Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Police in Corpus Christi, Texas, are cracking down on tattoos - their own. As of November first, officers must keep their tattoos covered. Hopefully, none of the officers were on vacation in Key West. As part of an annual festival, a Florida tattoo artist will try to break the world record for the most tattoos given in 24 hours. The current record is 415 tattoos. To break that, he'll have to make a new one every three minutes. It's Morning Edition.
