Can you design me a tattoo to be completed by another artist?
As much as I would like to design every tattoo, there simply is not enough time in my busy schedule to design tattoos I do not actually tattoo. Thanks so much for the interest in my work, and I am honored by the request.
I REally love this design in your portfolio, can you tattoo it on me, or can I have this design tattooed on my by another artist?
Each of my tattoo “designs” are actually custom creations for the specific client, and each tattoo carries a special significance for that client. So, it is disrespectful to have this tattoo copied by another tattooer. We do get many similar requests, so, you’re not alone in this thought process; however it is totally unacceptable to go forward with this intention. I thank you for your sensitivity in asking beforehand and hope that you understand why we must decline such inquiries. It is out of respect for the individual that has had this image engraved into their flesh.
Can I have permission to get your Artwork / Designs tattooed on me?
I apologize but I cannot give you permission to use my artwork as a tattoo. I have a policy of not giving anyone permission to get my designs tattooed by other artists out of respect for my clients and my work. I do this for my clients because I feel they deserve to have my designs kept exclusive, they have to wait years to get tattooed by me and many come from very far away, I feel the least I can do is prevent my designs from becoming mass produced as tattoos. I also will most likely have a client at some point who is interested in having this design tattooed and I would like to be able to do that when the opportunity comes, and if I know the design has been tattooed already I cannot do this in good conscious, as I only tattoo original designs. I do this out of respect for my work as I have not had an experience yet where I felt pleased with another artist’s execution of my design, although my tattoos are by no-means perfect, I feel that the designs deserve to be tattooed by my hand. I hope you understand this, and I really appreciate your request, and your willingness to make it. I hope you can understand my policy and I hope it is compassionate and respectful of all people involved.
