"'The cinders are falling like snow.' There is poetry in despair, and we sang with unrivaled beauty, bitter elegies of savagery and eloquence. Of blue and grey. Strange, we ran down desperate streets and carved our names in the flesh of the city. The sun has stagnated somewhere beyond the rim of the horizon and the darkness is a mystery of curves and lines. Still, we lay under the emptiness and drifted slowly outward, and somewhere in the wilderness we found salvation scratched into the earth like a message."

C H A L L E N G E
The HP fanbase is full of tattoos from the extravagant to the simply sweet. You know, if I could find an artist that had an attention span, I would want a tattoo of a matagot. Ever thought of all the things in the HP Universe that are so obscure, yet could make such an interesting image? Better yet, an interesting tattoo?

Choosing one of the following items you saw during your recent trip to Borgin & Burkes, you are to create a goth-inspired tattoo (but please do not purchase stuff off Amazon and start a tattoo shop in your basement)
> Opal Necklace
> Any one of the seven Horcruxes
> Hand of Glory
> Vanishing Cabinet
> Bloody Deck of Cards
> Evil Mask
> Staring Glass Eye
Note: These do NOT need to match or remotely resemble the HEX or movie equivalents, but they DO need to be recognizable for what they are.



R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ You can choose any medium for this challenge - traditional, digital, photo manipulation - anything goes.
+ You MUST use one of the above items in your Gothic tattoo design.

it has to include that item - so whether the tattoo itself is that item or whether it is an item within a larger design - whichever works.

It was actually Mrs Norris, but we'll blame it on Peeves. The link should work now. Sorry for the trouble @Graciesnake

We’re sorry for how frustrating this must be. We are looking into it, though.

Hi! I haven't submitted an entry before to this kind of submissions box. Which link should I choose? Does the DIRECT IMAGE LINK start with "[url=..." OR "<a href= ..." OR something else entirely.

<img src="DIRECT IMAGE LINK">


so for this, the link you use to post or show us your image is what you would put in that spot.
just like you would use [img*][*/img] w/ BBCode to post an image w/ the link between it, you'd insert that same link where it says direct image link.

does that make sense?
I feel like I am making it more complicated than answering that question. xD

if you can include whatever item you choose from the list without it being somehow being HP related, sure.
