For each category the minimum number of participants for a contest to proceed is 10. For the competition Best-of-Show, all three Best-of-Days must be present in person. The jury will look at the tattoos WITHOUT knowing the name of the artist who made the tattoo. Therefore, it is very important not to tell the name of the artist at the registration. The tattoo will be judged on design, artwork, composition, placement, proportion and originality. Participating in a category costs 5,= euro.

We’d love to see you in Amsterdam!
