Various times all weekend Tattoo Competitions will be held. If you would like to enter your tattoo in one of the many competition categories, simply sign up at the main stage prior to the competitions starting. It is $15 per tattoo entry. You can register at Main Stage. Registration for each tattoo is $15 which is non refundable & Tattoo of the Day is free if you are an attending Hell City artist! If you are entering your tattoo, it must be fully healed or it will not be judged, see rules below. Hell City uses state of the art computer judging programs that judge different artistic aspects of tattoos. Hell City along with Solin Systems has developed this web based service for judging competitions accurately and fairly! This software has been such a succes that various tattoo conventions and other trade shows are using this system for their own competitions of all types, from tattoos to cars, to toys, to any style of competition that needs to be judged. Hell City helped pioneer this state of the art technology to judge tattoo competitions this way. A panel of carefully selected tattoo artists will judge the tattoo competition. The competing tattoos will be displayed to the attendees on our giant big screens and will be announced over a P.A. system to keep attendees informed on details of the competing pieces. Live results will also be published over RSS. All competitions are as impartial as humanly possible. No sore losers please!! Winner will receive custom Hell City Awards, given by Official Pinup Girls, as well as taking their place on the "podium of death" for magazine and website photography.
