I did this tattoo yesterday and thought I would share it with you and see what you thought about it.

That's awesome!!

Question: does inking GW art violate their IP laws? Do you need official permission?

That is exceptionally good. Is that the guys arm or leg?

Putting it on your skin does not, putting it on the wall for people to buy does.

In this case the client brought in the Skaven army book.

That looks awesome, plus it's not a bulldog! That's some great work, and probably a pretty devoted gamer.

That's nice to know. I wonder if it's true for other companies...

I've been thinking of getting a tattoo, and have been tossing up three alternatives. Either the Adeptus Mechanicus skull (like my avatar), the Van Saar "spider" or Mechwarrior's Clan Ghost Bear logo.

And the guy who got the tatt may not necessarily have been a gamer. I once showed some non-gamer friends of mine some pics from the Necro book, and they thought they would make some really cool tattoos.

The tattoo is on his outer forearm. And he seems to be quite the mini's gamer. He brought in his 40K Nurgle army which I thought was pretty cool. I also am trying to get him to come to our forums :)

As far as price goes, something like that normally runs between 250 to 350.

the best thing is inking your wrists. skin is so thin that you can actually feel the pain. i have two wrists inked.

the longest tattooing i experienced was 3 hours long tatoo on my chest. 5 mins of drawing silhouette, 3 hours of filling (guy had self made gun). the pain becomes pleasant, causes you to hallucinate, numbs your senses... as good as orgasm, maybe better.

tatoo yourselves people!

If you must get tattooed, I implore you, please go to a proffesional. Avoid home made tattoo machines and the people that use them at all costs.

However if it is too late, come see me. I specialize in fixing that crap.

Next week, I will post another picture of the Rat Ogre, this time healed. He came in yesterday and the tattoo is healing unbelievably well. No peeling, scabbing or anything else. Plus it looks ten times better with all the redness from the fresh tattoo gone.

Hmmm... this is an interesting question. McCragge, where did you hear this, because my gut instinct is that it is either wrong or in a gray, untrodden area of copyright law.

Well if anyone was going to sue anyone it would be Disney, and so far Disney has never sued anyone who had one of thier characters tattooed on them (after all it isn't like they can remove it) However they have gone after tattoo studios who displayed their characters on their walls for people to pick as tattoos.

If it is a violation of copyright to have these images tattooed on you, no one seems to want to pursue it legally that I am aware of.

But now you have me all paranoid :(

Interesting. I'm going to have to add this to the article I'm writing.

That's generally the way copyright works: something can technically be a violation of copyright, but no one really has an interest in doing anything about it, so it nominally stays in the realm of the "ok." All the same, if I* were a tatoo artist, I'd shy away from tatooing a picture of Mickey in sexual acts with Donald. It would be like tatooing "SUE ME" on the guy's forehead forehead.

That would be an interesting court order: "The court hereby enjoins the defendant from wearing short sleaves. . ."

Summary amputation!!! :lol:

Anyway, I wouldn't worry. I have seen quite a few people with GW inspired tattoos, including their own staff. I can't imagine the "GW hired goons" coming round to break your fingers.
