Many predicted the growth of tattoo as a popular form of art. Today, there are millions of tattoo enthusiasts willing to cover their entire body with artistic tattoos. Along with the popularity of tattoos, we also see new trends in tattoos coming up.
One of the latest and the most popular trends is to host an online tattoo design contest. Tattoo design contests are hosted by online servers and this is where both tattoo artists and the clients come into direct contact with each other and find what they are looking for.
Tattoo design marketplace offers several benefits to professional designers as well as hobbyists. Here are some benefits of having a tattoo design marketplace.
It is absolutely free - Most of the offline tattoo artist guilds take membership fee and some even ask for annual deposits/ charges. Online tattoo marketplace, on the contrary, does not charge any fees. As such tattoo artists can submit their designs anytime and have them published for free.
Typically, an online tattoo marketplace only charges a nominal amount from designers once their designs are sold. This is both beneficial for tattoo artists and buyers. For tattoo artists, their work is published for free and consequently improving the prospects of their designs being sold. For buyers, they get an access to a wide variety of tattoo designs to purchase from.
Unlimited submission - Tattoo artists can create designs everyday and submit them at the marketplace. There is no limit to the number of submissions. Artists can create and upload as many designs as they like and have them published online. Therefore, the more designs an artist creates and adds to the marketplace, the greater are the chances of his/her work being sold. Also, with the increase in the number of designs, buyers get many more options to choose from.
Designers retain the ownership of their designs - Designers, who put their designs for online sale, retain the ownership of their work. These artists can therefore choose to have one or more of their designs removed anytime from the marketplace as long as they are not sold.
Designers are free to set the price for their designs - Tattoo designers have all the freedom to fix a price that they deem fit for their designs. Usually designers set the price of a design based on its uniqueness, size, intricacy and complexity. If a designer feels that the price set for a particular design is inappropriate, he may change it anytime. However, since there is a very close competition among different artists in the market, prices tend to be regulated. This is especially beneficial for the tattoo enthusiasts because they can get custom tattoo designs at an affordable rate.
