Freelancing From Home - Think About Tattoo Design Contests

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 147

One way that tattoo designers can market their designs is by doing freelance work from home. Tattoo design contest is something that will allow both designers as well as tattoo enthusiasts to create and market their designs. One can even let other artists know about the contest so that they too can participate in the contest. Another way to market designs is by putting them up on the websites where the designer is a registered member. This way their work of art will be visible on internet to the whole world.

When looking at freelancing, there are some other areas that are great to get more visibility in the marketplace. For example; websites which provide the designers and the clients with a platform to find work/ projects to create tattoos and offer jobs to create tattoo designs respectively. These websites have numerous fields/ areas where designers can bid for jobs as freelance designers. Once a prospective client sponsors a job on any such site, it marks the beginning of a great contest with applicants from all over the world.

Also, one can take a look on the internet for other contests that offer freelance tattoo designers to participate in them. Many of these are open to new artists but, they do have some rules that designers new to the world of freelancing must be aware of, such as:

1. The designs must be completely original designs. There are millions of designs available, but the one submitted should in no way be close to one already created in somebody else's name.

2. The designs fall into various classes for size, color, placement, and categories that could include tribal designs, caricatures, fantasy, abstract, and many others, (so make sure the designs are entered in the correct classes).

3. All entries have to be submitted within a specified size for each class in terms of both width and height of the tattoo.

4. All entries have to be submitted by a specified date, and most contests do not make exceptions for late entries.

5. Edging for the entries are decided within the contest rules, some require smooth edging; others can be indeterminate or uneven. So, one should be careful about these details.

6. All tattoos that are entered must be created by the artists at the time of the contest and should be based on client's tattoo ideas and personal preferences.

7. Judges are not told about the designer of the tattoo, the designer, or the customer being tattooed. In most contests, the judges are just shown the tattoos in the different classes. Some may even require a photograph of the body part prior to the tattoo being considered as a potential winner in order to verify that the tattoo design was conceived and completed at the contest itself.

8. Generally there are age limits for the clients in the contest; but some require the participants to be at least 18 years of age or older.

A great way for tattoo designers that are freelancing from home is to start considering participating in tattoo design contests. It could be by either participating in various tattoo design contests, and another can be to host the contests and display your portfolio so that the artists and participants in the contest can also see your designs for future use.
