 How permanent is your love for Creativity?

The Loeries has a beautiful logo, a bird perched among a cluster of leaves, designed by Jenny Ehlers from King Kames RSVP. Now you can have this logo as a Tattoo, compliments of the Loeries. And the best part is that you will be given a Rockstar pass for Loeries Creative Week. The stuff of legends, very few have ever donned this coveted Rockstar wristband, which guarantees its wearer access to the most sought-after and exclusive VIP events.

To be considered worthy of a Rockstar Pass, the Loeries wants something in return. A mark of your allegiance. A symbol of just how much you love South Africa’s biggest and most influential festival of creativity. Something that will almost certainly make you the most famous you.

All you need to do is go to the Loeries Expo where Rob Turner Tattoos has a stand. Once you’ve registered and had your tattoo done, you will instantly become a Loeries Rockstar.

A Rockstar Pass gives the wearer exclusive access to all VIP functions, including:

  • Egg Films judges wrap on Thursday
  • Chairman’s Party on Friday
  • Design & Digital Party on Long Street on Saturday
  • Loeries VIP Lounge at Julep on Saturday
  • VIP access at both awards ceremonies (delegates must already have reserved seating)
  • VIP access at the Channel O Party at Shimmy Beach Club on Sunday.

One thing’s for sure – years from now, that tattoo will remind you of the best time of your life.
