My Favourite Tattoo Got Copied

My Favourite Tattoo Got Copied
hey guys oh we're doing it very well in today's video I am going to talk about an unfortunate situation and I'm just bummed out about the whole thing honestly like there's no I don't know how to put into words how I feel about the situation because a part of me is just like no whatever it's fine and then another part of me is like ah for sake like can we not but do you really have to do this so anyways so as you can probably tell by the title one of my

tattoo

s has been
my favourite tattoo got copied
somewhat

copied

it's it's not identical but it's it's pretty close if you ask me so I've made a few videos about

tattoo

copying and why I think it's a bad idea and why you should do it a quick little run down though quickly briefly reason one is you know you could be copying a

tattoo

that is personal to someone you know like my

tattoo

that has been

copied

it's personal to me I have reasons as to why I got it another one like this situation is this

tattoo

s custom
drawn I've paid for this because it was custom drawn it's my ideas and the

tattoo

artists ideas rolled into one and their artistic abilities because I have absolutely none the

tattoo

artists that made this you know I gave them money and that's how they live that's how they survive and and then you get you know another

tattoo

artists come along and they just you know take that idea no creativity at all and you know they just steal that idea and they don't put any effort into
it that's just not cool there's so many other reasons as to why you just shouldn't take someone else's art like why would you want someone else's artwork on you to start off with like seriously I know you see things you're not holy that's really nice because trust me every day I see a

tattoo

and I'm like holy why didn't I think of that but you just gotta let it go you know it's not like Instagram is in a catalog for you to go through or Pinterest or
wherever don't even get me started on Pinterest don't even get me started because I think this is where this girl stole my

tattoo

and I there is people out here on YouTube stealing Pinterest Pinterest

tattoo

s and other people's

tattoo

s and we're maybe we may make a video on that I'm sure I think a couple of you may know what I'm on about with stay tuned I've had a couple of comments saying like oh I would find it you know complimentary or flattering that someone
would want something I have and it's no I paid for this for me not for other people I didn't pay for this idea in this design for you guys to take Joey not you guys I know you didn't take it but for other people I didn't pay for this for you to have it join me like off no this is mine that's like buying some all work and then your friend taking a picture of it right and then they go home print it out and put it in a frame by yourself get your own art working even though
most artwork is mass-produced or whatever but say you got a custom print or whatever and then someone comes along and they're just like oh that's nice who did that take a picture print it out put it on the wall it's just like I actually paid for this for myself you know it's just tacky cheap don't do it okay yeah anyway I'm gonna be going off on one in this video yeah I've made video it's also about taking other people's

tattoo

s or artwork and then getting
inspired by them or thinner them to your

tattoo

right and then they make up their own version of it I think I've done like two or three videos on that and that is the good way of taking someone else's

tattoo

your artwork and making it your own it is absolutely 110% okay to use other people's

tattoo

s or artwork as reference a reference that doesn't mean you take it that's not what reference means that literally like references like you'll take a little element from it here
like say for the

tattoo

that I've had

copied

you know maybe you'd like the pizza or you like the fact that the pinup has

tattoo

s itself you know you can take the little elements like that but you cannot take the whole thing that's not it's not okay but yeah if you want to know more about that or whatever I'll leave links down below to that so let's get onto this situation so obviously from the title and thumbnail whatever you know the yeah pretty much my favorite

tattoo

has been

copied

for the most part it's not 110% identical there's a couple of elements that are slightly different but yeah I got this

tattoo

you in the summer of 2017 I think it was it's done by Danny capo who is very well known he's a very very talented traditional

tattoo

artist he's known for his bold colors his bold line work and he does a lot of pin-up

tattoo

s also and that's why I went to him for this because I saw a couple of his

tattoo

s I think it was a circus
like is it called a ringleader

tattoo

I saw that and I was just like holy and he kept making more like I need one from here and like obviously on my own and I sent him you know my ideas and you know what I wanted and he was like yep let's do this and he created just everything I could ever imagine and more you know when you get a

tattoo

ing you're like holy this is so perfect like bless me I get to earn this on my skin you know you're so excited you're so happy that this is
yours forever and it's done by not if you really love and respect and it's just everything and that makes it meaningful also it's a sucky situation so let's go into how I found out about this so someone who lives in the area of this

tattoo

artist slash

tattoo

studio posted the photo of my

copied

tattoo

to my facebook group I'm not gonna use names or anything like that but that's how I found out it was posted into my facebook group so thank you to that person I'm
obviously now well I'd rather know than not know to be honest I know it sucks to know but I would rather know then it's happened than not um I saw it I was just like yeah I wasn't amused at all I commented on it saying who is the studio or who is the eyes I was just like I wanted to know who it was I wanted to know what this artist was like what is his other

tattoo

s like like where is he from I wonder how he got ahold of this photo or was it the client look at all of it look I won it
I had so many questions running through my mind I was kind of like does this person that has this

tattoo

know who I am or you know did she find it on Pinterest because my pinup

tattoo

is on Pinterest quite a bit so I thought oh maybe it's from there and they don't actually know who I am so they don't know you know my feelings towards

tattoo

copying but then I was well maybe they just don't give a flying and they really like the

tattoo

I don't know yeah are we comment on it
my favourite tattoo got copied
saying who did this and I waited for a couple of hours and there was no reply I'm guessing the person was from America at different time zones whatever and I'm impatient so I put my years and years of watching catfish to good juice and I reverse image search the copy

tattoo

and it come up with a Twitter and it can't with an Instagram page and I was like jackpot I'm just gonna go ahead with this you know I'm just gonna run with it and cause a scene and I posted it to our
Instagram stories I posted it to my own Twitter and oh you guys some of you are funny about it you were just like holy so the first tweet I put out was what a glorious morning mine is the left one done in the summer 2017 and then the copy is next to it there's so many funny tweets I think the funniest one for me was by Maureen it said yeah you can copy my homework but don't make it obvious and the queen of anti

tattoo

copying capturing as always their only comfort in these situations is
the original is a billion times nicer which thank you inez true like all shade or tea it is true like I said when I did the reverse image search I found the Twitter of the

tattoo

studio so it wasn't the actual

tattoo

I couldn't find the touchy whites to start off with so I started kind of tucking the

tattoo

studio because they're kind of guilty as well we think about it like if you're hosting a notoriously known

tattoo

ice that copies people's

tattoo

s like what would you
expect like look through people's portfolios for sake before you hire them so I kind of tacked them that's probably immature of me but whatever I found that they tweed my copy

tattoo

and their caption was every man's fantasy then I was I was so petty I was like to copy someone else's

tattoo

don't think so far and then I found them on Instagram and then I started doing Instagram stories the bow there and then I commented on the

tattoo

studios Instagram where they had posted
the photo and I said I don't know what I said I don't think I actually even got a screenshot of it they've blocked me now and they have delete is the so you won't be able to find it I think I comment something along the lines of I really like this design it's so original sincerely the person that owns the actual original something like now I don't know what it was but which I took a screenshot now a couple of you guys that saw my Instagram stories was commenting on that
and then I think they deleted the post and then they blocked me or whatever but yes so that's not this video is all over the place I'm so sorry but shall we take a quick examine into the differences of mine so first of all - great all right it's a nice

tattoo

in my opinion it was very nicely done so if we look at the copy

tattoo

the face is pretty much the same but because the

tattoo

copy is bigger the face is gonna be bigger so the face is a little bit more stretched out a little
bit more fuller the hair flower is the movie is the exact same let's be serious the hairstyle is the exact same so we've got the curl there got it you know draping on the side so the

tattoo

s on the

tattoo

that are the same are the elbows one elbow the flower on the knees the same the sort of like tribal line work is the same yeah that's about the same when it comes to the

tattoo

s was on the

tattoo

let's talk about the pizza exactly the same the only thing that is missing I guess
is a few little bits of like bacon or whatever that is a mushrooms are exactly the same the pepperoni is the exact same they're all laid out in the exact same position the way the hand is is the exact same I didn't mention but the makeup on the face is the exact same there's also the blue sort of shadowing behind the pinup which is the exact same the shoes are almost the same they're just missing a little uncle strapless they're the only thing that's pretty much changed
is it's moved that to me is not no we've taken far too many elements to say it's inspiration there are too many things that are identical so to me the

tattoo

artist didn't take inspiration is pretty much oh I'm just going to move the pizza to the side a couple of inches add a arm that looks like a tentacle let's be serious that arm looks like a tentacle there obviously I know it's not direct copy but it's way past inspiration Joan I'm saying like this is
just not original I told like this is not an original idea it's far from it and I know for a fact that I do not own pin-up

tattoo

s holding pizza slices I'm sure there's a few out there but I can guarantee they don't look like the one that I have on my arm there's gonna be a lot of differences whether it's the hair the face the way they're positioned there's so many different factors you can do with a pizza pinup

tattoo

you know and this st. is firm like this is
know so obviously I caused an outrage a little bit on my Instagram and my Twitter and I was tweeting talking about it and you guys with DM and me saying oh my god this thing it's this like what the is going on here you know that

tattoo

is like one of your favorites like what is happening here why would someone do that and that's why I kind of think it's got nothing to do with someone that watches my videos or whatever I feel like it's some outsider person I don't know though
yeah I then started getting you know when you just mag and you just don't want to let something go you just yeah you're seething right you just like for sake why this happened and then I was like you know what just talking or comment in on the

tattoo

studio is not enough because maybe just maybe they are not aware of this

tattoo

artists shenanigans maybe they're just not aware okay so I was like you know I need to find the actual eyes that did them because on the post from the

tattoo

studio there was no ice tagged in it at all which is very weird in my opinion like why you're not tagging your

tattoo

artists hello I just did some digging you know like catfish took over me and I was like I am me why'd you say his last name Solomon Shulman or max Joseph like hello I'm Lauren hello it's my time to shine in the catfish world so I did some deep diving and the

tattoo

studio has actually a list of the artists in their bio which I never saw beforehand I kind
my favourite tattoo got copied
of just thought there was like folks like I'm never gonna find his eyes when I went back on there and then I went through the list and I stupidly started from the bottom and work my thing up because Canadia and I start from the bottom here there's like five or six artists listed on there so I clicked on the one went through the profile for a bit couldn't find the

tattoo

clicked on the next one wait for the profile can't find it and so on until I got to the top one and then the
top one obviously was the person that did the

tattoo

and I should have just clicked on that to begin with but hello I'm obviously not that good at catfishing MTV don't hire me just yet and and then yeah I found the artist and I commented on that pose that which again I don't have screenshots of sake while this was all going on we were still talking about the situation in my Facebook group and someone else had actually commented that they had found the

tattoo

artist and they had

copied

a artwork from me the Pinterest or somewhere on the internet I don't know I don't like this guy is a prolific

tattoo

copier he don't give a flying about other people's artwork at all and then I looked through his Instagram a few more times and it was very obvious that he he's not shy about copying touches like no you can just go through it and there's so many that you have seen before without a doubt i wouldnt be able to give you artist names or anything like that
but you know what you see attaching you like wait i've definitely seen that before or you've seen the artwork before so this artist has done quite a few disney remakes like an alternative disney remake where Snow White is holding a skull I'm sure we've all seen something like that on tumblr plenty of times eight years ago ten years ago whenever tumblr was in its heyday we've all been there tumblr was great not so much anymore I don't think they artists has actually
blocked me but we had a few worlds so he popped up into my message requests so when someone dmg on Instagram and you don't follow them they go into another folder which is your message requests which I wasn't going to be petty and show you guys these messages because it is an exchange between the both of us and I don't know maybe he thought this would be a private thing but after looking through his Instagram again after doing this exchange I was like nah fam you have done this too
many times for me to give you the benefit of the doubt because at first I was like oh you know what he seems kind of sincere he seems kind of you know what's the word I'm looking for genuine oh maybe it was a mistake and he just he was he needed the money or whatever and I felt kind of bad for him but then I looked through his Instagram again and I don't know there's so many more

tattoo

s that he's

copied

from other is whether the

tattoo

is or just general is so no I need a
petty crowd I should make a petty ground so he reached out to me and said thanks I'm not out here trying to steal people's are I will research the references people bring in more but I'm not a jerk or a dummy you could have just said something to me which I did I commented on the post so I knew these were on other people and I would have taken them down no problem and obviously I will research more when there's a question or the arts origin I said dude the pizza pinup

tattoo

is
an actual

tattoo

don't play that don't say you didn't know which is true the only sort of it's not a viral photo be the one'd photo of my

tattoo

is of the

tattoo

it's not a design the design was never posted anywhere like nowhere so he can't say he thought it was a bit of artwork where he didn't know it was another

tattoo

because the only known photo of my

tattoo

is on my skin it's me like this I'll flag it up here you can see it's on a person you
know that's not a robot it's not a mannequin that's clearly a person and even if it was a bit of artwork and you did think it was a

tattoo

it's still not okay oh I'm feeling all the rage right now and then he said I know it was a

tattoo

girly said it was her sisters but it's my fault I own that nobody's perfect dude but when AMF tells me something I should look into it I get it and then I said then if it was her sisters she would have gone to their eyes which is
true if you see a

tattoo

on someone you know you ask them and then you go to their eyes know or is that just me and then I carried on saying it's wrong what I want to not copy other eyes work do your trade some justice that

tattoo

was mine and the artists ideas and it's personal to me and now someone else is walking around with an almost identical copy if someone gives you a picture of someone else's

tattoo

you change it as much as possible to make it unique look I'm new tree
telling this is how to do his job I shouldn't have to do that it's not my job like my opinion my job is to guide you guys the clients as to you know what is good and bad when it comes to getting a

tattoo

not an artist you should already know there's no y am I asking too much here probably and then he said I love our culture and I respect where

tattoo

ing comes from I'm not intentionally be in my uh-huh I'm not intentionally be in my a scumbag at all okay I apologize if I
offend anyone I'm just looking to be a good artist one day and during the day today walk-ins is a part of it I agree and again I accept my responsibility my back no this is when I started to be like oh okay I feel like a bit of a dick maybe I don't know I felt a bit bad and then I said well a good artist does not copy and paste you need to come up with your own unique style if you want to be known no one will give you the time of day if you get a reputation and art and a art thief
I've messed that up I think it's and if you're an art thief he then said I get it and I don't want that reputation people have stolen my original stuff too so I know how it feels and I said then why do it hello wake up I don't understand art or art is limitless which is true there is no there is no limit to our you can create anything anything like there is no limitations with art like why are you stealing / copying tracing pretty much taking someone else's artwork when
you have free rein there's no one there saying you have to copy this nobody he said honestly I was just trying to keep the client that is what they wanted and seemed legit from now on though I don't know I'm a draw it myself I don't want to steal stuff when I can draw I said okay cool because I just I could not be bothered with his anymore I could not be bothered to tell him how to do his job anymore it's not my job but then that's when I went on to his profile game
scroll through and notice those of you know

copied

artwork and him taking heavy inspiration from other stuff I had seen years and years and years before and I was kind of like this guy like literally this guy I cannot be with you you know I'm not describe into that newsletter anymore and then I had a few GM's from people who knew this

tattoo

is like that it's a small world out here honey I have my sources and he is known for doing this pretty much like people know of him for
being an absolute scumbag if you go through his profile on Instagram it he's got this much that says Cosmo whatever his Instagram name is because people are always hating on him and he's trying to play up to that and say oh everyone hates me I'm making much I have a bad reputation so he knows what his reputation is he's saying to me like a single person you know I'm sorry I would never do it again bla bla bla hell this it's like a cheating boyfriend or I'll never
do it again I'm sorry I wasn't aware oh I'm so sorry that I hurt you I didn't mean to offend anyone when he knows what he's like and what people see him as so honey you can try and clean up with me but hi hello welcome to the world of treacle tarts where my voice is a little bit louder than yours PS look through his Instagram page there is women wearing boots like he sexualizes women so hard and there is nothing wrong with people posting photos of their butts that it's
whatever but it's so seedy when it comes from a man's profile and he's like hey wear this take photo with this like show me your booty I'm putting it on Instagram you know it's hahaha so we have one here that says I hate hit and then it's his instrument Andale and it's someone like throwing the finger up like mmm he's also

tattoo

ed buttholes which I literally don't have a problem with like if you want to get your butthole

tattoo

ed that's fine I'm not
gonna post pictures here because I don't want my channel to just like disappear flagging up you know butthole pictures but yeah he's

tattoo

ed buttholes and honestly like I'm saying I don't care if you have a butthole

tattoo

I just think it's one of those things that maybe possibly we shouldn't focus on it that much and maybe possibly we should put it on Instagram you know like something maybe you do we keep to ourselves like I don't know maybe it's just cuz
it's this guy like if one of you guys posted a photo of your butthole

tattoo

I probably wouldn't have an issue with it honestly it's just cuz it's this guy I get I mean how many you have seen this kind of artwork could anyone showing you like this but how many have you seen our work like this like come on now that's not original but all right then I'm not a hundred ten percent sure I've seen this before and then this so this is like the ultimate thing like what the
actual fun but he knows he has like this reputation but why like he's saying that oh you just wanted to keep the customer and he wants to be a good eye he doesn't want to piss anyone off okay fair enough start doing original ideas stuff with get rid of this you know tactical strategy if everyone hates me and here have my merch and take boobie photos and you know like if you look at like all these artists that are known for their individual ideas oh it's non baboso as always when it
comes to mind because to me his creativity and his style is just unmatchable if you want to be a known

tattoo

artists that is known for doing something or you want to have a following you want people to come to you because you're talented do your own our work come up with your own unique style company and other people's ideas and then having this attitude of everybody hates me because I'm I'm a scumbag is not working for you obviously so yeah I'd love to take your thoughts
and opinions on this I hope wrong doing okay and I will see you in my next video bye
