Under a burning Melbourne sun that seemed to scorch all in its path this weekend, I attended the Rites of Passage Festival at the Royal Exhibition Building.

From the get go, the event was beautifully organised and there was an incredibly vast bill of all sorts of entertainment, fashion, art, culture, characters and of course – a lot of tattoos!

Check out some of the photos from the event below.
