You're not here because you're not logged in
I've changed the amount of time before a submission expires. Hopefully that will help out some more. Also, note to the Voters: Wtf guys. I've been seeing a LOT of decent submissions being declined.  Knock it off. This isn't an elitist group but I also understand wanting good work in here. Use good judgement. If I get more notes about people just declining EVERYTHING I'll remove you from the group.
Breakdown of our folders + looking for someone to help moderate.

First, Folder breakdown -
We've been getting a TON of wrong folder submissions. It's not hard, we don't have THAT many to choose from.

FLASH ART - TATTOO DESIGNS. Something that is ready to be applied to the skin.
MODEL CITIZENS - Models with tattoos. End of story. Also, they must be at least SOMEWHAT visible!
WORKS IN PROGRESS - Unfinished tattoos. NO SKETCHES.
TATTY TINGS - Really anything tattoo related, ie shirts, paintings,ect

Second - Halp.
Interested in helping keep the group in order? Let me know. It will involve correcting submissions to correct folders, voting, and anything else that involves helping run the group. It's starting to get to be a little too much for just one person.

A tattoo related DA News Article you all should read real quick!


There are a TON of submissions to this group that are in the wrong categories. Take a look at this news article by annajordanart that explains what goes where when dealing with tattoos and tattoo designs :)
Hello everyone! I have made another new group called, Almost-Permanent. Mainly because a lot of times that the tattoo groups I'm in, get sharpie/pen/ect tattoos submitted to our groups. So - here is a place to submit all your fake tattoos :) Feel free to join/spread the word and submit your works!

Hi I am looking to add to improve an old Maori tattoo I had on my forearm years ago would like to include aspects relating to wildlife and the tree of life, open to all ideas and am a fan of detail as you can see this is what my original tattoo is currently lacking! Would love to get an insight into the design process and community too as I am a big fan and as a documentary filmmaker also have ideas about a short film I would like to make. Please get in touch!

Hey, I don't know if my art might fit in this group or not. However, I was just wondering if anyone is interested in this series of watercolour×digital paintings I make about different tattoos that comes to life in general.
I made this woman having her flower tattoos come to life…
And I have another one of fish coming to life and lots more to come.
Just wondering :)
