The Australian Industry Awards: Cast Your Votes!

This morning, I had a mini heart attack as I learned that I have been nominated for an award! Wow! The Australian Tattoo Industry Awards, which are held at the Rites of Passage convention, have announced their nominees and your humble host actually has a nomination. I am actually amazed that people on the other side of the world even know who I am, nevermind think I’m any good at what I do, so I would like to start this post by saying a huge thank you. I am humbled, and rather excited. I live in England, where we say “it’s not the winning, it’s the taking part!”, so I would like to thank everyone who has enabled me to take part. You all rule.

My ego aside, there are also some other great names who have a nomination that I think are pretty cool. Total Tattoo has a nomination for international magazine (which I hope you will all vote for!), as do Marisa Kakoulas, Travelin’ Mick and Tattoo Artist Magazine.
