Contest Categories

  • Color Large (Any style of tattoo as long as it has bright vibrant coloring)
  • Realistic (Must be a representation of something)
  • Blackwork (The term ‘blackwork’ covers everything from ancient sacred geometry to modern abstract ornamental designs. Mainly it includes bold work of body art rendered in solid planes of black ink.)
  • Dots (Creation of a pattern with varying solidity or shading using small dots or specks,
    rather then using lines or solid areas. Dots must cover the majority of the Tattoo)
  • Illustrative Blackwork (These tattoos make exceptional use of linework to create images that may have very well been drawn straight onto paper. Popular takes on Illustrative Tattoos can include floral, fine line, and blackwork – which is a style that only uses black ink.)
  • Old School (Western or traditional American tattoo style featuring bold black outlines and a limited color palette.)
  • Neo Traditional (a Neo-traditional tattoo features bold lines, an illustrative look, highly saturated modern colors, and a feeling of dimension without being exaggerated or 3D.)
