An array of international tattoo artists joins some of Australia’s best talent, including Mick Squires from Behind Closed Doors Studio, Jamin Swaneveld from Last Frontier Tattoos, Terence Tait from Ink Ur Bod, and Teneile Napoli from Garage Ink.

Kelley has worked with some of the top fashion photographers and brings her expertise along as a VIP judge of the pin-up pageant. Other entertainment includes tattoo contests, a burlesque show and live music. Plus, there will be a number of alternative stalls to explore and a kids' corner with face painting, games and temporary tattoos.
