You are welcome to submit your own found/made skulls at the address in the upper right-hand corner of the site. But please read the following FIRST:

1. Be sure to include your name as you would like it to appear on the site.
2. Let me know if there is a website you would like YOUR name linked to.
3. I would prefer if you made or took the images yourself.
4. If you find the image online you MUST do the following or it will not be included:
  • Do NOT send just a direct link to an image file (jpeg, gif, png, etc.).
  • Attach the actual image in the e-mail.
  • Give the name of the original artist (and a link to that artists' work if available).
  • Provide a link to a web page where the art came from (if it wasn't directly from the artist's site)
5. If you are sending an image of your own tattoos be sure to include the artist's name, location, and website (if available) so I can give them proper credit.
6. If you send multiple items I may only pick one or two to include, so be selective if you can.
7. I won't repost items I've received before so be sure to check previous Braincase posts.
8. Please be patient it will take around 5-6 weeks for new submissions to be posted.
9. Don't forget you can see your items in the sidebar right away if you post them to Flickr and include the tag "skulladay".


p.s. I case you were wondering it took 3 hours to make this entry!

Pal, I check the link of my website, and it works. Probably when you check the link the server was down.
