Oh My God...

I have akuni's hummingbird painting posted on my Deviant Art gallery...

... and someone asked today, if it would be okay if they took a print of it to their tattoo artist. They wanted it, cherry blossoms and all, as they'd been looking for a hummingbird for a really long time...

I'm... flabbergasted and gave her my consent. I'm still bemused at the thought of someone carrying my art on their skin for the rest of their lives.

I've had people ask for permission (and to custom design some, too) to use my doodle/art for tattoo, too. I can't imagine what their motivations are, because I for one, certainly wouldn't put any of my doodle/art on my own skin, let alone live with it for the rest of my life, unless I'm willing to submit for more pain of removal later...

Just be flattered that someone likes your stuff that much. :D It's a compliment.
