Hot summer days mean skin is bared and what better time to hold a contest celebrating tattoos.

The Nelson Star is hosting an online contest called “Your Ink in Ours” where three local tattoo artists strut their stuff in hopes of winning bragging rights and editorial coverage in VURB.

“It’s a friendly competition that celebrates an art form that’s really gone mainstream,” says publisher Karen Bennett. “Especially in the Kootenays. There really are some great tattoos out there.”

Featured artists from Divine Alchemy, Cymatica Tattoo and Wolf’s Den all have a portfolio of their work for viewing on the Star website.

To view the artist’s portfolio of five images and to vote for your favourite go to nelsonstar.com. Click on contests in the top right hand corner and select tattoo contest.

You must be registered to vote and only one vote is accepted per day. The contest closes on August 16 and the tattoo artist with the most votes will be featured in the August 23 issue of VURB.

Voting is now open.
