This tattoo is already a rip off of another piece of artwork EPIC FAIL BUD

A snake and candy skull combo certainly isn't an exclusive concept (I think). But as far as I'm concerned, the style, execution, layout, positioning, composition, and etc, are all my own. Viewing my body of work and mission statement, should be proof that I'm not one who'll partake in the practice of "ripping off" (it goes against my very morals). Basically, I have never knowingly ripped off someone elses' work. Someone pointing out that my finished work is similar / reminds them of anothers' work, now that happens once in a while (I really hate it when it happens, but it can't be helped). Note that I even mention what my inspiration was.

So after explaining all that, the only explanation for your claim is that you've seen something similar (and that's older) to this piece (created 2009). May you please take the time in finding said work and providing a link for me? I'd love to see it :) I'm afraid your words don't have any weight as is, but it'll mean even less if you can't provide a proper comparison (the piece is older, has the same layout, style, etc). Though such claims are never true, I do take such accusations very seriously (reasons shared above). Actually, I insist you provide a link; as an empty accusation would not reflect well on you.

And I think I should point out, technically it's an illustration, not a tattoo. As far as I know, no one has this design as an actual tattoo. "Tattoo" was the inspiration behind the design, which is why it's in the title.

I'm sorry, I don't really understand your question: "How much for the tattoo right?" doesn't make any sense grammatically. Feel free to ask me anything by note.

Yes. If requested. Not sure if I would feel right selling it, since I don't have the original and would just be selling the tattoo rights and a hi-res copy.

As mentioned before, I wouldn't feel right by selling it. If interested, I think the best would be to commission me to design a tattoo that's inspired by this one. Commission info linked below and on my front page.

Maybe $100.00 since (as mentioned in the artist comments) all I have is the hi-res copy to deliver. If I had the original to mail out, then it would be $300-$400.

Wow, this is an awesome piece - where do you find inspiration for your works?
Reply
:iconfydbac:
fydbac Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thank you!

My inspiration comes from anything. Concerning tattoo designs, my inspiration mainly comes from the countless beautiful tattoo's I've seen pictures of: the way they work with the shape of the persons body, the smooth shading work, how fun it looks to tattoo, and how I look forward to having a collection of work as strong as the talented tattoo artist behind the work I admire.

I really think you should put a subtle watermark on it that says "DO NOT USE." It's just too good, and if you want dollar for it, you should get it! And hopefully any respectable tattoo artist won't do the work if it has that watermark.

it would be an awesome first tattoo :)

fydbac Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
No color version. But if anyone is interested in having it as a tattoo, I hope they have their choose tattoo artist take the concept and make it their own, rather than copy it. This is far from being a flash (which i loathe).

I think it'll be a great first tattoo as well: but nothing smaller than a half sleeve will do it justice.

oh yeah, i think it's totally stupid to copy the motive from the internet and use it then, because then you don't got a tattoo that really suite to yourself! it doens't got the touch..

i just asked you because it would be interesting to see it with colours. must be amazing in dark red, dark green, and soft blue colours and the rest should be white and black :D

i just can say again. :) amazing work dude ^^ go on like that :)

Thank you, I'm glad you like it.

I'm curious, How much do you think the tattoo rights/hi-res will cost from me? Not including the tattoo artist fee when one goes to the studio.

possibly over a hundred or more..i guess..the tattoo artist fee is a whole 'nother story lol

fydbac Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Professional General Artist
Heh, you're right on both guesses. And If your tattoo artist is good...I'm guessing the fee would be more than 500.

this is one insane design. i can only wish to create something like this. i have one question about the rights though. being as vast as the internet is, what's stopping anyone from just copying, pasting, printing then bringing it to any tattoo artist and go "do this on my forehead!" i only ask this because a few years back, someone took a design i posted here on DA and added a couple, little details. he ended up posting it and took the credit for the design which i thought was complete bullcrap. i guess the point of my rant is to be careful, for there are treacherous leeches out there who'll take a mile if they're given an inch.
