The biggest event of its kind, the Rites of Passage Tattoo Festival is returning to Sydney for a massive weekend of tattoos, art and entertainment. Proudly presented by Australian Tattoo Events, this years' festival is heading to ICC Sydney for the first time and is set to be bigger than ever before.

The 2018 line-up will feature over 250 artists from across Australia, as well as renowned international artists travelling from all over the world to take part in the festival. Visitors will have the chance to meet their next (or first!) artist, watch them in action and even treat themselves to a tattoo on the spot.

Chasing Ghosts frontman, Jimmy Kyle, will be taking on host duties, pulling together a packed entertainment schedule including daily talks on the history of tattooing, live art, plus fire and circus performers including world-famous contortionist, Shun Sugimoto, who will be bringing his jaw-dropping routine to the stage.

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.
