Art imitates life? Thread

Recommended Posts

I notice that Margot Robbie, the actress playing Harley Quinn'c character from the movie Suicide Squad had a tattoo on her abdomen, just above the pant line which read "Lucky You".

Thing is that Tattoo is actually on a Popular Tattoo Model, I have seen her on the cover of several Tattoo Magazines, just flipped through a stack and did not see her, don't remember her name but other astute tattoo trivia - forum members will probably be able to find out. 

Here it is, just found her pics from the internet...

Point is, what do you think about it when Art imitates life like this?

Also this thread can hold other instances of such examples....

@Charles.M

I'm pretty sure  Margot Robbie doesn't have those real tattoos ,it's just for the movie.I think the only real one she has is a tiny anchor on her ankle.

and who  cares if other people have similar tattoos anyway ?  like was said,it's probably very common.

there are probably thousands of women who have that tattoo there.

Those Tattoos are fake for sure (only for the character the actress is portraying), what I am pointing out is that a real Tattoo model's Tattoo on her stomach has been imitated into a movie character's fake tattoos, (for the character), hence Art imitates life. Imagine meeting someone with a complete copy of your tattoos (whether real of fake), it would be like meeting a doubleganger. Maybe this is a trendy tattoo that I just missed and only was aware of it on that specific Tattoo model who kept appearing in Magazines, especially the covers, I mean that is one of her identifiable features, with all the hair and make up and costume stuff... I would not recognize her otherwise...

They aren't real.

agreed.


Another example is Mike Tyson's face-tattoo in 'The Hangover 2', but that was a comedy, specifically making fun of people who copy stars tattoos...the joke was pointing it out blatantly.

the above example, of Harley Quinn's character I provided, seemed to me to be something different, if it is a moot point, ok...

When I was at a Tattoo convention in Calgary, I met this guy with a full back Tattoo by Grime. It was awesome, but, he was super cautious of people with cameras around taking pictures of his back. The way he saw it, and explained it to me, was that it was his tattoo art designed for him by Grime and he did not want to see 10 bad copies of it appearing all over the internet. Trendy tattoos are one thing, then there is something else...thought I would share and read other peoples views on the subject. Thanks.

I guess one has accomplished something when their tattoo that they are known for (I noticed it) has made it's way to popular culture....then starts a trend. Did the cover model get the tattoo cause it was trendy or started the trend. Which came first the chicken or the egg?

i never understood why somene would get bummed out if someone else had the same tattoo - i have a sailor jerry octopus and a basic pharoahs horses tattoo that you can find in any shop and probably tattooed on many many folks - but...who cares

    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
    • I like your tattoo a lot! And what a cool and original idea to go with your childhood home! I at least haven't heard of that idea before, so I really like it. I always like me some original and creative ideas. 🙂 As for your question, I've worked as a supervisor in retail for 7 years and therefore had to deal with customers a lot. The moment I got my first forearm tattoo, I got a LOT of customers asking about it. They all told me they really liked it, and one even told me she wanted to get one exactly like mine, and I even had older customers who were super grumpy about tattoos be like "I do like yours" LOL. Then I got another forearm tattoo, though higher up on my forearm, on my right arm and I never once had any customer or even colleague ask about that one. I love that tattoo just as much as the other if not more, and, like @Dan, I'm completely fine with that too. I know this tattoo looks good and professional; and that it fits me well, and I don't really need anyone else validating that because what really matters is what I think when I see it, and I like it.  Frankly, the sheer amount of comments I got about my first tattoo kind of daunted me. Of course, I knew what I was getting into when I got it tattooed so I never resented anyone for asking about it either, but when you get comments like "but what does it REALLY mean?" "what is the deeper meaning behind it???" daily, it does get old pretty quick. 😅
    • I personally really don't think it has to be weird at all. I'd just approach an artist whose work you like and who you feel like you can trust, and then they'll tell you whether they want to take on your task or not. I really think there'd be quite some artists out there who would be willing to take that on. Long as you're not asking them to finish tattoos others worked on/started, which I don't see being an impossible task either but which probably would put them in a much more difficult position given the differences in style as opposed to their own they'd have to work with, I don't really see many issues with this.  I think in most cases the best thing is to just approach and ask! 🙂
