When Jessika Power’s big brother Rhyce and 2018 Bachelor in Paradise star Eden Schwencke arrived at Pelicano, a nightclub in Sydney’s exclusive Double Bay, he didn’t expect what happened next.
According to the Daily Telegraph, bouncers rejected the construction worker-turned-aspiring model because of his serious collection of body art.
“Security didn't like the look of his neck and arm tattoos and he didn't have anything to cover them up - so he got denied by security,” a source told the publication of the incident, which happened on a recent Saturday night.
But Rhyce says being shown the door is nothing new. He told Daily Mail after the incident, “Being refused entry to nightclubs or being judged on my tattoos is something I've dealt with for a while, it's disappointing that it still happens.
“To me, it's my art and it's unfortunate others can't acknowledge that.”
