Tattoo of the Month starting November 1st

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

Okay, so it took a while, but I'm going to try to get this off the ground come November 1.

I'm thinking themes, like several of you suggested (Examples: Japanese back piece, daggers, girl heads, fine line b&g etc). How about "fillers" for our first contest. That sound cool? 

The following is my suggestion for new rules. Please speak up if you have any suggestions for changes.

The tattoo picture that gets posted in this thread for "Month/Year" will be submitted for polling of Last Sparrow's Best "(INSERT THEME)" tattoo. This is all in good spirit and fun of course. The submission process opens on the first of the month and ends on the 20th of the month. After that there will be an open poll for one week, which will close on the 27th, and the tattoo with the most votes wins.

Your tattoo picture must be posted in this thread (both tattooers and tattoo customers can win) in order to qualify.

  • Include with your photo/post...tattoo artist name & tattoo shop.
  • You MUST be the one who has the tattoo or did the tattoo.
  • It MUST be a finished tattoo
  • It must fit the theme of the contest (obviously)

Sounds cool, but can you define "fillers" please....

Tattoos made for filling small open spaces in between larger tattoos. I'd say smaller than palm size, and usually made in less than a couple hours.

I'm suprised that the contest is coming back at this point as it seems like activity is down quite a bit and the thread activity that is attended to has some real dumbass content - anyway - i'd say no on a theme like fillers - too hard to decide what filler is - to me filler is when really heavily tattooed folks get small tattoos to 'fill' the gaps - how many heavily tattooed people are still on this board - just my two cents

Noted. Lets try to start with a broader category, and see how submissions turn out.

This works for me because I'm getting a tattoo on Oct. 30th. I'm getting something to "fill" a sad gap between other tattoos on leg but I'm not sure it will be small enough to be called a filler by the definition above. It will be close I suppose. Either way, the timing of this is perfect and I think (in general) that having submission dates and then voting dates is a great idea.

@Dan i wish this place was more than it is but it aint - lets be honest - now - if you remember the last month of the contest - there were only 4 tattoos entered - no categories mind you - and that was the reason that it was cancelled - because even then - when we had way more solid contributions and participation than we do now - even then - there wasnt enough interest in the contest to actually warrant continuing it - jus sayin

Panthers ;) Sure. I'm down. 

 

I always liked the contest and had missed it. Cool idea. "Fillers", I agree, may be too open to interpretation and might make for a convoluted comeback for the contest.

Girl heads, skulls, reapers, daggers/swords could all be really cool. Would also be neat to see a weird stuff contest. 

All good calls. I hadn't really thought about reapers. I also like "weird stuff" and would be curious with almost something that open.

I'm not religious at all, but I think Jesus heads or Virgin Marys could be cool.

I'd love to see the namakubi tattoos people.

Hand tattoos (on hands, not of hands).

Rose morphs.

Eagles.

Rock of ages.

Mandalas / geometry

    • Hello! I am about to have my hand tatooed and would like to have it go on "top" on my current sleeve. I was thinking past the red flames that you see. I am wondering if it means my new tattoos needs to be solid black to go on top for it to cover up? Because I wouldn't want the flames to stick out of nowhere or have the lines from the bricks show up in the new one. It's my first time getting a tattoo on top of another one, so I just want to make sure! Thanks so much for your time!   Pictures
    • I got this one last week from Lukas Speich at XXX Tattoo in Lucerne, Switzerland. I stole the idea from a story that Yoni Zilber retold from Bill Salmon, in a Podcast... there was a dude who saw someone's tattoo and said, "That's a pretty cool tattoo. I got a tattoo also, but mine's a little cooler." He showed the tattoo and there it was... a little cooler. 😉😉  I chose the classic Igloo Playmate, but the wording was too small to tattoo. So, I asked Lukas to add a little Swiss flag and he went with a red cross. It's kinda funny to me, as it now looks like it could be used to transport an organ donation.
    • Yeah, it's crazy! Hope that you are healing better, too. My knee is crazy jacked up. I am sure that I will need a touch up eventually!
