Tattoo Industry Awards 

Skin Deep Tattoo Magazine is delighted to present to you the nominees for the Tattoo Industry Awards at Tattoo Jam. The most recognised and respected awards of their kind, they will be as hotly contested as ever with some truly fantastic artists being recognised.

Taking the last 12 months of inky action into consideration, these finalists have been selected carefully, only by those who know the industry inside-out. We wish them all the best as we look to announcing the winners at the Tattoo Masters' Ball on Artist Friday.

There will be much heated deliberation taking place between now and then!
