KingCap22 got their new tattoo by running a design contest:
Surreal / abstract story in a shoulder / half sleeve tattoo
Check out KingCap22's Tattoo contest…
Tattoo for personal use
What's your vision?
I am looking for a design that can help articulate my life story from shoulder bleeding into elbow (half sleeve). I want it to be quite SUREAL, DREAMLIKE, ABSTRACT vs a very literal expression. I am looking for a surreal or abstract design but with symbology that depicts elements of my story; I have recently retired early after 25 years in corporate jobs, and worked my ass off to do so. I now want a tattoo that helps to articulate my story but in quite an abstract manner; - liberate time (abstract or surreal clock) - space / astronaut concept - Bull / bear (as in stock market bull) - tropical escape, island life - blockchain pattern to fill - concepts of escape / return to family - subtle (small) text “People will say it was luck” Not all elements need to be included if it’s getting cluttered ☺️ This is just to provide ideas for the symbology which could be picked up to tell the story. In essence I have liberated myself from corporate life through stock trading and am moving to the tropics to allow me to spend TIME with my family instead of a slave to the system. I want to celebrate this with an epic tattoo! I don’t want the tattoo to be too dense / dark and thick with colour, but I like surrealism / abstract designs that use geometric pattern (blockchain) to fill or bleed out the tattoo. I’m thinking shoulder down to just below the elbow (could be full sleeve if it works better) but can adapt placement to the design - but don’t want it to be too over the top. I’ve attached some reference pictures I think could be helpful, but running a design competition to source an inspired artist and style who can bring the vision to life
The attached images are a collection of STYLES, SYMBOLS and VISUAL STYLES which I think are directionally what I want OR symbology relevant to my story which could be incorporated into the design. The geometric photo is just an example of the FILL but I would want this using a blockchain or tech based pattern.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Tattoo starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their tattoo.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
KingCap22 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
