This week for the Indie Ink Writing Challenge, I got a really interesting prompt, and I decided to do something a little different with it this time.

My prompt came from Brad MacDonald, who wrote:

The tattoo means I always get their services for free.

I have a really good idea of what I want to do, and it involves some sci-fi/fantasy writing. But I would love to feature a picture of a real tattoo. I don’t have any tattoos myself, but I know there are some really excellent tattoo artists out there.

So, I’m putting a call out to anyone on the interwebs: if you have a tattoo that you love, or if you are a tattoo artist or graphic artist or just have some really awesome doodles for a cool tattoo, send them my way! I’ll feature my favorite tattoo in my story (which I will post this Thursday).

Unfortunately this contest does not involve money; but if you win, you will get some exposure, internet promotion, and my undying love.

UPDATE: I’ve closed submissions and am now furiously typing out my story so I can get it in before tonight’s deadline!

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Read the story that was inspired by the submitted tattoos!

    I don’t have a tattoo of my own, but I’m tentatively planning one for my 25th birthday, of an eighth note with a mobius strip as the bottom circle, and two snakes intertwining up the staff (like the medical thingy). Perhaps a rainbow flag for the flag of the eighth note, but that might be a little overboard. I just want to capture my interests in music, mathematics, and medicine.
