Thank you, guys~ I should probably post this on Dick’s tumblr but I’ll need to dust the cobwebs off it first. Dick’s birthday was spent with many fireworks (SO many), adventure through the city and an almost battle; myself and four other security guards against 30 drunk Puerto Ricans shooting off fireworks right over our property (fire hazard). Imagine the ever-excited Dick with handcuffs ready and a grin at the prospect of getting punched. It would mean legally being allowed to tackle and arrest someone. Things didn’t turn out with a fight, but the excitement of drunken fools and fireworks did last until well past sunrise. Followed by the best full-day sleep I ever had.

Cheers, my friends ♥

So kind! Dick thanks you with the bursting joy of a fireworks display. He misses his sidekick, Meisceoir Gaelech

Yes, things are going pretty alright in my life. I’m comfortable enough but moving forward very soon to something new. I’ll write all about it tomorrow and probably post on my DA like I did last year for Dick’s birthday. Thank you for asking~
I miss you and everyone else from our group.

Again, your dad is a penis-blister for making you pay half of everything when you’re his kid. His father-skills are bad and he should feel bad.

Penis-blister made me laugh so hard just now

Oh, the array of insults I know~

Kiss me!

So this reminded me of some drawings I did myself a few years ago. It took me a while to find them again but it’s not as close as I thought. Oh well. Enjoy old pictures anyway.

When a thief steals art from a museum they’re breaking the Cultural Property Protection law. If someone runs up and steals a painting from your easel while you’re painting outside, that’s simple theft of property, much like stealing your chair. Both are breaking the law but neither are similar to getting a tattoo.And like I said, taking a person’s art and posting it on your own website with “This is my OC lolol” is different from this situation. But for arguments sake let’s say you do exactly that. You take my icon —which I drew myself and does belong to me— and you change the hair blonde, though you put it on your skin instead of on a website. Yes, I’d still want to hunt you down and kick your ass. I “give a shit” just like the other artists you’re talking about. But my first thought IS to kick your ass instead of bringing you to court because I still don’t believe you’ve broken a law. (this is what we’re debating about though)
Thieves that steal museum paintings and the canvas off your easel do so because they believe they can make money off of it. That’s what really classifies them as law-breaking “theft”. But if you tattoo it on your skin, you’re not going to make money off of it. You can make money off of stripping, maybe performing other acts, but your skin itself is not gaining you profit. Also, keep in mind that I’m focusing on the average person here, the kind that gets a tattoo and doesn’t go around saying they drew it themselves. If the person isn’t claiming to have drawn the picture and they’re not peeling their skin off to hock it, then can it really be art theft?

Thank you, anon. This was something on my mind but no one questioned it so I didn’t take the time to explain. I welcome any other views you, or anyone else, might have on this.

[In regards to my debate on tattoos and art theft]
I understand where that would be annoying, but I’m still not sure it’s theft. There’s plenty of your gorgeous artwork that I want on me (mybodyisready) and of course I would want to show it off (tweeting/tumblr/sleeveless shirts forever), but by showing the artwork freely it’s open to being saved, shared and, of course, pasted onto someone else’s skin. I would dislike this too if something uniquely made for me was copied shamelessly. Still, this is about theft. And the “thief” in in this situation isn’t taking the art you made and putting it on a website saying “this is my OC lolol”. The art is being put on a person’s skin. When I think about it that way it’s somewhat different. It just makes me question the “theft” part since it’s placement is so personal. Like printing the art out and taping it onto a jewelery box or gluing it on a hat. As crappy as it is, is it really breaking a law? Is it honestly court-worthy, sue them for copyright infringement, art theft to get a tattoo of anything?

I really liked your input, Foxy. I thought on it for a long while. It’s making my little debate very entertaining (even if it’s only entertaining to myself in the end XD). ♥

Tattoos Are Not Art Theft

soul-connoisseur:

If you want to change my mind then, please, explain it to me in a way that makes sense. Because so far no one has.

put it this way, if you take some art that you see from the internet and put it on your body without permission, you are, by copyright laws, reproducing…

Alright, but what about reblogging artwork that you like? Or let’s say you’re a fan of Pokémon so you print out a picture of Pikachu and paste it on your folder. People are able to do this without getting sued because of the fair-use doctrine (section 107 of the Copyright Act). It states that a picture can be shown and shared so long as the person showing and sharing does not claim to have created the art themselves and does not make a profit off of it.
From every person I’ve met with a tattoo, none claim to have been the artist of the work on their skin (nor do people generally assume that someone would tattoo their own art on themselves). I’ve also never seen someone selling their skin after tattooing either. And, of course, the obvious thing people don’t assume; that everyone with a tattoo of their favorite Pokémon actually got a hold of Satoshi Tajiri and asked for his permission to have a Charmander stamped on their rear. It seems a bit ridiculous to expect an artist to weed through all of that too.

(Thank you for your input. I really do want to debate on this. I promise I’m not some stubborn mule that won’t change his mind. Ha ha!)
