New App: The Tattoo List
12:52 PM
the list app.jpgA new tattoo app has just been released and it's a must have for those wanting top tattoo art at their finger-tips and information on where to find those who've created it.

The Tattoo List is created by tattoo artist David Allen (check his an amazing blog), so this is an app created by someone with the knowledge and passion for the art, and not some company trying to cash on "the tat craze."

The Tattoo List isn't a game like Tattoo IQ or photo app like Tattoo Shop--it's a beautifully designed and easy way to find new artists or check in on your favorites. You can also sort and search by tattoo style or location, then save your own list in the "Favorites."

David offers some history behind the app and how the featured artists were chosen:
     
A year ago I was putting together a list of tattoo artists for personal inspiration. I wanted a single resource to keep track of those I enjoyed. While researching, I found many of the artists have information scattered all over the place... the process took a few months and was just too tedious.

With that idea in mind, the next step was honing a better version of "The List" and making it available as an application. I removed myself and setup a panel of four respected tattoo artists. They voted on 500 nominees. To be included, each nominee had to get three votes after being viewed by the judges separately. The process was strict, and, in the end, 323 artists made the first release.

The Tattoo List will continue to add artists--and their sample images--after each monthly judging session, so the app will continue to grow.

Another feature will be updates from us! You'll soon be able to get select N+S posts in the "News" section.

The app sells for $1.99 on iTunes and we think it's well worth it. If you do download it, let us know what you think.

I really need a nicer phone asap.



I just got it, it's really cool...but only in the states, it would be awsome to have a worldwide one...but I understand the works that would crawl into that!
so I'm happy with what I got,
and what I got is very very pretty , easy to use and interesting
