-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.

Is it still possible to get access to this celtic love knot tattoo design? I'd like to use your design-how do I send payment and obtain permission?
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.
