Are you a professional tattoo artist? Do you want to make a difference? Would you like to paint a ukulele for our auction? If you answered YES! to all three questions, we want you!
Artists can sponsor a ukulele for $40, paint said ukulele, and donate it back to be auctioned. Artists who participate will be entered into a contest to win trophies and valuable prize packs provided by our generous sponsors.* Our 2018 artists are asked to paint their ukulele with their choice of art, keeping each ukulele as unique as the artist painting it. You do not need to live or work in Louisiana to participate. By applying to be a Rock and Roll Luau ukulele artist, you agree to ship your ukulele back to the Louisiana Modified Dolls for use in auction by May 15th, 2018. Deadline to apply has been extended to April 15th for the 2018 auction with the $40 sponsorship payment due within 48 hours of being accepted. 30 artists maximum will be chosen.
Non-tattoo artists who wish to participate are encouraged to apply, however, will not be eligible for tattoo supply based prizing.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Amber at LouisianaTMD@gmail.com.
