    I recently found a nice piece of artwork I would like to have done as a tattoo, but I worry about the legality of it.

    I have tried to contact the original illustrator about using her artwork in a tattoo and I have not received any kind of response in a month.

    Do tattoos fall under copyright laws?

    I'm sorry if these seem like really stupid questions.

    We received a letter years ago about some Disney flash we had in the shop so we removed it (just kinda hid it in a different binder :rofl:) but as far as actually tattooing, I don't think any artist would pursue it.

    :rofl: You'd have to be a huge dick to sue someone for putting your art on their body permanently.

    IIRC there was an actual case of this. I'll have to search for it.

    A tattoo artist also sued a basketball player citing that he wanted him to stop showing his tattoo off in advertisements or he wanted a royalty cheque :rolleyes:

    :wtf:


    I've long maintained that tattoo artists are basically the only group of artists who aren't pretentious, self-important assholes. I guess even that's going to shit now.

    the mighty dollar controls all. It's pretty fucking pathetic. That guy probably lost tons of business once his customers found out how much of a douchebag he is.
