Ink model makes her mark in competition
CHILDERS tattooist Grace Crossland feels she has represented all inked women by appearing in a tattoo bikini competition in Hervey Bay.
“The competition was for tattooed models,” she said.
“A lot of models who have got tattoos get discriminated against.
“The competition was promoting a positive image of tattooed women.”
Ms Crossland, who runs Savage Tattoos in Childers, said tattoos were now very fashionable.
She said customers at her tattoo parlour came from all walks of life.
“We get policemen, policewomen, teachers, politicians and grandparents,” she said.
Ms Crossland, who plans to add to her selection of tattoos, said placing third in Hervey Bay qualified her to compete in the Queensland finals on June 13 on the Sunshine Coast.
