The annual Rites of Passage Tattoo Festival is returning to Melbourne for a massive weekend of tattoos, art and entertainment. 

The Festival is bringing over 300 of the most talented local and international artists together under one roof at the Royal Exhibition Building, including renowned artists travelling from as far and wide as New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada and the US to showcase their work. 

Visitors will have the chance to meet their next (or first!) artist, watch them in action, research the latest trends and techniques, or even treat themselves to a tattoo on the spot! Artists will be selling prints and merch, and retailers will be in attendance selling streetwear, jewellery and more. 

Gage Road Brewing Co. will be keeping everyone hydrated with their selection of tasty craft beers, and the best food trucks in the city will be taking over the Museum Plaza. With a packed entertainment schedule including daily tattoo competitions, seminars, live art and live music, there's something for everyone. 

With so much to see and do, you definitely don't want to miss out on this massive celebration of art, diversity and tattoo culture. 
See you at the festival!
