Implying tattooed women or people interested in them are freaks is a very negative stereotype.

I am sure this will be a lovely, fun event. I just think you could phrase things better in the way you promote it.

the point of this event is to redefine the word "freak"

I am a Freak Show performance artist. I come from a family of Carnies.

"Freak and Fabulous" is taking the word back and being proud to be different. It's only negative if you give negative power.
This is my way of giving positive power to a subculture.

thank you for your interest.
