What's your vision?
Looking for a creative tattoo of my beloved black cat, Sketch. He's nearing the end of his life, and I would love to have him immortalized on my inner right wrist, in a size that mirrors the tattoo on my left inner wrist (reference photo included). I'd prefer a full-body image of him, I'm thinking. This is a gallery of him for inspiration about his personality: https://www.theoriginalblackcat.com/Other/Sketch/n-XjMxG/ And this is a Pinterest board of tattoo styles I either currently have or appeal to me: https://www.pinterest.com/llywellyn/tattoo-styles/ I would like some hint of detail that indicates this is Sketch and not a generic black cat, if at all possible. So no all-out silhouettes, please. I've had Sketch nearly 20 years; he's my baby kitty, my boo bear, my little love. I'm going to be heartbroken when he leaves me, so this tattoo will be very important to me. He hates to be picked up, but he loves to cuddle. He's also a lap cat. And his tail is lethal—a bit longer than normal with the ability to thwack with force if you're not paying attention. He's blind now, but his eyes are still a beautiful amber yellow. And his purr is quiet but strong if you press your ear to his side. Please help me capture him well so I can keep him with me long after he's gone.
No detail-less silhouettes. Black ink only or color is fine.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Tattoo starts at $409.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their tattoo.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Llywellyn collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Anne immediately captured the heart and soul of my brief with her original design. I fell in love with it in an instant, and only very minimal revisions were needed—barely anything at all, truly. And through it all she communicated warmly, professionally, and in a timely manner. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
