Festival Tattoos at Basscoast 10

Basscoast Project is an independent music and arts festival near Vancouver, Canada. For those in the know, the weekend promises  international electronic acts, immersive environments and plenty of babes (of all genders). Art is everywhere: in the forest, on the stages and in the crowd. My favorite pieces are often on skin.

Tattoo by Pablo from Mission Tattoo Parlor. Some babes have too many to choose from.

Sleeve tattoo by Drewski from Ghost Ship Tattoo.

Tattoo by Brody Polinski from Universe Studio.

Tattoo by Michelle a.k.a. Awful Toad. Ever seen a Kamoshika?!

Tattoo by Cody Walsh in Victoria, BC. Big, bold and oldschool – just how Matt likes it.

Left tattoo (kooky tiger) by Apro-Lee from South Korea. Nick’s got two, actually – maybe cause he’s kooky.

On her lovely sister, sleeve tattoo by Nina (Seabearrrr) from Third Eye Tattoo Parlour.

Tattoo by Dave “Pepe” Petko from Black Ohm Tattoo. Dave also builds art installations and stages for Basscoast.

“I’ve diven” sleeve by Kylie from Sacred Heart Tattoo. 

Back tattooed by Don Petersen and left sleeve tattooed by Aaron Brown. Both from New World Samurai in Canmore, AB

And many more below who’s origins I didn’t discover….
