Marc Pinto

Marc Pinto

Founder and Owner Primitive Tattoo

TOPIC: ‘How to Become the Change You Want to See in the World’ 

Marc will reveal how to create opportunities out of what feels like the greatest failures & how to attract the best team and allow them to work to their purpose and passion while staying true to your own.


Marc Pinto is the founder of ‘Primitive’, an international brand representing three different businesses: Tribal Art, Tattoo and Luxury Jewellery.

He is an entrepreneur with more than two decades of experience in the tattoo and piercing industry, pioneering innovator of fine cautery branding, practitioner of traditional hand (Tebori) Japanese tattooing techniques, collector and dealer of fine Oceanic, Indonesian and Aboriginal art and objects, accredited gemologist (A.I.G.S) and accomplished traveler from the age of two.


Marc is a proud Eurasian of British, Portuguese and Indonesian Chinese heritage. He has always been a lover of culture and an avid collector of tribal art, an interest cultivated from the stories passed to him by his grandfather from Sabah, North Borneo.

After his grandfather passed, he felt the need to research his paternal ancestry and this sparked a keen interest to learn about the craft, culture and rituals of the people of Borneo. He has since contributed to numerous community projects to revive traditional skills and pass these on to the next generation of young villagers. With the support of the Business Global Lifestyle Club, he also partnered with an expert in permaculture and organic food to promote sustainable food cultivation in East Kalimantan, Borneo.

Marc is a passionate investor in business and real estate development in Perth, Bali and Singapore. He is always looking for the next fun adventure or opportunity to partner with like-minded entrepreneurs or businesses in micro-financing, hospitality and other areas to make purposeful impacts locally and globally.

Since 2010 she has run her own firm, Profile Media where she employs former results-driven journalists.  Her clients are carefully selected for their shared values and a mission to change the world for the better.

Sue’s desire to make a positive difference has led to the creation of the Good News Movement, which is a platform to share positive content and demonstrate to the media that there is an audience for good news.


The Good News Movement is aimed at changing the way news is reported so there is more positivity. The fundamental principle is we create the world we live in by the thoughts we think.  Providing a source of positive information is becoming increasingly important during this era of ‘peak negativity’.
