Sorry dudes, but here's another opportunity that's only for the ladies, though we're sure you will gladly enjoy sitting this one out and watching the magic unfold.
That's right! United Ink, the center of the body art universe is also the home of many other forms of expression, from traditional visual arts to music and performance, including our Pole Dancing Contest, and you can get in on the action!
This sexy, naughty little competition will be hosted by the beautiful Heather Moss and Ashley Schrader, and is sponsored by Xpressions.
Now, if you're concerned about nudity, no fear, there is none allowed. This is about the art of pole dancing, not turning United Ink into The Spearmint Rhino or the Cheetah Lounge. And for you more daring types, please note that nudity will disqualify you, so it's hardly a winning strategy. It's all about sexy attitude, which we encourage you to bring in spades!
Beyond that, please note the following:
-Contestants must be over 18
-Contestants must be female
-All contestants must fill out our application and release form to participate.
There is a submission fee of $25. For more info on how to register early, go HERE to the United Ink Pole Dancing Contest Webpage. Participants may also register the day of the event next to the Xpressions booth in the Rebel Ink Lounge on Friday during the convention.
Please be aware that showtime is Friday, July 27th at 7:30pm, so only register if you know you're going to be there, and make sure you get your entry in before we start!
