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.
