[CONTEST UPDATE] Skull Tattoo Results!

Katrina in North Carolina got her tattoo! To recap Katrina asked Skull-A-Day readers to submit skull tattoo ideas for her and she would choose the winning one to get as an actual tattoo! The winner was Tim Phelps at Eternal Expressions Tattoo in Rome, Georgia and he and all of the participants are now being sent prizes from Katrina for their efforts!

As far as getting the tattoo done Katrina says, "Holy crap it hurt, it's in a different spot but my gosh I love it! Christy at Blue Flame Tattoo in Raleigh did some fabulous shading and added a bit more to it for a fuller look."...




I'm happy that Skull-A-Day has made such a permanent impression on Katrina! Got a contest suggestion of your own? Why not share in a comment below...

F'ing sweet! Great job to the artist who inked you also. Who was it and where do they work?

That's Christy at Blue Flame Tattoo in Raleigh, NC. She is awesome, and I am so glad to see her work shown here! She did a half-sleeve for me this summer that is incredible. She's a terrific artist and a nice person to boot.

Christy is a real sweetheart and fabulous artist. She knew exactly how to enhance the design.

It turned out so beautifully. And yes, that is a tender spot, I know from experience, but it's worth the pain!
