Tattoo Flash Advice

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am Gracy. I am a recent SVA graduate and I hopefully look forward to getting an apprenticeship in the future. 
Here is my website with the flash I have done: https://realgraceevalentine.wixsite.com/website/tattooflash

I came here to obtain feedback on different topics, but for now, I need feedback from other tattoo artists or enthusiasts about something. 

Recently, the Kyoto Animation studio has been destroyed due to arson, and lives have been lost. 
I am considering making tattoo flash to sell to fans, all inspired from different anime made by KyoAni. My intent is to raise money by selling this flash, and all proceeds will go to an official GoFundMe for the KyoAni recovery.

My worry is that some people will take the designs and get it tattooed without paying, and it would be unfair to those who paid. 

What advice would anyone give before I proceed with this?  I would appreciate any responses (honest and respectful please. This is a serious topic.)
Thanks!

Not trying to be mean, but why would anyone buy flash from an unknown artist who isn't even a tattoo artist? I wouldn't be too worried about people stealing the designs.

It’s okay! You’re not being mean. It’s the truth and you’re being honest. Especially when we’re talking about something that will permanently be on someone’s body for the rest of their life.

Any feedback including yours will help me determine whether it would be worth it or not putting it for sale.

I really appreciate the feedback!

    • I guess I was just a bit worried as I don't remember any of my other Tattoos healed this way. Feeling the bumpiness especially after all the peeling got me concerned I guess. I am dry healing it now. Perhaps it was me over moisturizing it but I didn't expect for it to become raised and itchy like it did.   
    • To me this is the most fun part of the process: It sounds like your artist knows what they're doing and has skills.    You sound like you've got some ideas on what direction to take things, but nothing super specific yet. What I do (the fun part) is come up with a list of wants:  "It needs to have a woman, and I want it to be a portrait or full body or whatever",  "I want her to be sitting/standing/holding something".  And then things I don't want: "I don't want her to appear angry/happy/smiling", "I don't want her to be in a forest" Usually you can draw a lot of inspiration by looking up other tattoos, and including the things you like/dislike about them into your own ideas.  Trim the lists down to something reasonable for your artist, and then let them implement it in a way they think is best. It's usually a total surprise until you get to the studio, but if you did a good job defining what you want, the artist should encompass a good portion of it in their own style in a way that they know will work.  Showing up day of and seeing what they've come up with is the best part.
    • You got me wrong actually. He didn't mean that he doesn't want to tattoo what do I want. As long as I said "Woman portrait" he joked about the one with the head dress but I never wanted it LOL. It was a mistake by me writing down that sentence in that way, I apologize for that (my english is not good so yeah, here we go.).  Thank you about the 10 posts.
