Each state still holds a Girls of Ink Winner, Runners Up and Third Runners Up but the Winner is invited to come to the final to compete for the National Girls of Ink title (return flights inclusive).

Entries are open to anyone with tattoos, modelling experience not required. Everyone deserves a chance to step out of their comfort zone.

Each state show will have three rounds on the catwalk of the Main Stage.

A panel of Three national judges will be present at the Main Stage. The winner of Girls of Ink will take home $500 INSTANT CASH PRIZE, a bouquet of flowers and return flights to the Melbourne Australian Tattoo Expo for Girls of Ink (transport car included). Please note: Commitment is necessary to be available in Melbourne on Sunday, December 3rd 2017.  Please consider this date when apply to enter.

In the evening of the Melbourne Tattoo Expo will be the crowning of the FIRST Girls of Ink National Winner 2017.

The 3 finalists from Sydney, Perth and Melbourne will be on the Main Stage for two rounds – Custom lingerie to accentuate tattoos and Red Dress Attire (because we all deserved to be crowned making a bold statement in Red).
