Great shot man, you look awesome. I’m not sure what NPC’s regulations are on different tanning methods and products, but typically show tans do a good job of covering tattoos. What tan did you use for this show?
Just looking at the pic, it’s not a huge tattoo so I don’t think it’s an eye sore by any means. But, it is centered on your back and my eyes are drawn to it. It’s not a huge distraction, but it may take focus away from the rest of the shot, like your delts and bis, solid hamstrings and calves.
Do you know if it’ll result in a penalty if it’s visible? If you’re not sure, check the rule book, or see if you can find an email address on the NPC website, or maybe the show organizer or something, to ask about it.
