Tattooing has been legal in most places in America - but legality came to New York City only a year ago. And with legality, comes the first New York City tattoo convention. NPR''s Margot Adler talks with participants at the convention and with Margot Miflin, author of "Bodies of Subversion," which is a history (with illustrations) of tattoo art.
