I've been wondering about this for a while and being an avid watcher of the show Miami Ink since it's beginning, it finally happened.
I recognised an artwork that was going to be tattooed. What is the concensus on this practice ? The tattooer / parlor does make money based on another artist's work. Is *reproducing* the art accepted ? In this instance, Chris Garver worked from the painting of an artist he admires. Most of you know of Mark Ryden and this painting.
I don't want to start a flame war just was curious of what kind of "street justice" is currently running with tattoo art at the moment.
reminder : THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE ON PLAGIARISM OR ART THEFT.
