Steps to Start Your Own Tattoo Design Contest

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

For a tattoo enthusiast, who wishes to have a custom tattoo design created especially for him, based on his/ her ideas and preferences, one option available is to start his or her own tattoo design contest. There are many tattoo related sites that allow people to get a tattoo design that matches their personality the best.

To begin with, one needs to find a website that offers these contests online. For this, start with short listing a few sites that you like. Then, go through the process of launching a tattoo design contest offered by all these short listed sites. Check the marketplace designs to get an idea of the kind of designs that the sites offer. Make sure that the process is smooth and the guidelines are clear. Also see that the site is trustworthy and after the contest is closed, payment is processed in time. Also, it is necessary to confirm the credibility of the site because, at times, you may have to extend the contest or close it altogether if the designs offered by the designers are not up to your liking and expectations.

Once you have read all the requirements and have decided to go ahead and start a contest, it is relatively easy to get going. The next step is to register with the site that you think suits your requirements the best. You need to sign up for an account, which should be free, and follow the site's steps for creating the contest. Once registered, you can start with adding the instructions for the designers who will participate in the contest. You must enter a title for your custom tattoo design so it can be referred to by name.

You should then describe your tattoo idea and explain the size, location, style, colors and text and any other pertinent information you feel is necessary for the designer to understand and interpret exactly what you're looking for. The more clear the instructions; greater will be the number of tattoo designers that participate in your contest.

You should also put in a short, two or three sentence summary description to explain your custom design tattoo idea and grab the designer's attention. Follow the directions the site has for setting up the contest and complete your entry.

These sites require you to put up minimum prize money to start any contest. For example; to launch a contest, you may have to pay a minimum of $35-$50 at least. Remember, you are looking for the best tattoo design and for that you should be ready to shell out some good amount of money as well. Also, you are required to provide feedback about the designs provided by tattoo designers on a regular basis and give them a star rating. This will allow you to get interactive with the participating designers and exchange ideas with them.

Once the contest starts, it's just a matter of monitoring it and conforming with the requirements of the site until you find the perfect custom design tattoo provided to you by one of the designers participating in the contest. You get your tattoo design and stencil and the artist gets the prize money.
