The Two Dollar Tattoo Project is not promoting Tattoos that Cost Two Dollars! If you care to read further do so, otherwise there it is in plain English!
So, I have received numerous complaints from the kind folks that have been submitting to this project regarding inquiries of the general public getting $2 tattoos. It appears that there are rumors running rampant on the internet that you can get a tattoo for only $2. This is not the case and we will (for probably the third time on this blog) set the record strait again!
The Two Dollar Tattoo Project is meant for industry professionals not the general public. The project was launched to be a fun game of comradery to challenge working professionals in the tattoo industry. If the artist so chooses as a professional courtesy to only charge $2 to partake in the original spirit of this project it is only by their choice not yours. If you are not a Tattoo Industry Professional you should not just expect to be invited to participate. Asking you to work for a minimum of an hour at your job for $2 dollars by labor standards in Canada would be illegal and down right un-ethical why demand that they do this for you?
I realize for a lot of people reading the one page of rules for the project meant for Industry professionals may be a little much but its written in plain text and can be read over by clicking here.
That said I have personally been very busy and have not had a chance to post the large backlog of images I have received. Today and tomorrow will be spent with me catching up. My appologies to those who have not seen their submissions up on the site as of yet. I have them and they will be up very soon.
