Dunedin musician Kylie Price has started a social media campaign to open for Ed Sheeran on his New Zealand tour.

Kylie Price's campaign to open for Ed Sheeran has become a little more permanent.

Two friends of Price have shown their support for her bid to play for Sheeran by getting matching tattoos.

Stephanie Seyb and a friend who wished to remain anonymous, decided to get #KPforED inked on them to help Price get Sheeran's attention.

The Dunedin singer, who likes to think of herself as the female Sheeran, wants to be the support act for the singer's Dunedin shows.

Price said she had nothing to lose. "Instead of saying why I should [perform], it's more why shouldn't I? I'm right here, you don't have to worry about the cost of bringing someone," she added.

Although Seyb said she was not particularly close with Price, she still wanted to support the cause. 

"I'm not that close with her but it's all about supporting local artists and getting her name out there to try and open for Ed Sheeran," said Seyb.

Despite the fact it was Seyb's first tattoo, she said she had no regrets about it claiming it was just a starting point for more.

Although there had been no word on whether Price would be in the mix to perform with Sheeran, Seyb was hopeful.

"I feel like the more we push it with social media, we have more of a chance to get Frontier Touring to get on board," she said.

Both Price and Seyb were big fans of the British pop star and said they were amongst the first to buy tickets to his first Dunedin show. 

The company bringing Sheeran to New Zealand, Frontier Touring, declined to comment when asked if Price had a shot at opening for the pop star.
