The ball at the Opera in Graz is one of the most exclusive balls in Austria. The Opera in Graz was built in 1899. More than 2,500 people came to the event this year to enjoy an evening of glitz and glimmer. For Mario it was his first invitation to the ball and he enjoyed the evening with friends both new and old. His thoughts for the future are to bring light to the tattoo art and lifestyle in an event that is just now opening up to the mainstream.
