Artists who rank highly on this leaderboard have tattoos that are trending often both on our website and on social media. Earning points on the People's Choice Leaderboard are based on the number of votes a tattoo receives, and each vote is then converted into points by our system and put into a prize pool. The higher amount of total votes there are in a competition, the more points will be added to the prize pool and awarded to the top artists in the competition.
