Why are tattoos not allowed? (not that I plan to submit anything tattoo related)


Unfortunately a lot of people in Japan find tattoos offensive (there's the whole gangster association that you are probably aware of), and the request was passed down that there be no tattoos. I find this unfortunate, because there are some really beautiful Sailor Moon tattoos out there, and some of them have very compelling stories behind them, but we need to respect the wishes of the licensor.

-t


I figured initially it was gang related, though I was thinking more along the Bloods and Crips line, though I guess if its a Japanese decision, its mostly cause tattoos are associated with the Yakuza. Still seems silly to me, its not like members of the Yakuza or the MS-13 walk around with Sailor Moon Tattoos Razz

Oh well, whatcha gonna do I guess, its their decision lol

Question: Would a photo with fanart (mine of course) included as part of a collage image (with other real pictures) be accepted?

You have to admit, it'd be pretty damn funny. "Get back to the Moon side of town! This is Madoka territory."

Hi! I just want to know if collages are allowed. How about animated GIFs? And can we really submit multiple entries? Thank you! Very Happy

Does the image need to be relating to Sailor Moon or relating to our text submission?
I want to talk about how it's inspired me to study Illustration and aim to become a children's book illustrator and I thought an image relating to that would be better Anime smile

Ahh, boy. Created an account just to say this.

Prepare for the sob stories, guys. Ultimately they're going to win, methinks. Which makes me sad lol but ah well. May the best entry win.

Ahh, I think my essay thing may have went over the limit. Does it stop you when you get to 100 words or did I just submit something that cuts off abruptly? o.o

Fan art, either a photo of it, or the original image itself, is acceptable (you have 1 image, not one photo).
