Girls of Ink has been an important element of the Australian Tattoo Expo for as long as we can remember. However, the show team think it is time to turn it up a notch. We tour NATIONALLY, so for the first time EVER, in 2017 we will crown The Australian Tattoo Expo Girls of Ink National Winner!

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.

Round 1: Cosplay/Anime/Superhero

Round 2: Bikini Comp

Round 3: Formal Gown (to be crowned)

A panel of Three national judges will be present at the Main Stage. The winner of Girls of Ink will take home a $500 INSTANT CASH PRIZE and a bouquet of flowers and a spot in the finals for the National Girls of Ink on Sunday in Melbourne. Please note: Commitment is necessary to be available in Melbourne on Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3rd 2017.  Please consider these dates when applying. Both Runners Up and Third Runners Up will win $250 cash prize per state show.

Melbourne Girls of Ink will run as above. Same rounds and same prizes apply. The Winner in Melbourne will stay back for the National Girls of Ink Competition (flights not necessary).

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

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

The Girls of Ink National Winner of the Australian Tattoo Expo 2017 will TAKE HOME AN ADDITIONAL $500 CASH PRIZE, score a Feature Spread in Inked Magazine (Valued $950), a major sponsor prize pack and be interviewed by media publications (TBC).
