Tattoo Show

The Community Art Show is looking for artists of all ages who work with any medium to submit work to the Tattoo Show. The Tattoo Show is offering artists the opportunity to share their work that could be turned into a tattoo. Think of crisp line art and one-of-a-kind compositions that would inspire the viewer to get that same tattoo. Two-dimensional works will be accepted. Literary artists may also submit poetry related to the theme or written word works for display. Written works must fit onto one displayable page. Show is open to artists of all ages or who presently reside in the state of Utah. Original works in any medium are eligible. REPRODUCTIONS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE. 

Work must have been completed within the past two years. Artists are limited to three entries. Maximum surface size is 60” x 60”. 

Entries must be ready to display. If the piece needs to be displayed in a hanging position, it must be mounted, matted and or framed, or otherwise ready to display in exhibition condition. Wire hanging system installed on hanging artwork is required.  Works submitted without a wire will not be accepted.

Works must be presented in a manner that is acceptable for public viewing of all ages. Works that may be offensive, derogatory, or pornographic will not be accepted.
