigma.

 

INKSPLOSION!
2 p.m., Statehouse Convention Center and River Market Pavilion. $20-$40.

If you have or aspire to have multiple tattoos or piercings, most likely you've had the second annual Arkansas Inksplosion! on your radar for a minute now — if not, gawkers welcome. For three days, tattoo artists from across the country will gather to tattoo people, compete for best tattoo and give tattoo seminars. Musicians will perform in the late afternoon and evening. Eve 6, the L.A.-based pop-punk trio, headlines on Friday. On Saturday, Michale Graves, who gained fame as the lead singer of the second incarnation of the Misfits, continues to wear face paint and sing about the macabre. Green Jelly has admitted to “disguise their lack of ability with stupid props.” Still, after 15 years, the band's metal and visual weirdness has kept a cult flame burning. They also perform on Saturday night. On Sunday, Machina, the latest project from former Evanescence guitarist John Le Compt, plays just before popular post-grunge act Theory of a Deadman. Also on the weekend's bill: More thematically in-line performers like Enigma, a completely jigsaw-betatted sideshow performer with horn nubs and altered ears, and the SR3K Suspension Team, a group of masochists who allow themselves to be suspended in the air, with hooks through their skin. Oww.
