I was asked back to cover the Rites of Passage Tattoo Festival again for Desert Highway and it’s always an event that I love going back to each year because there is something awesome about a space full with creative souls.
This year I had the entire day set aside to cover this festival (which actually spans three) and while that did mean I could pace myself and stop to enjoy some of it without my camera, I think that after about six hours and probably a dozen laps calling it a day wasn’t a bad thing.
There were a lot of very cool tattoos being done on the day and it was exciting to come back a couple of times to see the progress. I also managed to chat with some very talented artists, make some new friends and catch up with some familiar faces which is always awesome.
