Frequently Asked Questions

For a complete list of FAQ please visit our help page here: FAQs

What is a stencil and how is this provided to the customer?

  1. A stencil (also referred to as “line drawing”) is a simple outline drawing of the original tattoo design. This is a digital image delivered to the customer at the same time as the final design. Both the main design and stencil are uploaded to the design transfer page after a winner is selected. The customer simply prints out the design and stencil and takes them to their local tattoo shop.

Do I need to physically mail anything to the customers?

  • No. All the designs and stencils are sent electronically through our website.

Do I have to pay anything to participate in the custom tattoo design requests or the tattoo marketplace?

To submit a tattoo design to the marketplace please follow these steps:
  1. No. Our modest commissions are only taken when a sale is completed. We never charge artists to participate or be a member of the community.

How do artists get paid?

  1. All our payments are processed automatically via PayPal. Design requests are paid immediately after the design is accepted by the customer and marketplace commissions are paid monthly. Artists are required to have a valid PayPal account to receive payments. We are actively working on a second payment options for countries where PayPal is not accepted.

I live outside of the United States. Can I still participate?

  1. Over 50% of our artists reside outside of the United States. Our only requirement is that you must have a valid PayPal account to receive the payments. Some countries currently do not support PayPal.
