Bubblegum Ink Award Winners

Award winning again, this time in the sun 🙂

More tattoo awards



Daytona Bike Week, Florida, USA

While in America Paul and Sandra picked up a few awards on the way!!

Awards won for work by Paul  on Sandra 





This is a great achievement, winning these awards. To be surrounded by your peers as well as another 20 odd tattoo artists as well as a huge crowd and have your work recognized as being the best on show is great and humbling. The awards at Rats hole for tattoos is judged not by a 3 person judge system but the old school way of letting the tattoo artists and crowd decide, once they have the last 4 of each award, then the tattoo artists get to have a look over and the they all get to vote.

A great way of doing it and also a more honest way to be recognized for your work. tattoo artist from all over Florida and Miami come to the show to take the awards and it is sponsored by tattoo artists as well. For Bubblegum Ink to pick to up two awards for one piece is great.
