Can I submit any content I find interesting?
Yes you can. Just make sure it’s relevant to body art or tattooing and that you give proper credit in the description. Add “Via: (Blog Name)” in the description of your entry. We believe that great tattoos should be shared with the world, so if you find something you feel is worth sharing then by all means do it, but never claim you’re the original author if you’re not. You can of course submit content you have published in your blog or site.

What size do images need to be?
All images are resized to 250px X 250px, you can submit images that are larger than that but not smaller. If possible submit images in this exact size. You can use a tool like CutMyPic to edit and crop your images.

What happens if my submission is declined?
If your submission is not approved, don’t get discouraged. When it’s possible we will try to give some feedback as to why your entry was declined. We recommend you also read our Submission Guidelines and try again. Entries that don’t pass the moderation process will be marked as pending. From time to time we re-review pending submissions, so it is possible that we approve a previously declined submission.

How long does it take to review and approve a submission?
The process of reviewing and approving a submission usually takes anywhere from a few minutes up to 48 hours and in some rare cases up to 72 hours. If after this period of time you don’t see your submission on the site, then this means it probably wasn’t approved. You may or may not get a note providing insight as to why your submission was declined. You can also check your profile page. If you see your submission there it means that the entry was approved.
