Rites of Passage – Melbourne

Happy Friday! I have something a little different for you this week…
I was back at the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne last weekend for another amazing show – this time I went to experience¬†Rites of Passage, a tattoo convention and arts expo ‘that celebrates creativity as a means to connect.’

I had never heard of this exhibition before, but tattoos and the skill in creating them, have always really intrigued me – despite the fact that I have never dared to get one myself! There is such beauty and a huge amount of talent involved in tattoo design – not to mention a steady hand. It was so inspiring to see so many artists at work and the mind-blowing variety of colourfully inked people around the exhibition.
