RIIES OF PASSAGE TATTOO, ARTS AND MUSIC FESTIVAL, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
28th-30th January 2011
Claire and her band of merry helpers will be hosting a totally new tattoo convention for next year.
Rites of Passage is a 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 taltoo, 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 tfibal history and take conscious, informed steps forward towards positive change.
Ihe Rites of Passage Festival celebrates the natural environment by showing, through positive example, just how possible it is to live in harmony with our surroundings. We're aiming to be as eco-friendly as possible, showcasing everything from organic locally grown produce to eco-friendly tattoo supplies It's our firm belief that it's possible to tread lightly without missing out on any of the indulgences we've come to depend on in our lives - and it's for this reason that 100% of the profits made from the festival will go towards buying agricultural land, which will be replanted with native rainforest, www.ritesofpassagefestival.com
