Tattoo, Burnout, & Bikini Contest

There's more than $3,000 in prize money up for grabs at Republic Harley-Davidson's 6th Annual Tattoo, Burnout, & Bikini Contest. The big money goes home with the winner of the bikini contest ($1,000), who is also crowned Miss Republic. Best burnout, best tattoo and best tattoo artist get a not-so-shabby prize of $500. (The burnout winner also gets a free tire, since it's assumed participating will pretty much eat up the tire they have.) There's also food, live music and plenty of pretty Hooter Girls to chat with while you get a piercing or tattoo. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Republic Harley-Davidson, 12707 Southwest Freeway. For information, call 281-295-1000 or visit www.republichd.com. Free.
Sat., July 18, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 2009
