Blood, tat­too artists among lineup

South Waikato News - - RURAL DELIVERY -

Blood artists, Crusty De­mons and body painters will join some of the world’s best tat­too artists at the In­ter­na­tional Tat­too and Arts Expo, in Hamil­ton next month.

Now in its third year, the expo con­tin­ues to outdo it­self; this year features an even more im­pres­sive lineup of artists, mu­si­cians and stunt rid­ers at Claude­lands Event Cen­tre, Hamil­ton, on Fe­bru­ary 23-24.

Top of the must-see list for many will be Dr Rev, a huge hit from the 2012 expo, and in­fa­mous for cre­at­ing in­cred­i­bly in­tri­cate art­works painted in his own blood. He will be joined by former Crusty De­mons and Nitro Cir­cus rider, Luke Smith, who made head­lines around the world by re­cov­er­ing from a brain in­jury that left him in a lifethreat­en­ing coma three years ago.

And to top off the two-wheeled ac­tion, Kiwi Jed Mil­ton, the first man in the world to pull a triple back flip on his BMX, will per­form live de­mos.

LA Ink re­al­ity TV star and tat­tooist Amy Ni­co­letto will be on hand along with film crew, as will Kiwi world cham­pion body painter Yolanda Ber­tram.

As well as tat­too artists from around the world, the very best Kiwi tat­too tal­ent will also be present.
