69 Eyes tattoo competition winner announced

After more than 130 submissions of 69 Eyes tattoo images, tattoo icon Kat Von D (L.A. Ink) has picked her top five as well as the final winner!


Commented Kat about the new 69 Eyes video and the contest:

'I remember a little while back when Bam told me he was directing The 69 Eyes new music video for Dead Girls Are Easy, I was excited to see what he came up with, considering what a fan I was of the last video he did for them, Lost Boys (which is my fave 69 Eyes song, btw!). And now with their new album, (Back In Blood) being released - I was even more stoked when they asked me to be a part of their tattoo contest! I dwindled it down to the top 5 tattoos inspired by the band - and submitted the final winner...'


And the winner is: Brent Zartler! Congratulations! You can check out the winning tatt & heaps of others at this location.


The top 5 will get The 69 Eyes stuff, exclusively signed by the band!
