tattoo by glittersniffer tattoo by glittersniffer
a lovely lady got a twisted version of my image tattooed on her upper back...

here is my origonal image - [link]

i think the tattoo artist changed it a bit to make it more his/her own? -shrugs-

i dont mind anyone getting anything already existing in my gallery tattooed on them...you dont have to pay
just please send me a photo when its done!

respect the artist.

when I first saw it, it remindet me a lot of the girl of "the last unicorn". The dreary eyes, and the long curled hair [link]

i think it works ok as a tattoo :)
black and white art can make nice tattoos...it depends on each taste

black and grey tattoos are fine and have their place, but people need to start getting more color. cause if all you get is black and grey work, then it looks like you got it all done in prison. problem is alot of people are ill informed and think that color doesnt stick/last (which was true with the inks/machines being used in the 90s) and also that color costs more. if a tattoo artist charges more for color slap them in the face and walk out of that shop. cause thats just their way of rippin you off.(probably cause they dont wanna do the piece)this particular piece needs the red, at least. alot of detail/definition was lost by not adding color.

well i know about tattoos because i was learning to tattoo myself for 6 months
and i have my own half sleeve which is very colourful :)

so i do belive in what you are saying and do think you are entitled to your own opinion..
but i have to say that classing all greywash tattoos as -looking like tatts you got in prison-
then i have to dissagree..
its like anything...there is good tattoo work and bad tattoo work... bad stuff is usually the stuff that comes out of prison

-shrugs-i have seen great greywash designs and i dont think they look bad or prison like at all :)
but like i said -fair enough- you think the way you do..i think alot of Kat Von Des greywash is simply devine and dateless :)

Hi there, i was browsing through the galleries and wondered if there was any chance you could add this to a new tattoo site i'm helping build? the site's at [link] if you get a moment to take a look, - your tattoo looks amazing, and it'd be much appreciated if you could add it - the site's still young, so we're just starting out,

thanks for giving this a read, and hope all's well,
Tom

that was such a change.. that borders on stealing your art there if you ask me.
its a fine line. but that tattoo is not your drawing, that was completely different, displaying something different.
but if it doesnt bother you, right ON!.. id be pissed, lol.

hi there :)
I know its been a long time since you comented on this,but since I'm the one who has it on ... hehe

I just wanted to clarify that i did not take it without asking first. Same goes for the big changes the tattoo artist made. I asked before changing and waited for Tegan to allow me to do so. I respect her art, and I had not made any changes whatsoever if she would not of told me it was ok.

Its not only to you I'm saying this, but to everyone who comented in that direction.

No harsh feelings! I would be pissed as well if someone would take my art and not ask before changing a thing.

cheers!xx

I'm actually looking to get a new tattoo sometime soon. Usually I'd draw it myself, but I've gotten so frusterated with my drawings not coming out the way I'd like them to.
So I browse DA >=)
I almost fell out of my chair when I came across your site. Your drawings are exactly the type of thing I've been looking for, however I don't really see anything that I want (exactly) so I was wondering how much you would want to draw a custom one for me ^_^? I'm not super rich or anything, but I would be willing to pay you for your time and effort if you want. :)
You can get ahold of me via my DA.

Laters!

i've been watching your art here and there and i've always loved your style, and i've been trying to find something similar for when i get one of my sleeves done (who knows, that might not be for years) but i am looking for something twisted, beautiful so well detailed and cartoonish you may say, like your style of work, because part of my sleeve will be a pinup of a girl, so is fine if i keep up with your work and if i ever find anything, talk to you about it and maybe use it? your work is very beautiful

take care

it looks great. tattoo artist allways change the design a bit to make it possible for tattooing., bcause tattoo is very different from drawing with pens, for example, but looking at it u can see the tattoo artist really know what his doing.
it's a real bummer when someones getting ur work tattooed and the tattoo artist mess it up completly. =(
appened to me a couple of times...

yes i know what you mean...i was training to be a tattooist...so i know its different from drawing with pens.

it is always a risk if the tattoo artists messes up a great work of art...i wanted mark rydens -rose- image on me...but im worried the tattooist will do a shit job and ill be upset with it

oh u were also trained to be a tatooist? cool. i also studied back when i was 17 at a freind tatooist but in israel we have way too many tattoo artists so i quited. maybe i'll go back to it.

i can understand what u mean. i had a piece by trina s. hyman of peter pan and tinkerbell from the original book and it came out nice but not nearly as the original. my advise is that u try to find a really good artist who's style is fit to ryden's work and get it done only after u talk ti him/her and make sure he'she understands waht u want. usually they just use too many ugly lines and that's not good bcause ryde'n doesn't have lines allmoust at all. it should be done all in shadings.

good luck and keep up ur good work. i'm watching u. :love:

Even though the artist took a few liberties with the drawing, it still looks great. I like your original better, because of the bloody stump. :D Your art is definately tattoo worthy and I'm glad it came out so sharp. Congrats grrl. :skullbones:
