You know that lingering disappointment you’re still feeling after not winning the #MeganDreamTattoo competition a few months back? Sigh. Sadly there can be only one winner, but the good news is that we’ve got a brand new contest for you, and regardless of if you win or not, you get a brand new tattoo.
Yup, you heard right. We’re giving away free tattoos – there’s just a bit of a catch. The winner of our new Facebook Live game show, Mystery Tattoo, will receive a completely free tattoo from Ami James valued at $1,000. The loser — and trust us, there will be losers — will receive a free tattoo *drumroll* that dumb luck or the influence of our live audience will decide upon.
Airing every Friday at 10:00 pm EST on the official Tattoodo Facebook page, Ami James and fellow artists Federico Ferroni, Darren Brass, and Jose Cordova will be permanently marking the bodies of our willing contestants in this batshit gameshow format. Consisting of three rounds, four lucky contestants will compete for a chance to be tattooed by Ami.
Each episode starts with a spin of the "Wheel of Misfortune" resulting in a contestant being relegated to our very own tattoo "glory hole," where the viewers decide his or her fate. While Federico prepares an arm or a leg to be permanently marked in spectacular fashion, it's our live audience voting in real-time that determines the design.
Honestly, it's kind of fucking insane.
Each subsequent round pits our contestants against each other in a mix of skill, dumb luck, and happenstance. From a game of darts, to a drawing contest, to a game of tattoo shop-style beer pong, each week brings something new to the table. The last man (or woman) standing leaves the room unscathed with an appointment for the tattoo of their choosing from world-renowned artist Ami James — a 25% chance of getting a dream tattoo.
So if you’re in the Miami area, and are absolutely dying to win a chance to be tattooed by Ami James, look no further. If you’re not in the 305, but are really keen on live television as well as making other people squirm, boy have you come to the right place. Either way, be sure to tune in every Friday at 10:00 pm EST to see what this week’s Mystery Tattoo has in store.
You never know, one day it just might be you on that screen realizing you’ve just won a free tattoo by Ami James.
