Celtic Knot- Tattoo design by DabsofKiwi Celtic Knot- Tattoo design by DabsofKiwi
READ!
-So it has come down to this, I need to watermark this piece even further so people wont continue to steal it.
You are NOT authorized to use this piece.
Times have changed and I now require a $10 commission charge fee to anyone who wishes to get this tattoo on them. Send me a note, and I will discuss the terms. Once payment is received you will get an UNWATERMARKED version of this piece, and will be free to do with it what you will.

$10 is a small fee. I never ask you to work off the clock and unpaid, why would you steal this, and force me into it?

Thank you.

ok, here's my story.... I love my tats and was shocked for my granddaughter to tell me " hey, nana , I found your tattoO on pinterest..." it was a WTF moment for me as I thought my flash had been drawn for me by a friend of a friend, after tracking down you thru pinterest, then google,then devianart, I find out that was not the case and you are the true artist... it is 2 years too late to email you and ask your permission to use the triquettra, and for this I DEEPLY APOLOGIZE... it is a beautiful piece and I am quite enamoured with how it came out on my back.. but saddened to think I inadvertanly have poached it... please let me know what I might do to make amends.. I don't have a lot of resources but would like to contribute in some way for this transgression.. again I am sooo sorry.. hope you will be kind for my error and let me know what might be done to rectify this.. regards, fierefey

I have to say, it's pretty bad when people don't have the decency to just ask before using someone's artwork. When I get other people to draw tats for me I get them to sign their work and then get the sig inked as well. What sad times we've come to...

It's a ridiculous world out there. I was massaging a lady at my work who literally got one of my designs tattooed on her leg. It was a design I reserved soully for myself (I have it tattooed on my own arm), and she didn't have the decency to contact the artist. I ended up talking to her about it, and she payed me for it. But... damn, did she feel silly. I just can't believe some people and their children.

Thanks!

I had been trying to find the right tattoo for ages. The minute I saw this design, I knew that this was the design I had been looking for. Reversed the design and turned it sideways...and that was over 2 months ago.

Thanks! I love it!

That is lovely that you found it and it worked for you. I don't recall up talking about the terms beforehand though?

I'm sorry about that. I was kinda rushed for time when I found the design. Based upon the comments, it seemed that you wanted to see a picture if someone used the design as a tattoo.

I work full time and am going through a divorce; it certainly didn't help that I deleted my old DA account after getting it...so once again I apologize.

No, I understand but times change. In my desc it says, "You are not authorized to use this artwork.-If you have a request, commission, trade, question or comment-- Please send me a note and we will discuss the terms." Meaning that I require a commission fee for all use of my artwork, it's not free game anymore. I designed this years ago, and then I wasn't making money off my art, but after the high amount of people liking these designs, and the amount of money I get from my work, it's a paid trade now.

I understand you have been through alot, and rushed for time and all but please do not make assumptions, and ask the artist before you take their artwork.

I am fine with it now, mistakes like this are the reason I am going through and redesigning my deviantart.

Gorgeous tattoo - very delicate and graceful, which many tattoos aren't =)

I've been thinking of getting a celtic knot tattoo for a while - still deciding, but there's a chance that I may contact you later about the terms of using/commissioning a design.

I had this done as a tattoo on my wrist, and I was !suzannedesantiago at the time, though I have since deleted my account. Just wanted to let you know because I will probably post a photo of my tat and link it back to you sometime.

I still love this tat, by the way.

This design has inspired me so much, it has helped me find the final design for the tattoo I've been trying to design for five years! If it's alright with you, could I use influences of your design to complete my claddagh tattoo?

This is truly beautiful work. Keep drawing!

Of course I'll share it with you! I absolutely love it. It's a modern claddagh I designed combining your piece and a piece by a friend of mine. It's etched in brown, which will lighten as it heals. How do I send you a picture?

Story behind the claddagh (Irish Promise Ring with heart, hands, and crown. I'm assuming you know that, though. ;) ) :

I've been an actor for over ten years, and I've worn a claddagh in every show I've done. Now that professional companies are asking me to not wear jewelry, I have a hidden claddagh I can wear forever so I'll have a claddagh on in every show. I wanted a modern claddagh because all of the traditional claddagh tattoos I've seen have been so bold and masculine. I wanted something to soften the claddagh. I also wanted a design to help ornament putting it on my left side. (I'm left handed, and I wanted it to be hidden for my theatre career.) It was also very important to make the claddagh personal to me and include my family. The claddagh's heart it comprised of my initials: C and E (which is backwards to make the heart.) The crown is made of my family's first names, John (Dad,) Sarah (Sister,) and Bettie (Mom.) The star in the center represents the star in the center of my claddagh ring my dad purchased for me many years ago, which I'm wearing as I type, and have worn in dozens of shows.

Your tattoo was absolutely lovely and helped me find the tattoo I've been searching for for 7 years. Keep on drawing, dear. You have an amazing talent. What are you doing with your gift?

Thank you so much! Let me know how or where to send it. I hope you like it!

Christie
