Joining the Group

If you're here, then it is ink that runs through your veins. It is the group's mission to showcase the best tattoos and designs found on DA and the most creative tattoo related photography and art.


All works must be submitted to the proper category. Artistic nudes are acceptable but the fine line between art and porn will be at the discretion of the admins.

Limit of 3 submissions per week.

FEATURED: I will deny any submissions to this catergory. Anything "featured" is by my choice and discretion.

FINISHED PIECES: This Is for finished INK ON SKIN pieces ONLY.

HAND DRAWN OR PAINTED DESIGNS: Pretty self explainatory. If you have created a design that is meant to be tattooed on skin in any traditional media, this is the correct folder.

DIGITAL DESIGNS: Same as above but for digitally created designs.

WORKS IN PROGRESS: Again, pretty self explainatory. If there is an unfinished tattoo on skin that you would like to submit, you are welcome to do so in this folder.

CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY: Submissions for this catergory MUST have tattoos or tattoo lifestyle the prominent focus of the image. "Artistic nudes" are welcome so long as it is tasteful and still follows the guidelines for the catergory.

TATTOOS IN ART: If tattoos have inspired you to draw, paint, or sculpt just about anything, then this is your folder. The tattoo inspiration must be at least somewhat obvious to the viewer. Whether it is a still life of equipment, a portrait of a tattooed person, or even a drunken turkey covered in tattoos, it belongs in this folder.

Either it was because I felt it didnt reflect the caliber of skill that this group aims for or, more commonly, it was submitted in the wrong folder.

This is happening more and more often and a lot of times it is with the same people. I have replied to these saying to resubmit into the same folder but I am no longer doing this. If you cannot figure out why your piece was denied then I welcome you to message me about it but dont abuse it or harrass me about it.
