How Tattoo Inspiration Should Be Done

How Tattoo Inspiration Should Be Done
hey guys how are we doing very well in today's video i am going to do a video on reference photos or making reference is out of other people's artwork or

tattoo

s i've

done

a video series a little bit like this uh where i featured some of your guys's reference photos and then how your

tattoo

s had turned out which was awesome i think i did two videos on that and then i kind of just like left it alone for a bit but um if you remember a couple of weeks back i uploaded a video talking
how tattoo inspiration should be done
about my pizza pinup

tattoo

that i got nearly two years ago from a

tattoo

artist called danny quapo danny quapo is a really awesome traditional

tattoo

artist here in england and yeah unfortunately a

tattoo

artist in america copied my

tattoo

well it was almost a copy there was like one or two changed elements within the copied

tattoo

and it was just so identical i had a few comments from people saying well it's changed so it's like it's

inspiration

and no that was beyond

inspiration

in my opinion it was just it was so close so a few of you guys started designing your own pizza pinup like artwork or even

tattoo

s i'm not sure what you guys will be doing with these but i don't mind because they all look so different it's all good but yeah a couple started like trickling in into my tagged photos on instagram and then a couple of people were posting in my facebook group and then some people were sending me like uh messages on instagram and you know tagging me in
their instagram stories and i was just like oh my god okay so there's been quite a few here this is awesome i can maybe turn this into a video so i put a post in my facebook group saying hey if you have designed a pizza pinup can you pop them down here in this sort of like post so it's easier for me to manage and i ask for people's instagrams and stuff like that like i wanted to credit the people that are doing this and then loads more started coming in and i was just like oh my god
i have to do a video on this because you guys have spent so much time doing this so i thought it would be a good video to show you guys what

inspiration

truly is and then we'll look at my pizza pinup

tattoo

copy and we can see it's just it's not

inspiration

okay not 100 copy definitely not

inspiration

we cannot use the word

inspiration

when it comes to that

tattoo

copy situation we just can't it's not that's not it so let's go through these um i'll probably just
brush through them quite quickly because i have a lot and i don't want to exclude anyone okay yeah the first one that i saw i think i'm not sure does it really well uh it's from georgia and she did this hello cool obviously pizza pinup

tattoo

and i think she kind of like based it on me a little bit i'm just looking at it yes there's my

tattoo

s on there okay i didn't even notice that for the first time that's awesome yeah she's got my back

tattoo

ing now i wish i
had that figure holy that would be amazing um but yes so she's got the exact kind of same pizza it's a little bit different in places um but again that's what it's like to take

inspiration

you can take elements from it just not the whole thing you know she did the petty crown because i said i

should

make a petty ground which is really awesome but yeah this is

inspiration

she's taken my

tattoo

taking a few elements here and there and then just like it's so different
compared to my one you know but you still got the same elements like it's anyway and this one's from hoshi underscore q underscore one probably saying that wrong so with this one the same elements that are from my

tattoo

are the blue

tattoo

s like the color of the

tattoo

s from my one um the hairstyle is somewhat similar but not really the colors changed anyway there's the petty crown there which is awesome the pizza is somewhat similar also the shoes are completely different and the
outfit is somewhat similar also they're more of like a booty short my pizza pinup has like um bikini briefs kind of sort of um but yeah again if you put these side by side completely different you can see where the elements have been taken but this is

inspiration

not a copy okay this one is from phoebe and this has a very classic like 1950s feel to me so what's different here is i'm gonna say the hairstyle is different it's still like wavy but you know it's it's different
uh the positioning of the body is also very much different it's very different the lady is sitting down there's no

tattoo

s here there's no shoes here the outfit is completely different the face is also very different the pizza also very different again you can see it's been inspired by my

tattoo

but it's my who's different like so so different um and i love this this is so oh it's just cute i'm getting such like 1950s vibes from this i'm all about it okay this
one is from rachel and she has designed this like i don't know this is this is just cool oh i'm reading her comment and she said decided i am unable to draw women or legs so i drew danny fenton in ghost form he'll be floating pizza above his hand but i'm having a few difficulties figuring out the hands and the arms i think she did a really good job this is really good i love that but again we can see very similar differences like this is miles away from mine but again you have
the pizza there that's it again

inspiration

like this is miles away okay this one is really cool and this is from daniella and if we investigate here okay this is so cool so we've got a petty crown again which i love uh the pizza has the same kind of toppings it has the same kind of crust uh the outfit is completely different this pin up has tights on the hair is completely different it's like a shorter version of what my pizza pinup has the face is completely different the
positioning is completely different like this this we're not even you know halfway through the video and i'm already like like this is how we do it this is how we get inspired guys this is just like if there's any

tattoo

artists out there that love to copy other people's artwork what are you doing what are you doing friend like there's people out here that just like draw for a hobby or whatever and they are smashing it like this one is really cute and i have to put this in it
because effort you know this is from darby and he just drew like a a pizza with a face i thought like this is too cute not to feature in here like he's put his time in i don't know i just had to feature this because that's a cheesy pizza and we cannot go wrong with a cheesy pizza we love a cheesy pizza up in this house and this one's really awesome from hazel she said not as much actual art and i ran out of digital page and couldn't figure out how to fix it without google so
here she is and amazing just amazing i love it okay this one i'm gonna butcher your name i'm so sorry uh lisette lizette i'm sorry if i'm butchering that like i'm sorry she said i mean clearly i can't draw very well or even keep proportion but hey it gets the concept across i i mean better than what i could do i think this is really cute so don't put yourself down but what we got here okay so what is different i mean everything is different in here so we have a pizza
box in here as an added element which is hiding the girl's booty i love that it's quite modest it's like a modesty pin-up

tattoo

because pin-up

tattoo

s are classically quite exposed you know they're quite sexy and there's quite a few people that feel like that's kind of like sexualizing women or whatever to do this kind of image on you which is fair enough i can see that point mine wasn't anything to do with that i just like pizza and i thought it's a good way of
how tattoo inspiration should be done
expressing my love for pizza honestly but um i like how this is quite a modest pin-up

tattoo

and so she's wearing a bikini bottom she's kind of this gives me like 90s vibes so you know like clueless and stuff like that where you know everyone was always on their house phone in the 90s i'm a kid of the 90s i grew up in this kind of era and it was kind of like that thing where you would like lay on your bed or lay on the floor and you talk to your friends for hours on the house phone
i'm getting this kind of vibe from it it's so adorable uh again yeah there's so many different elements here but it still gets the same message across you know you've still got the girl there with the pizza but it's completely different okay this one is from i am so sorry i'm gonna butcher this name as well i think eel eel i'm getting strong amy winehouse vibes from this i'm not sure if that's the case but that's just how i'm interpreting it again
completely different to mine so the

tattoo

has

tattoo

s or the design has

tattoo

s there's boots there she's wearing like a bustier she's still holding the pizza completely different pizza to mine but again we have all the same elements that mine has but it's completely different okay this one is from jordan and she said i certainly tried and i don't know why people put themselves down this is so much better than i could ever do honestly so i i relate to this this is me trying
to seduce my boyfriend honestly like come on now like this is iconic but yeah so the difference is here the design has

tattoo

s again but they're completely different to mine or what have you this even has a

tattoo

that says pizza on it amazing the pizza is different the positioning is completely different the hairstyle is different the face is different just everything is different again if you put this against my

tattoo

you wouldn't even be able to say it's a copy no way absolutely
not okay this is from oh my gosh i'm gonna probably butcher this one as well i'm so sorry uh my nilbo my neo bro i'm so sorry she said first try at a pinup girl ever this is so cute oh my goodness this is so adorable so there's a lot of differences here again obviously the girl is holding the pizza in her hand but she's sitting on a stack of pizza boxes that's a really cool creative idea oh my goodness i'm only just realizing this but like the design has pizza

tattoo

s
again completely different to my one the hair is a teeny bit similar it's like not even close like not even close but it's got that sort of flowy long-ish hair and it's quite like vintagey in some way uh but again not comparable completely different to mine

inspiration

yes so this one is from christine and she's

done

two which is really cool and they're both very different from one another so again like you guys are just knocking this out of the park like you're so
creative i'm shook honestly so the first one that she did here is again i'm getting these like 1950s vibes maybe even 1940s you know like oh my goodness like way way back in the day where people would wear like dresses like in the sea and stuff what era was that i don't know what era that was but like before like bathing suits and stuff like that people would wear like literal dresses in the sea i'm getting that kind of vibe anyway um so there's somewhat similar they're
somewhat similar i can't say that word similarities oh my god what is happening similar some the things that are similar the design has blue ink

tattoo

s the hair is somewhat similar not really but it's like sort of like wavy in the way it's sitting on the

should

ers the face is almost kind of sort of not really like mine like it's got the blue eyeshadow a little bit of blush but the eyes are completely different the positioning of this pizza pin up is also completely different to
mine and it's just so cute i love the outfit on this so so much and here's the other one from christine so with this one the pin up is kind of just chilling laying on the floor like oh my god yes here i am with my pizza loving life like relatable uh the outfit is completely different with this i love that outfit stunning fashion hello the

tattoo

s on this design are also green which is really cool charge that is i love that same person has designed the same kind of design if that makes
sense like they're the same thing but so different like if one like why can't

tattoo

artists do this you know like why are we out here copying other people's

tattoo

s when you know christine over here has

done

the same kind of thing but they look so different like it's not hot i mean for me being creatively inept it's hard for me i cannot draw i would not be able to do this ever at all but for creative people like you guys artists and

tattoo

artists surely this it's easy
for you right no i don't know anyway this one is from maude and she said thanks to this i just learned how much i love drawing tiny

tattoo

s oh they're so cute and with her one so she has the blue ink

tattoo

s on her design and she's

done

a modesty pizza so the pizza is being held over her butt crack which i love so much i love that so much um the hair is quite vintagey this kind of reminds me of like a really fancy plate i don't know what they're called but there's a
certain type of plate that is white and then it's got like blue designs on it it's giving me that kind of vibes but like really edgy really cool like i would love a plate like this i would probably put it on my wall you know you can get those things where you can hang up plates on the wall my nan used to do that which was strange okay the next one is from adron i'm probably saying that wrong as well i'm so so sorry adrian so what we have here is a pizza pinup

tattoo

i'm
getting like 1950 vibes from this also and she's kind of like playing up to that stereotype of like a housewife in the 1950s but instead of hanging out clothes she's hanging out pizza that is such a cool spin on like the 1950s era

tattoo

s and the way life was back then love the outfit on this also so we've got like the high-waisted shorts and then an orange top and then the earrings match the orange top also which is such a cool little touch like little details like that i love so
much the things that are similar with this compared to mine is this one also has the blue hazy background uh spiderweb elbow

tattoo

that that's that's that's it pretty much so obviously this is not comparable to mine at all this is completely different like this is such a completely different design and i just it's so creative i love it the next one we got here is from ellen and she has

done

something completely different here and she has

done

a portrait um but you've still
got the same kind of elements in there you've got the pizza there uh you got the blue sort of hazy background but other than that it's really really different but you've still got that sort of pizza pin-up vibe i love the headscarf in this i love the 1950s or maybe 1940s hairstyle i love the swallow on the neck also which is also you know doing a throwback to really old traditional style

tattoo

s like look at this and how awesome and different it is to mine why why we got people out
how tattoo inspiration should be done
here copying this one is from kylie she said yeah i did it i'm not a drawer but this is my best i'm gonna my interpretation of this is a person wearing a pizza dress right that's a cool idea i like it i dig it thank you this one is from chrissa and she said not good at currying but here's my sketch okay so what we have here is a pinup

tattoo

and she has a pizza on her head and then she's like trying to like lick it off or get a taste of it or a bite of it just by like using
her tongue so creative to come up with an idea like that so looking at this i can't really find anything that's like taken from my

tattoo

if that makes any sense so none of the

tattoo

s are the same the hairstyle isn't the same uh the shoes aren't the same so that's really cool not saying like the people that have taken stuff from my

tattoo

is wrong or bad or anything like that no this is like that's how you get inspired obviously but yeah i just think this is so different
and i just i just want to know like how did you think of this like artistic brains are mind-blowing to me this one is from jess and again i'm getting these sort of like 90s vibes you know when someone is just like laying on the floor they're on the phone and they're just chilling or maybe reading a magazine but we've got a girl down here who is just eating pizza like why not and she's in her lingerie and i love this so this one also has sort of like uh blue

tattoo

s on this
piece of work also jess said that what is in her hair is garlic bread hello like who doesn't order pizza and then get sides like she added the sides to this design which is again a such a creative input everyone every single one that we have seen is so so different and the next one we're going to look at is from victoria and we have got like this is so cool it kind of reminds me of like again like a 1950s uh sign so if you think of like um like retro cafes or diners in america and they
have like advertising or whatever this has given me that kind of vibe it kind of looks like to me like something you would see on an advertisement you know to advertise like the best pizza in town type thing i think this is so cool so this design also has

tattoo

s uh the outfit is completely different the hairstyle is a teeny bit similar to my one not really though but it's got that kind of weaviness to it we got the same toppings as my pizza because we've got the mushrooms and the
pepperoni and the peas there but this is a drippy drippy cheesy cheesy pizza i love that the way the pinup is sitting or situated is completely different to mine the next one is from skye and she has drawn a nude lady unfortunately because this is youtube and youtube it's a little bit strict with this kind of thing i'm going to have to put little love hearts over uh the titty and the bush i don't know if drawing is seen as bad thing on youtube but i don't want to risk it because
could you imagine if this video gets taken down and then nobody gets to see your artwork like absolutely not so i'm putting little hearts over little things anyway so what we have here is a lady with beautiful colored hair very very long i'm getting like mermaid vibes apart from she's not really a mermaid because she has legs but anyway um and she's kind of it's just like an awakening you know she's just woken up from whatever planet she's from and she's just got
this pizza in her hand like holy this is the best thing that's ever happened to me you know the next one i've got here is from lalumby leland b um this i saw this on instagram again this is a nudie one up top so i'm gonna have to put love hearts in that area unfortunately because free the nipple honestly can we get there can we get to the through the nipple thing like it's it's not that deep but this is youtube anyway this is again so so creative so we have a pin up here
she's got the most amazing shoes they look really sparkly i'm getting like dorothy from wizard of oz vibes from this um but with a heel the tights are like a fishnet no they're not fishnet they're kind of like crisscross ones she has a pizza as an face accessory she's just you know put a face for a pizza why not we all have the urge to just cover herself in pizza sometimes don't we uh again completely different to mine really creative this is from rachel again he said
i'm contributing again with an actual pin-up this time and we also have another lady here in like a pizza costume but it's all the way through it's not just the face it's just like all the way through and she's also holding up a pizza slice and she's doing like a oh my phone's in the way she's doing like a piece sign as well which is again really really creative and this is quite i like this it's quite comedic in some way like with the pizza costume um but
it's also got that sort of 1950s pinup vibe also this one is from myra and she has

done

something completely different also oh my god is that hot sauce at the bottom there these like little details are so awesome um again we have a uh topless situation so again that's why the love hearts are there it's not part of the design and i like also the modesty pizza you know over the regions there the baby making regions i love that so cool it's quite classy and i don't feel like
it's like sexualizing in any kind of way none of this has been sexualizing in my opinion i think it's all about the love of the pizza to be honest i don't maybe it's just because i love pizza so much so that's why i love this this one is from riley and this is just so creative so i'm really much into space stuff i have an alien

tattoo

as well so it's speaking to me on so many levels we have a pizza planet out there in the background why not that needs to exist in real
life this pin-up is just you know on her spaceship oh well her pizza ship in her little glass helmet thing there and her outfit is quite futuristic also i'm getting sort of like mars attack vibes from this i don't know if any of you have ever watched the film mars attack but this is the kind of vibe i'm getting from it but mixed with a bit of pizza you know again this is completely different to mine we see the pattern here the next one is from miranda and she has

done

this hello
curvy babe living for it and those curves and a massive pizza slice i love just over here in the uk we don't get massive pizza slices it just doesn't but there might be a few places in london or whatever but like compared to the big slices you see that come from like america or whatever or italy we it's uncomparable it really is because i've had a few questions when it comes to my pizza pinup it comes to questioning the size of it like that's not realistic type thing and you
can get massive slices of pizza i've seen it on instagram trust me i've dribbled over it i love exaggerated pizza slices and i love how this is exaggerated um again with this drawing she has some

tattoo

s herself and she's got a little pizza

tattoo

ed there on her thigh and it's just so cool like the style of this is completely different to my

tattoo

also this one is from emily and we have a lady wearing a pizza dress here hello absolutely let's make that exist like lady gaga
did a meat dress years ago why has no one

done

a pizza dress yet i love love love the hairstyle on this it kind of gives me like early gaga vibes you know when she had like the bow in her hair was that made out of hair it might have been a wig i don't know but it's giving me that kind of vibe and we also have pizza boxes down here and also with this one she's got the like blue aura around her it's completely different it's much bigger it's like a round circle it kind of
completes the design really cool touch i also like the style of this it looks like watercolor maybe i don't know it looks like painted love that oh and also emily did an abstract version which is so cool i'm not sure what kind of paint this is but i love that so so much oh my god this is so artistic you guys are so talented the next one is from olivia and she has

done

a very seductive and sexy pizza pinup and what she's

done

here is she has a what i have been calling a modesty pizza
so she's hiding covering the uh lady bits with a pizza the things that are kind of similar here to mine it's just the

tattoo

s are kind of well they're not blue blue they're more of like a teal gray color like a hint of blue but not completely the hair is completely different the style of this is completely different this is like a digital drawing it's not like in traditional style or anything it's a bit more um 3d with traditional

tattoo

s it's kind of flat in some way
i don't know how else to explain it i'm just going to call it flat but this is a lot more 3d there's a lot more dimension to it this one also is wearing stockings that is a talent there holy cow how did you manage to get that like to look like stockings my mind is blown i could never ever ever do this like this takes talent oh my goodness holy cow um yeah the pizza just looks i just want to eat it honestly there's so many differences here not even close to a copy the next one is
from carolyn and she has

done

this hella cool curvy babe like hello awesome um everything is pretty much different here she's just holding a pizza slice the hair is different the design does have

tattoo

s oh this is so cool i can't get over how many ways you guys have

done

this like nothing has been the same at all oh my god okay this is so cool this is from lucy and she has

done

one of these like traditional fish in stocking things i don't know how many of you guys have seen this but
this is kind of like a traditional type thing but the fish is holding a pizza slice you guys are just so awesome and creative i l i love this i even love the little like anchor

tattoo

there as well it's such a cool detail and the stockings and the shoes like yes okay this one is from emma and what she's

done

here is put a lady down on a pizza or like a pizza bed or a pizza slice who knows oh my god could you imagine if you got pizza that was like the size of a human oh i'd love me a
bit of that but again this is so so different so creative so artistic i like what jennifer said said here's my attempt not entirely sure why you would hold a pizza over your head but that's how it turned out and i'm okay with it i'm 100 okay with it okay let's make a story up for this so this is a lady it's the 1950s her washing is out on the line she's just finished making pizza for her husband john okay and oh my god it's pouring down with rain there's no
one brother in sight oh my god shock horror okay the only thing she has to cover her hair that she has recently got

done

at the hairdressers is the pizza she sacrifices the one true love in her life her pizza to save her hair her perfectly set hair to get the washing in from outside in the torrential rain that's the story okay i made a story for you i hope you like it this is just the most adorable thing i love the hairstyle in this i love the color palette in this also it's really like
vibrant but there's a few like subtle colors with like the

tattoo

s the pizza is quite subtle and the background also has like this like haziness to it this one is from tara and she has

done

a super curvy pizza pinup but she's wearing a pizza bikini like where can i get me one of those i need me one of those this is so cool i like how the

tattoo

s are sort of in color as well i like the orange circle and the background the hair is really cool i like the string from the pizza i just so
awesome this one is from kat and we've got a black work style

tattoo

design here or design artwork i'm not sure what we're calling these i'm getting like 2 000 vibes from this like early 2000s it kind of reminds me of avril lavigne i think it's the hair i don't know but she's got this kind of like punk rock chic nurse to her but she's got these

tattoo

s and she's kind of like edgy but like the shoes are giving me like ballet vibes i don't know i'm just
getting like a mixture of vibes from this i love it so so much we also have the pizza down here sort of like doing a modesty type thing so we're kind of covering that area but she is wearing a like you need is unitard no what's it called bodysuit right bodysuit anyway um yeah really really cool designs and elements here okay unfortunately that was the last one yet again any instagram pages that i'm aware of that you guys have left on your posts or whatever on my post confusing um i
will leave them all down below with the names next to them so you guys that you know are interested in these people's art or you just want to say hi or whatever and um you know share some love on their posts on their instagram just give it a little click and go on about your day on their instagrams but yeah i thought this was such a fun idea to show you guys you know what

inspiration

truly is it is so lazy to just trace someone else's idea or design or artwork so i just thought i'd
show you guys it's you know so easy to take

inspiration

from someone else's designs and just completely mix it up make it very very different like if you saw all of these as

tattoo

s on instagram there's just no way you would be like oh my god that is lauren's

tattoo

ed it's just not comparable at all compared to the one that is very very very close to mine you know like all of these ones also are completely different to the one that is my copy or whatever do you know what
i'm saying like anyway i just want to say thank you to every single one of you that took time to draw something for this video or for me to look at and see you know what true

inspiration

is and to everyone that's watching this and it's still here uh thank you for continuously supporting me and uh yeah i don't know what else to uh say on this matter but i hope you guys are all doing very very well and until next video bye foreign
