well-known Dutch singer named Dré Hazes, wanted to have a tattoo design that matched the tattoos he had. It had to be timeless, black and white and absolutely no portrait of his father.
On a Tuesday afternoon, a friend told me that there is a call for creation of “Created on Friday” that would perfectly suit me. It was called “Design a tattoo for Dre Hazes”. After seeing the video, I was quite excited and I started drawing and sketching immediately. I worked till deep in the night to submit my design as fast as possible and collect votes.
The day after I had sent my pitch, it appeared that Dré had mentioned on Twitter that my design was his favorite!
I really did not see that coming. And after that it began to became clear to me that I maybe could win this contest. After a few sleepless nights, I ended up in the top five (of the 50 entries) and I was called by Dré Hazes himself: “I’m so stoked about your tattoo design, I want to put it on my body! He said.
I was so surprised and really happy that he chose my design.
