We asked our listeners to tell us about your favorite tattoo artists in the Bangor area, and we had lots of nominations. We've narrowed it down to the 17 tattoo artists with the most.

It's clear to see from the photos you all shared that there are many talented artists in and around the city. Now it's time to cast your vote.

We wanted to include as many nominees as possible so we were pretty easy-going with the definition of the Bangor area, basically including nominees from towns -- Brewer, Dover-Foxcroft, Newport, and Corinth -- within an hour or so of the city. They're in alphabetical order (by first name) below.

The winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card plus the esteemed title of Bangor Area's Favorite Tattoo Artist for 2017.

You may vote once per hour until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017.

You may see some of the artists' work in the gallery below the poll.
