'John Wilkinson a fan of my 'Tribal Tattoo' artwork.'
Once again someone stumbled across my tribal tattoo art and decided to make a life time commitment to it. The most recent person to have my art applied to their body is a gentleman by the name of John Wilkinson. He took my art and had a tattoo artist replicate it on his calf. The artist obviously took some liberty with it. This is now the fourth time (that I am aware of) that someone has used my artwork to get tattooed onto their body permanently.
'My Original Tribal Tattoo Art.'
I am always flattered in a wierd kind of way but then there is another part of me that thinks "Hey that is technically copyright infringement. They didn't ask permission nor did they pay me a usage fee." Makes me wonder if an artist like myself could sue someone for using my art without permission and win a case where they'd have to have it surgically removed? Of course I'd never do that myself but I can't help but wonder.
In any regard, John enjoy the art and thanks for sharing the picture. As for me and my torso I prefer a blank canvas. I just can't make that type of artistic commitment.
