The Perth expo, like with most tattoo expos, had its fair share of entertainment. Pyrohex made the journey from London to thrill the crowd with their blend of pyro and fire performances throughout the weekend.

Ladies with a love of pin up style fashion, with and without tattoos entered the Stealth Pin Up Pageant. 

A wide array of classic cars and motorcycles were on display for all the rev heads.
