Lee Woodruff, an exceptional M.C. for this event every year, sported some trendy tattoo jewelry created by the wife of the doctor who made the plate for her husband Bob's skull. Expect to see the awesome gold and silver body art sold at next year's event.

While innovation has flourished under the free-market system, this does not mean that regulation and innovation are mutually exclusive.
