Body art for a good cause

Attila Uto from South Lismore (pictured) is looking forward to this Saturday, March 31, when he will be stutting his stuff in a g-string, having shaved his entire body as part of the 11th annual Lismore Charity Tattoo Show. The event is organised by Pete Davidson, owner of Creative Tattoo Art along with his wife Nola and daughter Angie (pictured on the front page). Over the years the event has raised $35,000 for the Lismore Soup Kitchen.

Attila said in the last three years he had also gotten into piercings and now had a total of 16.

I think carefully about where Im going to put the next one, he said. The tattoos and piercings actually suit me. For some reason I can pull it off. I actually meet more people now that Im heavily tattooed, than before. And they approach me.

He said because the event was a charity show there was a nice, family atmosphere and members of the general public were welcome to come along.

This is the first year Attila will be sporting a g-string, which is see-through at the back to enable his new buttock tattoos to be seen. A full body shave will also be in order, to show his tattoos off to their best effect.

Apparently this year theres going to be a major tattoo magazine there taking photos, he said.

Lismore Charity Tattoo Show, Saturday March 31 from 2-6pm. Entry costs $10 and all proceeds go to the Lismore Soup Kitchen.
