Tattoo Love is proud to announce our upcoming project: an exclusive digital book that will gather the best tattoos from artists around the world. This photographic book will highlight about 500 tattoos, offering a window into the most spectacular works and the most talented artists on the international scene, and will be published at the end of June.


An Independent Jury…

Our goal is not only to showcase the beauty and art of tattooing but also to delve into the creativity and skill of tattoo artists who, day by day, take this form of artistic expression to new levels. To ensure maximum quality and originality, the tattoos included in this book will be selected and evaluated by an independent jury, not directly associated with Tattoo Love Editorial.

This panel will be composed of three prominent Spanish tattoo artists, who will bring their experience and critical vision to the selection of the works. They will be responsible for evaluating each tattoo, ensuring that only the best are presented in our book.


Evaluation Criteria for Tattoo Selection

At Tattoo Love, we aim for our digital book not only to be a collection of images but a true gallery of art and technique. To this end, we have established rigorous selection criteria that will be applied by our independent jury. Tattoos must achieve a minimum score of 8 out of 10 overall, analyzing the following aspects:

  1. Photo Quality: The tattoo image must be of high resolution and clarity so that the details of the tattoo are clearly appreciated. The lighting should highlight the colors, shadows, textures, etc., of the tattoo, without distracting shadows or reflections that may alter the perception of the art.
  2. Technical Quality of the Tattoo: This criterion evaluates the tattoo artist’s skill in applying the ink and the precision of the tracing. Aspects such as line clarity, consistency of filling, and precision in color gradations will be considered.
  3. Details of the Tattoo: The fine details and precision in the smallest elements of the tattoo will be scrutinized. A standout tattoo must display a level of detail that demonstrates the technical mastery of the artist, both on a small scale and in the integration of those details into the overall design.
  4. Composition and Placement: The way the tattoo adapts and flows with the body’s anatomy is crucial. This criterion evaluates how the design complements the body’s shape, considering the proportionality and visual balance of the tattoo relative to its location.
  5. Originality of the Design: We seek works that show creativity and a unique style. This point values the artist’s ability to create a design that is innovative and personal, that stands out from the crowd and presents a distinctive artistic vision.
