Since I'm new to the tattoo world I was a bit afraid to try, and since I'm a bit picky too I thought I would just pay for something that wouldn't meet my expectations. I couldn't be more wrong! The community is totally awesome! I will definitely recommend Tattoodo and I'll definitely get more from them again in the future!

Exactly what I wanted and better!

Within days some superb entries came in and I interacted with Artists on their thoughts and ideas. The final winner of my contest was an amazing design that was really 'me' and unlike anything I'd seen before. I'd booked in with a studio for the ink before I'd even had the high res design through!

Like receiving presents all month

I went in with minimal expectations to explore a tattoo idea. I left torn between a number of exceptional artists and tattoo designs. Overall I'll be showing up to my appointment much more confident towards the artwork I will wear the rest of my life.
