MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – You may regret a tattoo you chose for yourself when you were younger, but imagine letting a complete stranger give you a tattoo of their choosing, without you even being able to see them.

On Tuesday, three artists are “blindly” tattooing residents brave enough to stick a body part through a hole in the wall for a free tattoo.

New Rock radio station 96.1 WKZQ is teaming up with artists from the Red Raven Art Company to bring the “Whole Glory,” to Myrtle Beach, a concept started in New York by tattoo artist Scott Campbell.

In less than two weeks, the station received over 350 online submissions from people willing to get a mystery tattoo. WMBF News Photographer Jonathan Dick was one of those lucky enough (and crazy enough) to get inked enigmatically.

The artists have a few cues to base the tattoo on – respondents were asked a few generic questions, such as how many tattoos they already have, what color they are, and the preferred style.

If a free tattoo is worth the risk for you, WKZQ is selecting one winner at 4 p.m. and three more winners at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Red Raven Art Company, located at 602-2 Seaboard Street. Check the company's Facebook page for details.
