A challenge from Redbubble

Arguably a tattoo is the ultimate way to demonstrate our love for our Moms, but ironically many Moms freak at the thought of their kids getting inked. Luckily we've come up with a genius solution. For this challenge, we want you to create a tattoo design that would impress even your dear old Mother. And just to keep her extra sweet, we’d like you to submit your design on an iPhone case or tee - a less painful and way more Mom-pleasing way to show off your finest work.

Your tattoo design should be super cool - you won't need to wear it permanently, but your design should be something awesome enough to have inked. Not only will you make your Mom proud, you might just bag yourself some rather excellent prizes.

Excellent Prizes:

1st place: $1000 cash prize, 25 temporary tattoos of your design, and your winning design printed on a tshirt/hoodie style and size of your choice

2nd place: $500 cash prize, 25 temporary tattoos of your design, and your winning design printed on a tshirt/hoodie style and size of your choice

3rd place: $100 cash prize, 25 temporary tattoos of your design, and your winning design printed on a tshirt/hoodie style and size of your choice

To enter, first upload your work to Redbubble then log in to the challenge with your Facebook or Strutta account to add your entry. Entries are limited to two per person and should be design or illustration based. We're not looking for a photo of your tattoos (as lovely as they may be). See our challenge requirements for more.

After the submission period is over, Redbubble will select finalists based on the quality, artistic merit, and uniqueness of the designs, after which the public will have a chance to vote. Check back on this site on May 30th to vote for your favorites. Voting will be open until June 5.
