Or... you could hang prints on your wall and they`ll still look good when you`re old and wrinkly. 8-)

I see they`re using public domain stuff, I wouldn`t want to get sued either.

@ 3002-3038 - You`re right, it is their skin. But my point is copying other peoples art doesn`t make your copy art. You want to look like a bad coloring book, fine. But don`t glorify it as "art" when it`s just graffilthy.

Gerry.. shut the drat up. I don`t know if you have some personal issue with tattoo`s, but it`s their own damn skin, their own choice and it`s a hell of a lot better than most of the crap people get tattooed on their skin.

Stop acting like a pretentious non-nice individual.

No. Copying art as a tattoo doesn`t make your tat art. If you have the same picture on a t-shirt is that t-shirt "art" ? ... No, of course not.

These tats are, at best, pretentious snots trying to look like they are interested in objects d`art. At worst they`re just copies of other pictures permanently scratched into your skin.

The one with Frida is amazingly good. There are artists that would have a hard time recreating that with graphite or charcoal.

There`s a way to make a better woman. Just add a couple more F-holes.

@Runemand The correct term for the holes of that shape on the body of violins, cellos, violas and the like, is, believe it or not, `F-holes` ;)

Imagine what the reaction would be if you took off your shirt at a Yakuza meeting and you had that Bob Ross tattoo on your back.

I never understood the appeal of that Warhol soup can. I drew a Budweiser label once in equal or better quality than that. Am I famous? Noooooooo!

The girls back with the ... uh ... violin holes ... is awesome.
