“Manly Camping Weekend – Sweaty T-shirt Transfer” and “The Golden Elite Force Dancers” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

Ink of the Week winners

The guys pictured here look forward to their men’s beach camping trip every year, for eight years running. During their most recent trip to Cape Hatteras, the guys sported neon orange shirts during a game of ultimate frisbee on the beach. During the game, “a ridiculously awesome chest-bump occurred, which resulted in the accidental invention of the sweaty t-shirt transfer.”

Ink of the Week winners

Looking “more elite than ever,” the Golden Elite Force Dancers take a minute to pose before their basketball half time show performance. We love how happy these first-time customers look in their new dance uniforms!
