Announcing the Tattoos Challenge Winners

DEC 28, 2017

Born to Meow by monika_suska

The word tattoo comes from the Tahitian word “tatu” which means “to mark something.” Love them or hate them, tattoos have evolved over the years to become a way for artists to express their personal style.  And just as tattoos are unique to those who wear them, the Spoonflower community of artists put their own personal spin on this timeless art form for this week’s design challenge. We’re buzzing with excitement for grand prize winner monika_suskawho will be receiving a $200 Spoonflower credit for her design, Born to Meow. We also want to congratulate second place (stitchyrichie) and third place (morecandystudio) winners who will be receiving $100 and $50 in Spoonflower credit, respectively. See which designers made their mark in the top ten.
