23rd Feb, 2nd March & 9th March
Have you ever had the chance to play a carnival game to select your tattoo?
Well now you can!
A 2018 Adelaide Fringe extravaganza event held over 3 Friday nights!
Each Friday night Black Diamond Tattoo will turn into a tattoo carnival.
We have 21 international, interstate and local tattoo artists over 3 separate nights & all you need to do to get tattooed is play a carnival game to pick your tattoo. Easy right?
- Spin the flashy wheel - play the flash shooter - or how about throw a dart at the big bang?
What flash design will you choose?
Of course you can play as many times as you like (just in case you don't like the first design)
Friday night festivities will include:
-Roaming street performers
-Food from La Popular Taqueria
-Beers from Pirate Life Brewing
This is an event not to be missed!

"In this body of work, Thomas Readett, explores psychological themes within the human condition, through a series of figurative & portraiture paintings. Readett uses these works as psychological documentations of his own past experiences, reflecting on both the good, and the bad. The title, Dark Light, stems directly from this. It expresses the conceptual basis which underpins this series, whilst also referring to the high contrasting and emotive painting technique that Readett has adopted from the old masters."
