FAQ Tattoo Contest

During the event, members of the staff will visit each tattoo stand confirming participation in any of the categories

Regardless of the style you use in your tattoo, you can freely choose the category in which you want to participate as long as it falls within the category, remember that part of the winner's evaluation is to identify how related your tattoo is to the selected category.

It can happen that a tattoo or character appears both in movies and in manga or anime, but the style that you are going to use and the interpretation that you are going to make must be strongly related to the category to participate. For example, if you want to tattoo a superhero and you want to participate in the ANIME or CARTOON category, your tattoo and execution must be linked to the aesthetics of the character in the selected anime cartoon, on the other hand, if you want to participate in a movie, it must be related your character directly with the actor or CGI who played or was used to play that character.

Superheroes or Villains fall into various categories, but it will depend on which version of this you want to capture in the tattoo, if it is oriented to a live action movie, if it is oriented to a movie or animated series or if it is oriented to a particular comic.

There is no size limit to be able to participate in any category, but you must consider that your tattoo must be completed at the time of participating, otherwise this will harm your score on the jury evaluation form.

Of course!
Collaborative tattoos are usually an interesting mix of styles and the results are usually impressive, however you should consider that to participate you must choose a single category and the award must be shared by the artists involved in the collaboration.

During the days after the event, the cash prize will be awarded to the different winners of the different categories. The organization will inform each of them the conditions of the award ceremony.

Participating in more than one category with the same tattoo is not allowed.

It is allowed to participate in different categories as long as the tattoos are different and are made in the same event as a whole.

It is not allowed to participate in a category with a tattoo that has already been previously advanced.

No, each participating tattoo must be done in its entirety on the day that corresponds to its category. This is to promote the equality of condition of all artists.
Part of the jury's evaluation is to determine the artist's ability to manage their work time and the criteria they have in selecting a piece according to their abilities.

No. In this edition of COMIC INK there will be no competition or participation of tattoos that have already healed.

The administration of the clients is a responsibility of each artist, not of the production of the event. You can change the tattoo or canvas as long as you have not made the registration, if you signed up for a certain category with your canvas, it will no longer be possible to make changes.
This measure is due to the fact that making changes at the last minute can generate confusion and lack of coordination that can result in unwanted delays in the correct functioning of the dynamics of the event and the contest.
