SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – In a glamorous evening of glitz and glamour, renowned cosmetic tattooist Katherine McCann of Brisbane emerged as a shining star at the 2023 Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA). The prestigious event took place on Sunday, August 27th, at The Star, Sydney, where nearly 700 luminaries from the beauty and aesthetics industry gathered to celebrate excellence.
Led by Founder and CEO Linda Woodhead, Mocha Group has championed the best in beauty around the country since 2012 through this trusted award platform. The ABIAs provide a benchmark of excellence across both specialist and individual categories in beauty and make-up, with a wide variety of categories that highlight the leaders and experts in their fields and encompass the industry’s diversity.
Inka on Oxford & FaceBox Cosmetic and Medical Tattoo are Katherine’s Gold Coast & Brisbane-based clinics where she specializes in correcting complex botched cosmetic procedures. With her unparalleled expertise, Katherine has guided countless individuals on their journey to rectify previous facial tattoo mishaps. Nevertheless, it is her groundbreaking work in medical tattooing that truly stands out. Through her camouflage and concealment tattoo techniques, she has transformed lives, enabling those deeply affected by circumstances such as domestic violence, human trafficking, war, accidents, and injuries to regain their confidence by covering and concealing scars and physical impacts with astonishing realism.
A Testament to Excellence: Operating by appointment only, Katherine offers clients a uniquely immersive experience that combines the physical and sensory elements of tattooing. Often referred to as the “tech’s tech,” she serves as a mentor and advisor to industry professionals, solidifying her reputation as a pillar of professionalism. Katherine is an industry contributor and a driving force in elevating education for emerging artists and is looking forward to the launch of her dedicated training facility Inka Academy Australia in Bulimba in November 2023.

Our 2023 winners are now internationally recognized as innovators in technique, trends, and service. The Gold Coast community should take immense pride in this achievement!”
