The Artist of Stardom Championship (アーティスト・オブ・スターダム選手権, Ātisuto Obu Sutādamu Senshuken) is a professional wrestling six-woman tag team championship owned by the World Wonder Ring Stardom promotion. The title was first announced during Stardom's year-end event on December 24, 2012,[1][2] and two days later its name was revealed as the "Artist of Stardom Championship", with a four-team one night single-elimination tournament announced to determine the inaugural champions.[6][7] On January 14, 2013, Kawasaki Katsushika Saikyou Densetsu (Act Yasukawa, Natsuki☆Taiyo and Saki Kashima) defeated Team Shimmer (Kellie Skater, Portia Perez and Tomoka Nakagawa) in the finals of the tournament to become the inaugural champions.[3][8][9] The championship belts were introduced on February 6, 2013, when they arrived to Stardom's office from their American maker. The belts are rare among all other tag team championship belts in that they are all of different color; one is blue, one orange and one pink.[10]

Like most professional wrestling championships, the title is won as a result of a scripted match. There have been seventeen reigns shared among seventeen teams and thirty wrestlers. Mayu Iwatani, Saki Kashima and Tam Nakano are the current champions in their first reign.
