Rites of Passage

Rites of Passage Tattoo Convention and Arts Festival is a three day event, held from Friday April 27 to Sunday April 29, at the Royal Exhibition Building in the Carlton Gardens. The festival aims to take you on a journey to lands forgotten, and cultures undiscovered to re-explore the real reason why people get tattooed in both the modern and ancient world. Appearing at the festival will be over 200 tattoo artists from around the world, including Shige (Japan), Jeff Gogue (USA), Nick Baxter (USA), and Victor Portugal (Poland), plus a bevvy of local Australian artists. We have two double passes to give away. Tell us what your next tattoo plans are for your chance to win a ticket.
