One month ago we presented you with a bracket filled with 64 amazing tattoo artists and challenged you to vote for your favorites. Five rounds and over 30,000 votes later the field has been narrowed down to two men: Victor Portugal and Tye Harris.
Both Portugal and Harris wowed voters with their realistic portraits as Portugal came out of the Realism region and Harris won the Black and Grey region. The artists faced stiff challenges throughout the tournament but were able to prevail. Whoever wins this battle will have truly be a worthy champion.
If the only thing that the 2014 Tattoo Madness Champion received was bragging rights for the next 12 months that would be an amazing prize but we wanted to sweeten the deal a bit and threw in a $100 gift card to InkedShop.com. Then our friends at Samsung were generous enough to provide us with an amazing Samsung Galaxy S5 Smart Phone along with the wearable Gear accessory.
If you want to get a look at how we got to this point check out the Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight and Final Four. In the gallery below we have included all of the tattoos both Portugal and Harris have had in the tournament. We encourage you to do everything you can to support your favorite artist: tell all of your friends, share the link on social media, even go vote multiple times under assumed names. Voting is open now and will continue until the middle of the day on Monday, April 7.
Good luck and may the best artist win!
