At the ripe old age of 34, I plan to get my first Ink done this year. It’s a something I’ve wanted to do for the last ten years, but never got around to it — this is the year. I thought my decaying death dragon concept was gonna be freaky, but I’m not even in the running for oddball. Apparently if you get the most badass Milwaukee tattoo before December 2011, every year will be like Christmas with free Milwaukee tools for life.
No joke, the press release breaks it down like a fraction for you:
The Milwaukee Ink Tattoo of the Year contest will run through December 2011, giving users the chance to receive monthly recognition in the interim. With the “Rate Tattoo” feature on the website, participants, friends, and family can vote on each tattoo once a day to bring the best tattoos one step closer to earning the honor of “Milwaukee Tattoo of the Month.” Monthly winners will each receive a tool valued up to $300 and then be eligible to win the grand prize of Milwaukee Tools for Life*.
So you get branded with Milwaukee or the tools themselves, load your pic on the site, and you get a shot at power tool nirvana. Of course if you aren’t the grand-prize winner or the one of the monthly winners you get, well, a Milwaukee tattoo. So it’s a pride-for-life type thing. Personally I’m voting for the first person who manages to incorporate flames, skulls, tools, and dragons into his ink.
