Rite Of Passage Tattoo And Arts Convention

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Rites of Passage is a brand new tattoo festival that celebrates creativity as a means to connect - not only with ourselves, but with one another, our various cultures, our ancestors and the Earth.

People have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. These permanent designs - sometimes plain, sometimes elaborate, always personal - have served as amulets, status symbols, declarations of love, signs of religious belief, adornments and even forms of punishment.

By celebrating the art of tattoo, music, visual art and environmental awareness, we're creating a dynamic, shared space where people from all walks of life can look back on our tribal history and take conscious, informed steps forward towards positive change.

The ROP crew are aiming to be as eco-friendly as possible, showcasing everything from organic locally grown produce to eco-friendly tattoo supplies. 100% of the profits made from the festival will go towards buying agricultural land, which will be replanted with native rainforest.

The team have handpicked the world's finest tattoo artists to showcase their work in the city of Melbourne, Australia. The Rites of Passage Festival is your opportunity to see world-class masters at work — and to experience it first-hand. With top-notch artists like; Sean Herman, Paolo Acuna, Trevor McStay, Jo Harrison, Nick Baxter, Rachie Brains and many, many others, you'd be mad to miss this show.
