Any individual may enter as many categories as they have appropriate tattoos, however, a tattoo may only be entered in any one (1) category.

A panel of judges will review all tattoos and assign a score based on a pre-determined point system. All points are entered into a computer and a total score for each tattoo is calculated. First, Second and Third place are determined by the three (3) highest scores in each category.

Winners in ALL LIVE CONTEST CATEGORIES will be announced shortly after each contest session.

To be eligible for entry, all tattoos must be completed on the convention floor by an artist registered at the convention. Only one (1) winner will be determined. The winning enthusiast receives $100 cash and a hand crafted plaque from Sideshow Signs. The artist who applied the tattoo receives a custom sculpture from Goatus Art, ink from Fusion Ink, $200 Critical Tattoo Supply Gift Certificate, a set of Ron Meyers Greywash Ink and merchandise from Tony Ciavarro's SlowDown Clothing.
