With Halloween quickly approaching, Carnival Cartoons has decided to celebrate the season of ghosts, goblins, and all things geeky and freaky, by commissioning a handful of uber talented tattoo artists to take a stab at giving "Buzz Carney - The Tattooed strongman" (Carnival's first independently produced vinyl collector toy) some "Fresh Ink".  These hand picked artists will have a chance to customize blank Buzz toys with their own take on his tats, and their work will be displayed at Carnival Cartoons' table at this February's New York Comic Con.

Also, they are announcing a "Buzz Carney Custom Tattoo Competition".  Carnival wanted to give collectors a chance to be a part of the action as well.  Upon request, Carnival will be sending out templates as seen above for you to show them your wicked tattoo skills!  The competition will run from Oct. 31 - Nov. 30.  The grand prize winner will win his/her very own Buzz vinyl primed and ready for customization.  The grand prize winner will also win a screenprinted carnival cartoons t-shirt designed by Garnet Syberg-Olsen and a fitted "Pierce the Wild Child" Carney hat. The 2nd place winner will recieve a t-shirt and hat and the 3rd place will recive a Carnival t-shirt.

If enough interest is shown in the competition, Carnival Cartoons plans to have a gallery exhibit displaying customs and custom designs.  Email jareddeal@yahoo.com   for your hi-res custom template & for more info concerning the competition.
