In the inaugural INKED Cover Girl Contest, thousands upon thousands of beautiful tattooed women from around the globe entered for the chance to win $25,000 and the coveted cover of INKED magazine. People from around the world had the opportunity to vote for who they wanted to see on our cover and week by week, the pack was slowly thinned out until only one woman was left standing. And while every woman who entered the contest deserves to be recognized, it's time for us to highlight the top 12 finalists of the 2018 competition. These women made their way to the front lines by gaining the most votes week by week and in the end, came out victorious as finalists. Let's take a look at Mariane Detera, who placed 5th overall in the competition. Take a look at just a few of the reasons why she made it to the top 12 in the gallery below and let us know what you thought of this year's cover search. Did your top pick make it to the finals? Who would you like to see make it all the way next time around? Share all of your thoughts, opinions and questions in the comments section on Facebook.
