A totally free artist and fan of art community is hard to come by, especially one with the integrity of tatshirts.They do not use Personal information in anyway except for their own newsletter to keep Members current on the lastest information of what's going on with the community. The site is run by fans of art themselves and they wanted to give a family feel to an industry that can be hard and misunderstood at times. The profile page acts as a free cyber billboard for your gallery, tattoo shop, or artist page and yes it's all free.
The overall goal for their site is to have 100 artists win a year during an on going, 30 day contest. Artists may submit work at anytime as long as it is original and meets the minimum submission requirements. The designs will be up for voting for a 30 day period, during which the winners will be selected with the help of the voting community.
The normal 30 day contest includes the following prizes, $500, a t-shirt with the winning design, a sticker, and a spot on tatshirts.com winners’ page.
They suggest that the artist adds their signature to the final design as well. Because the artist's work will be on a t-shirt for the world to see, the signature will add to the free advertising and network connections for the winning artist.
One of their first winners, OsirisOrion, an up and coming vinyl toy maker, He has already felt the effects of his winning design. While at a convention he was approached by several fans whom he'd never met, and when asked how they knew of his work, the response was tatshirts.com.
Another key feature is that the artist gets to decide what color t-shirt would work best for the design. T-shirts will be printed in limited quantities and be sold on the website to help support the website and the community.
One of the benefits of becoming a member is that a lot of names are not yet taken. As an example, your user name could be "Bobs Tattoos" with your profile page containing the link to your exact website. No one after that can use "Bob's Tattoos".
Tatshirts.com was launched in October 2009 by people who love art, tattoos, and t-shirts. They wanted a safe haven for people to meet, network, and hopefully gain some recognition for their talents. Not to mention win some money.
