Tatts on show to raise cash

THERE was eye-catching ink on display at the Wallabys rugby league field during the Ink 'n' Chrome Car, Bike and Tattoo Show on Saturday.

Event official Bill Wuertz said it had been a fantastic day with about 700 people through the gates to look at 50 bikes, 15 cars and hundreds of tattoos.

"It has been well supported by the local community," Mr Wuertz said.

As well as plenty of Gladstone residents, Mr Wuertz said people travelled to show off their bikes, cars and tattoos.

Megs Anderson was there to try her luck at winning the best colour, best chest, best arm and best overall categories for tattoos.

The 31-year-old said she loved tattoos for the art, not that she chose hers.

"I gave my skin to them and that's what they came up with," Ms Anderson said.

Proceeds from the day were donated to meningococcal survivor Zaac Dow and Shontae Dennis who has Rett Syndrome.

Mr Wuertz acknowledged sponsors, supporters, volunteers and the Wallabys club.
