"It is an honour when people ask to have my art tattooed. A reputable tattoo artist will require a signed release from an artist in order to use their artwork as a basis for your tattoo. I am happy to offer these releases free of charge. Just get in touch with me via the contact page. While I will provide a release for free, please consider purchasing a Tattoo Permission Kit from me. It offers a small compensation to me for the usage rights, and you get a signed, full colour, frame-able, high quality print of the artwork (most web-based images are of low resolution and not a good basis for a quality tattoo). A Tattoo Permission Kit contains everything you need to take to your tattoo artist."
The kit includes:
- A signed Giclee print of your choice.
- A black and white copy of the image to assist your tattoo artist with shading.
- A signed release letter indicating that your tattoo artist has my permission to use the art.
