Steampunk Rose Tattoo Complete by Katay-chan Steampunk Rose Tattoo Complete by Katay-chan
Commission for my brother, hopefully if he likes it enough he'll have it tattooed on his arm. =D

My scanner for some reason couldn't catch the edges of the pages. ><;

Hi Katay,
Found this design rather by coincidence while looking for inspiration for a steampunk based tattoo (upperarm / half-sleeve). It is fantastic!! I was wondering if I could use it as a reference? If you're okay with that?
Also: I'd love to see how it looks on your twins arm? Did he actually get it tattooed?

Sorry for the late reply, my internet is not the most fabulous. It is fine for you to use as a reference, my main thing is I don't really want people directly copying it if it can be helped.

And he did. [link]

Hi Katay,

Thanks for your permission. I wouldn't ever just want to get a copy. Something as personal as a tattoo should stay unique. Looks good on your brother btw.

I soo love this, my older bro asked me to draw something similar to this for his arm, I'd love to be able to use this as a reference but change the type of flowers flowers and a few tweaks to make it more Celtic like. Would it be alright if it's just used as a reference for my brother's tatt? You'd be the most awesome person ever!

Yes that's okay. I'm cool with people using this as a reference as long as some alterations are made, it is fine by me. ^^

Any chance you could send me an original of this? I'm looking to get something similar to this done, would rather ask permission than just grab this :) Thanks!

I'm sorry but I did this design for my twin brother, and I don't feel very comfortable handing out originals. But if you really want it for inspiration on your own tattoo you can print this image out with the watermark and show that to your tattoo artist for ideas. Cheers.

Well I designed this piece for my twin brother, which he has on his arm now.
We both would prefer that people not copy this design straight as it is, however using it as inspiration for a new design, or altering the original in some way to distinguish it apart from the original we both agree is okay. And some credit towards the original is appriciated if you choose to ink a new version of it onto your skin.

Because getting a new tattoo and telling guys and gals "Oh yeah it was totally my whole idea and design concept" is not very cool. :nod:
