    U artist that post ur work online,either the tat itself or the print...u have know right to bitch when u see your work on a site like this or anywere for that matter, that u did not tattoo personally...you are the one who put it out there for all of us to see...if we like it. we will use it. Either that put it on a site were u have to pay for it...otherwise keep the art in a porfolio at your shop and not online.

    Seriously! That's like saying it's ok to go to the Guggenheim Museum website copy one of the famous paintings and using it for your background on your own website. I personally ask my clients if it's cool before I post their tattoos on any online portfolio.

    Yes i understand and would do The same. But if its on here its free game...it all falls under a poormans copyright...if ur truly an artist u can make anything ur own...if someone wants mickey mouse The way hes actually drawn ,ur gonna find him either in a book or a pic online and print him ,trace and transfer it...and yes I would use and famous painting as a background if it was downloadable and I love the work...lol

    All the tattoo artists I know would never copy a custom piece that they see. The only time a piece gets copied is when it is flash off the wall. If you can't come up with your own custom work find a new job. My tattoo artist posts all my work online but no reputeable tattoo artist would directly copy another's work it may be used to get idea but that is it.
