New To BBing Comps: Tattoos?

I have been into competitively powerlifting for the last 2 years and because of tickles in my joints from pushing heavy weight i want to come off it for a little while and get into bodybuilding. I was wondering if tattoos effect the way a person can be judged in competition

Depends on what and where.

There are plenty of guys with ink that have competed and done well though.

Yates, Priest, and Stan McQuay.

Get a tatoo of some muscles. That should help, but it may look goofy off stage. But hey, no goofier than synthol.
