The Rites of Passage Festival is back for their 5th year. As always, they are bringing you a massive weekend long celebration of tattoos, art, music and culture. Hosted at one of Melbourne’s most iconic world heritage buildings, the majestic Carlton Gardens. The team at ROP are excited to present to you, the largest celebration of tattoo culture in the southern hemisphere. Sticking to their motto and bringing you even BIGGER and BETTER celebration, this year they will continue to grow as Australia’s best tattoo culture festival for all tattooists, patrons and the greater community. Rite of Passage prides itself on the celebration of creativity and connecting different individuals through art. And rightly so, as this year they celebrate the neo-traditional art-form of tattooing.
