This is no ordinary scout for tattooed-girls, we are looking for beautiful women with a strong sense of self and stage presence. We are looking for women who come together with other women to build each other stronger. And most of all, we are about having fun and bringing great energy and entertainment to our crowd.
Finalists are hand-picked by a show team panel. Entrants must submit an application with images of their tattoos and artwork visible. Please include links to social media platforms. In a small paragraph, detail your reasons for applying.
