I've seen this drawing I think a year or so ago and I wanted it so much for a tattoo. May I use it? I'm not sure when I'll get it, maybe next year. But just want make sure I ask the original artist permission first.

The only thing I want to add...was my fish's name underneath. "Useless".

I've been looking at this little fish for years wanting to get him as a tattoo! I would love to, but I also want your permission first :) May I get him as my first tattoo?

By reading the comments, I get the feeling you don't really want people to copy you and get this as a tattoo (as it was originally your idea), but I also came across the comment where you'd written that you'd allow people to use it if they asked first.
So I was wondering, is it alright if I get this tattoo'd on me? Might be a while though, I'm still underage, but my parents have promised to pay for my first tattoo, so I've already decided to get one :)

well, my search for a tattoo led me to that adorable fish. although I can't get it yet, I will remember this because I'm very fond of that design. and if I do get it, I will wear it with pride, I promise you that!

Hi..! I just wanted to tell you.. I love this drawing! I actually went and got it tattoo'd :).
So if you want to see the result of that, let me know XD.
It's just such a beautifull fish.
I never knew it was called bowie, but from now on I'll introduce it as Bowie :D!

And yes, I am asking permission to have Bowie as a tattoo. I wouldn't have him edited though.
May I? (:

your tat (and mine) is now property of Mozilla...

I guess I should join the bowie the fish tattoo club. : ) Thanks for the design. I really love it. The tattoo isn't dead on to your original drawing, but that's what makes him unique!

Berkely huh? People from Berkely seem to be really creative and cool. So many great bands seem to have come out of there as well Must be something in the water, but anyway...
Love this design its cute enough to make me barf lol no, but seriously so many people seem to have got this inked, Jesus thats flattering!
Im sure you wear the original Bowie proud. x

This is kinda random. (not the fish, what i'm about to say) Bowie reminded me of a plastic fish i got from Chuck E. Cheese, i named him octavian though.

when my daughter was born, i made a mobile out of mini fish such as that you are referring to. I hung it over her crib and now she is obsessed with goldfish. octavian is a nice name.

i was very unsure what to get as my first tattoo so 6 months ago i saw this goldfish and got it done...im not one for making on the spot decisions like that but i havent regretted it once. its done in black and gray shading with selective colouring. tomorrow i go in to get some peonies and water around it. thank you, you have inspired my half sleave!
