Betanarratives Presents: Skin Deep

This event has already finished!

For the launch of Betanarratives (, writer Brendan McDougall is gettin’ inked with your help. Use the hashtag #tweetoo to suggest a design based on a famous literary quote to forever immortalise on the world’s most sacred and permanent textual space: the human body. On the night, tune in to watch the spectacle, and be one of the first to watch/read/listen to the first Betanarratives piece, profiling Cindy Ray/Bev Robinson (Australia’s first ever female tattoo artist) and John Kenney (walking work-of-art). See you there – digitally or physically – with cake or tattoo gun in hand!
