The Judge's Choice is a new addition to our leaderboards in 2019.
wanted there to be another way for artists to participate on Tattoo
Awards online without having to rely on votes. Tattoos entered into this competition are not voted on or open to
public voting. Instead, they're judged by a hand-picked panel of
industry leaders using a sliding
scale judging system. Attaining a winning position in a Judge's Choice
competition awards a significant amount of points, reflective of the
level of difficulty present in winning these competitions. Similarly to
the People's Choice, this leaderboard is weighted at 35% toward the
Artist of the Year, so if you won 1,000 points through a Judge's Choice
competition, 350 of those points would also count toward your ranking in
the Artist of the Year.
