rocketeer tattoo by SeanE rocketeer tattoo by SeanE
READ THIS BIT FIRST ---> This is NOT my tattoo on my arm! I don't have any tattoos and certainly not this one..

Now read on...

So about 4 years ago I coloured this picture of the Rocketeer on a slow Saturday afternoon. Took me all of 3 hours ors so to do it and was just a quick throw-away kinda picture to do...

Since then it has simply haunted me all over the interwebs. I do a google search and it pops up *everywhere* it seems - certainly in many places where I have never posted it myself!! It is also one of my most viewed images in my gallery and has *the* most comments on it as well.

Now I get an email from a guy who's a die-hard rocketeer fan it seems to tell me and show me the tattoo he has had done of it on his arm and his intention to get a full sleeve done of rocketeer pics and he's asking me if I have anymore of them like this...!!!! (no btw..)

bloody hell...

original pencils are by :iconmistermoster:
inks by :iconmacuy19:

cheers
Sean

By the way... I really love the work.. sorry for just taking it without asking permission. I sincerely apologize. I hope you will like how the tattoo went... I really believe that it deserved a good one. Thank you.

Well, at least he knew it belonged to you. I hope you told him he should have asked to use it first.
I've seen other stuff from artists on DA floating around the web too. I saw this piece by Scott Campbell over on a icanhazcheezburger site. I asked him if he had permission from Scott to use it, and he pretty much blew me off. I still don't know if I should point it out to Scott, the site has since been taken down.

very pretty :) but you shouldn't be mad at the guy for getting the tattoo if you want to be mad at anyone you should find out if the tat artist is claiming it as his own design...

its a bane of all artists, the things we like the least is what editors/everyone else in the world; like the most!
