Hi, I've been browsing this site for a while having stumbled across it while doing some tattoo research and it seems a cracking place so I thought I'd join.

I've just recently got my first tattoo from a proper custom shop, one designed by an actual tattooist instead of me, don't get me wrong, my others weren't done by scratchers but let's just say this one is by far the best, the problem is, I've yet to get it finished and I'm already thinking about the next one! This could become expensive.

Anyway that's my introduction I guess, I look forward to being part of this community.

    • In my mind you've already got the acceptable limit = "inspiration". If you take that picture some a willing tattooist and say "I want this EXACTLY as this is" and they trace it out then it's just reproduced artwork, like a cartoon character.  If you take that picture to a qualified artist and say I'd like a goat's head and raven similar to this then you're likely to get an original piece of art. 
    • hi all! it's been a minute since i've been online - hope you're all doing well and are safe! ☺️ i wanted to ask, in your opinion, at what line does inspiration become ripping off another artist? is it okay to see someone's art and commission another artist to do their own take or spin on a concept? what are your thoughts? for example, i really want to get black phillip from the vvitch tattooed on my leg. i love the composition, styling, and overall design of this artist's interpretation. however, i would not want my own artist to blatantly copy someone else's design? i'd want them to incorporate their own ideas, styles, color palette, etc. to the table. is this okay in your opinion? i know that people feel strongly about copying (as they should) and i don't want to step on anyone's toes!
    • I don't think I can go on until I see it. 🤪
