GIVEAWAY #12 – DOVETAIL TATTOO
Can you believe that it is almost the end of December? I have been so blessed to be able to give away so much fun stuff and I still have a few things left to give away!!!!
So many of you have asked where Aaron & I get our tattoo's done, and I'm happy to tell you that this giveaway is for DOVETAIL TATTOO, which is where we get all of our work done!!!
Now before you start thinking that this giveaway is not for you, try and think if you know anyone that would love to get a tattoo and maybe you could give it to them for a “Happy 2012” present!
Dovetail is graciously giving away FOUR gift certificates that are each worth $60 off of any work that's more than $120!!!!
Cameron Heavyweather is one of the artist at the shop, and all of these certificates can be used with him anytime between now and June 1, 2012.
Cameron has been tattooing for about 10 years now and has tattooed in California, Colorado, Nevada and now at DOVETAIL in Austin. He was originally highly influenced by Japanese artwork and style, and later was influenced by western styles of artwork from many different perspectives. Now, he tries to combine both of his influences in his tattooing.
Cameron describes himself as a traditional style artist, yet very versatile. His goal in tattooing is to achieve, as much as possible, entirely handcrafted work. He says he follows the traditions of those who have come before him with respect, because they have made it possible for him to do what he loves and he loves what he does!
To win this giveaway you can do any of these things, and as usual you can do as many as you want or as few as you want! It is up to you! Leave me a comment telling me what you did.
1. Visit Dovetail Tattoo facebook page & like them. While you are there you might as well wish them “Happy New Year!!”
2. Tell me what you want to get done, or who you are giving this to & what they want!
3. Share this giveaway!!! Facebook of twitter …. Or however you share great news these days!!!!
Good luck! Contest ends at noon (CST) on Friday 30th! Good luck and tell your friends, maybe you could both win …. I do have FOUR to giveaway!
**All of the pictures above are work of Cameron's**
CONGRATS to Jill Stockton, Christine Moers, Jackie & Angela Suh

I would love to have a tattoo dedicated to my kids!
i liked them on facebook.
I really want to win this giveaway! I want bands on my arm, sort of like bangle bracelets
I “liked” dovetail on facebook
I’m not sure what I’d get done, but it would be something that would remind me of God’s love, faithfulness, grace, & mercy towards me….
I shared on Facebook.
I liked them on FB!
I would give this away to a friend so he could get the Marine Corps Eagle, Globe and Anchor symbol that he’s been wanting for years!
I twittered about the giveaway (twenty9freckles)
I did them all! 🙂 I have several ideas for tattoos and they would all be something to do with my family…especially my sweet baby girl!
I love Dovetail Tatoo!! I like them on Facebook and love their artwork that they have done. I hope I win!
I would like to give this gift if I win to my fiancé. He has been waiting to get his grandmother’s portrait done and this would be awesome gift!!
I’m not sure what I would have done, I usually like the input of the artist.
I liked them on Facebook!
I’ve liked them forever on FaceBook. Tweeted and FaceBooked the holy bageebiz out of it.
Brilliant giveaway, Jamie. BRILLIANT!
I would probably give the credit to my husband. He still just has one tatt. We need to help him catch up!
I also tweeted about it!
I would definitely be greedy and keep this one to myself. I’ve been wanting to get a second one so this would be perfect!
I tweeted about it!
I’ve been thinking about a couple different things – matching ring finger tats for me and Lee. Or something from the hymn, Come Now Fount of Every Blessing. I have a bound heart I’ve found and would love “prone to wander” below it.
I liked them on facebook. andplusalsotoo, i have refused to enter any of your other giveaways because I didn’t want to possibly win one, and then not be able to win this one!
I tweeted about it too, encouraging friends to enter so if they win, they can give it to me. 🙂
Liked and shared on Facebook. Would love to have a tattoo that represents the love in our family and the adoption journey we have been on.
and lastly, I know exactly what I want. I have a tattoo on my hip (we’re all 19 once, right?!) that i REALLY want to cover up with a day-of-the-dead “sugar skull” . I’ve wanted it for a while but only recently decided to use it as a cover up. Hope this puts me closer to getting it done!
I liked them on FB… I want to get a picture of a cross from the back with a banner for 2 Corinthians 5:21 “for he who knew no sin, became sin so that we may be the righteousness of God”… This prize means I can get it sooner rather than later… If i win of course 🙂
Oh my goodness!!! I would like to get a tattoo, but if I would win this, it would be a gift for my husband. He has been wanting to get another tattoo, but he always puts myself and our 7 kids before himself. We have seen the work done by this tattoo artist and my husband would be elated to get one from him!!!
I liked them and shared it! I want to win this for my husband. He is an artist and has had a new tattoo designed for several years that he would like to get that is a depiction of Christ’s love. We are the parents to four biological kids, 1 adopted and we are in process for adopting one more. He never spends money on himself ever. He works insanely hard running his own business to provide for our family and has a beautiful giving heart. I actually think he entered (but I don’t see his comment above) because he shared this on Facebook so I know he would love this. We didn’t get Christmas gifts for each other this year and I would love to give this to him. Thanks for considering him. Happy New Year!
Ooooh Yay! I LOVE your work done by them!! Great giveaway!
I liked them on FB & my Aaron is going to spread the word on his twitter for me 😉
I have been itching for a new tattoo for a year now! I have two designs/concepts I am trying to decide between.
The first one would be a traditional style version of a photograph I found of a mama bird with her two babies under her wings.
The second would be a dedication to Eliza. Before she was born we prayed the Holy Spirit would give us a specific characteristic we needed to speak over her life & push her towards. Hers was wisdom. I want to get an whimsical owl symbolizing wisdom with her name or birthdate somehow integrated.
I recently had to put down the first cat I got six years ago, she was an amazing black cat, just began to attack and have some major behavioral problems. I have a full sleeve and I’ve just started my other arm as traditional, so I’d be a symbolic black cat/panther in memory of my cat, Wendy.
My wonderful boyfriend has been saving his pennies to get “Kinsman Redeemer” in Hebrew tattooed on his wrist. I would get major girlfriend points if I surprised him with this gift certificate. And then he could use the money he has saved up to thank me with a nice dinner 🙂 Win win for everyone!
Jamie! I’ll go like them on facebook now. I’m actually looking to finish my bicep on new years day! haha but I’m going to do an anchor with banner work and ocean water as a filler for the other tattoos! This is probably the best give away you have done yet!
Alrighty…I liked them!! Lamar has been wanting to “add to and fix” the one that he has but doesn’t want to spend the money on it. I’d love to let him fix it without worrying so much about the cost.
I want a daisy chain around my ankle with a bumble bee, dragonfly, lady bug and butterfly. Each bug represents one of my 4 kids. I liked Dovetail on FB also.
I would give it to my older brother- he’s in the Navy and has a number of things he wants to get done and these are completely his style. The first one he got was a heart with “Mom” in it on his arm… http://twitpic.com/5huwz0
I would love to win this. I’m trying to plan a surprise trip to Austin in March for our 2 year anniversary and would love to surprise my husband and let him get some work done. I’ve liked their page on Facebook and I’m sharing this on my own Facebook. thanks so much
i’m not the kind of guy who would normally say “i want a tattoo.” i’m a germaphobe and needles scare me. but i have an overwhelming desire (and have had for the past few years) to get a tattoo of a tree on my upper shoulder. i’ve definitely been through seasons in my life and the idea of having a tree tattoo that represents my being rooted in christ so i can withstand the wind elements and continue to grow is something i can not shake.
we lived in austin for a while and are now in the woodlands and still have friends that drive back to austin just for tattoos from dovetail. that’s definitely where i want to go.
fingers are crossed!
1) Liked the page
2) Said Happy New Year
3) I have an idea of what I want I know I want a word, butterfly something Celtic looking.
4) I am going to share this as soon as I post this comment 😉
Hooray for giveaways and a Happy New Year to you too!
Oh! Fun giveaway!! I would love to get some work done around/over a white tattoo I have on my wrist that is way too faded!
I liked their facebook page!
I have been wanting a tattoo for quite some time but don’t have the funds to get one as beautiful as these pictured. I want an artistic interpretation around the phrase “new creation” from 2 Corinthians. This phrase has encompassed my life and a tattoo is definitely a way to be able to start a conversation about the significance. I picture sunflowers (my favorite flower) and honeybees (my name means honeybee) as being included in this tattoo, and I want the tattoo on my shoulder/upper arm
I saw this giveaway on facebook and think it is so great! Thank you for doing this!
For ten years now my wife has wanted a tattoo that signifies her childhood as well as our 4 childrens. I have not had the money to ge t the work done. It’s not a giant tattoo, but its custom, and that comes with a price. I myself have 14 tattoos, one of which has become quite the eyesore as it is my ex-wifes name. But thats neither here nor there. I want her to discover the wonderful world of tattoos. Please help!
I liked them on Facebook 🙂
Halim and I have talked about getting matching bands in lieu of our wedding rings. Also have thought about getting one on my arm with words about perseverance
SEVEN Sparrows arranged w/ a Dogwood to form a sleeve tattoo representing my Faith and my seven kids.
I just liked them on facebook!
Just tweeted : )
I went ahead and shared your site on http://www.facebook.com/Iamjoplin. Thank you for the giveaways. Happy “2012”
If I won this giveaway it would totally be for me : ) I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo from Dovetail for a while now (after seeing the work you got done and the work Tiffany had done). I’ve got a couple of ideas (one for my kids, one for my husband), but I’m also thinking strongly about having “Thy Word is Light Unto My Path and a Lamp Unto My Feet” tattooed on my foot with a lamp post like the one from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
*I hope I win*I hope I win*I hope I win*
I’d love to get a mashup of the Virgin Mary and Princess Peach! I got my first tattoo at Dovetail, and they’ll always have my business!
After living in Kamaishi Japan for three years, I would love a tattoo depicting tora-Mae, the traditional folk dance practiced there. The town was completely devastated by the tsunami, but the tiger dance represents resilience and strength. I would love it to be a mix of Japanese and traditional styles.
Liked them on FB!!!
I’d finally get the tat Ryan designed for me over a year ago when my Dad passed away. Based off verses in John 15 & the phrase “remain in my love.” Tribute to the love my heavenly father & my earthly father have instilled in my life. Ooooh, I so wanna win!
Retweeted. Jamie: I so badly want to get a tattoo of a danish flag with my grandfathrs name on top and the word BELIEVE below flag. My papa is 79 from Denmark and a 3x cancer survivor. Last week he dedicated his life to Christ on his run with friends. He told me on Christmas day. He got me into triathlon in 1997 and today I race as a professional. Forever, he struggled to believe. But our lord is great and merciful. I want to always remember that moment when he told me bc we found out he may have cancer for a 4 th time and yet he stands today in faith believing 🙂
I shared this on FB!!! http://www.facebook.com/kaellis
I tweeted about it!! https://twitter.com/kim_ellis
I FOR SURE liked them on FB!! 🙂
Jamie… you know that I have been wanting this FOREVER!!! Let’s make this marriage of mine PERMANENT!! I am LOVING this giveaway!
I want to win this for KIM!!!! I am getting a tatoo from Cameron anyways, so I figure I might as well get her a more expensive tat for the same price that I wanted to spend in the first place!!!! RIGHT?????
I also wouldn’t mind some touch ups on my own tattoo!
Oooooh…please!!! I would love to have my current flower colored in and add stars for each of the kids. My flower is based on Isaiah 40:8 and reminds me to daily connect with God by reading the Bible. I want to stars for the kids because of Phil.2:14…shine like stars in the universe…and when I look at it I would be reminded to pray for them! Liked them on Facebook and will tweet…love the work you have!! Would love to have some of my own!!
I want to win this for my husband so badly!

For a long time I have wanted a series of three flowers growing, each one with deeper roots. Written in the roots I want “1 Corinthians 3:7” It says “Neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow” For me it is a reminder that I can do nothing to MAKE someone, even myself grow. I can love and serve and share the Word, but only He can make things grow. And He does. It keeps me humble and reminds me of His Sovereinty and Faithfulness.
I am in love with this giveaway! I’ve looked at their stuff do many times! I want to get a tattoo similar to one my sister just got that represents our grandmother and family line!! We were supposed to do it together, but couldn’t ever find the time 🙁
Crossing my fingers!
I left a comment, liked on facebook and would more than thrilled to win this for my husband!!
I just liked them on FB!!!
This would definitely be for me, me, me!! 🙂 I want to add to my wrist. Right now I have James 1:27 on my left wrist and I want to add to it. I prefer to let the artists know what I like and then give them some creative freedom to design. 🙂
I shared it on FB. 🙂
Sharing with the entire city of Joplin, MO… https://www.facebook.com/IAmJOPLIN
I would get Seven Sparrows representing our Seven Kids.. They are our life. I would like Dovetail to do this and would think would be cool if 3 of the Seven were Doves… A little Advertisement for Dovetail. The 3 Doves will be in HONOR of our last three kids that we adopted..
I would like to win the tattoo because for the first time in my life I want to do something exciting . I’ve been in this box my entire life and over the last few months I’ve realized Jesus still loves even when im not perfect 🙂
my wife and i are running our first 1/2 marathons together in March and i’d love for us to get 13.1 tattoos for both of us! thanks for such a generous giveaway!
Retweeted on my twitter! @lovelierbunch
I would give the tattoo to my husband who works so hard for his family everyday. I think he wants a hammer on his forearm dedicated to his grandfather who passed away in march.
Happy New Year!
I already liked them on Facebook, but I wished them Happy New Years on a picture comment.
I would use this for myself. I have been considering getting my first tattoo for over a year now. I have pretty much picked out what I want. I want a small, colorful butterfly on my lower left calf. I have a scripture I want referenced, my children’s initials and the initials of my best friend who died unexpectedly this year. I want the initials very small and incorporated into the design.
If I win, I will take this as confirmation to move forward with this. I am in my 50s and some people think I am nuts to be considering this…
I liked them on Facebook.
If I win, I will give this to my mom. She has been thinking about getting one for a long time and has one all planned out. It has been a hard year for her, with several personal losses and this would something really special for her. She has admired your tattoos for a long time and the work at DoveTail. I hope I win for her.
