Your Art as TATTOO? What to do when you get this request

My Artworks as TATTOOS

Lately I have received an increased number of requests from people that like my art asking permission to use my artworks for a tattoo. I am happy that people like my Art as much to decide to have it permanently inked somewhere on their body.  I consider this request a great and wonderful honor, I am thrilled and humbled that someone is thinking to use my existing paintings or illustrations for their tattoos! Well, as visual artist this open another window into my art. I love tattoos and  this is the opportunity with this post to inform and talk about a few important things. What to do with a request like this? If you’re an artist, or, if you are the person interested to get the tattoo.  There is something very important to be aware of, and is that people cannot just save an image of an artwork over the internet and take it to the Tattoo Shop to  have it tattooed. Some Tattoo artists only works on their own custom creations and most of all they do not copy another tattoo artist work. They are a bit more open when you bring your favorite visual artist work to be recreated having the permission from the artist. So, what to do then?  There is a mutual respect of the Copyright  between a tattoo artist and a visual artist, no one wants to do a “Copyright Infringement” while recreating without permission an existing artwork that is not custom created by the tattoo artist you choose but created by another artist. Then, not everyone knows that if you’re going to bring your favorite artist artwork to have it tattooed it’s needed the artist “Permission”. All you need to do is to obtain your permission in advance, by contacting directly the artist, or find out if he/she sell a Tattoo Pass/Ticket on their website or shop. What is a Tattoo Pass or  Tattoo Ticket? Artists sell the permission letter to use their artwork as tattoo often nothing is shipped and they send a downloadable PDF for you to print. When you purchase the Pass or Ticket, it’s your kind way to pay and support the artist work and art.

About me, I have been thinking at a nice way to grant my tattoo permission to who is interested. I have created and released my TATTOO Permission Pack!
My Pack includes the personal permission letter and a beautiful hand enhanced print of my artwork you want to be tattooed.

I really appreciate if you ask permission in advance is a great act of support and kindness!
I own the Copyright of my work as Artist ©Carolina Russo any unauthorized reproduction or use without my written permission is in violation of the U.S. Copyright law.
I am happy to grant you a Tattoo Permission for my Artworks to be inked, but before you go on, there are few details that you need to know, please make sure to read my Tattoo Policy.

Tattoo Policy:
1) If you love my Art please consider to support my work by buying (prior getting the tattoo done) my TATTOO Permission Pack  price is $55 + free shipping, which includes the written Permission a 5×7 inch print of the artwork you choose to get tattooed. My prints are hand enhanced and signed by me it would be a great reference piece for the Tattoo Artist and in the end for you to have my art in your home. This is the best way to support my work in a respectable and honest way. The print pack comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, the Tattoo’s Permission that allow you to get my artwork tattooed (it includes your name) Permission and image cannot be shared with someone else for another tattoo each Permission it’s personal.

2) Please use a reputable and serious Tattoo Artist and bring my “Permission Form” with you because a serious tattoo artist will ask for it. Do not alter, transform or manipulate my image in any way, the only option I allow is to accommodate you if you want the tattoo to be in “Black Shading” instead of my original colors. In that case you have to let me know when you purchase your Permission Pack.

Watercolor – Queen Flower

Queen Flower – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


Exploring a new idea 

Today I am excited to share with you one of my latest watercolor painting having the title  ” Queen Flower”.
I painted in my traditional signature style in watercolor and ink but this time not on the usual watercolor paper. I came across this 10 inches diameter paper lace doily at home and my first thought was to make a ink drawing on it! I love to explore new artistic and creative ways to paint, testing papers or surfaces and see how watercolor works especially on unusual ones! I am always driven to try new techniques and materials. I have to say that the combination of watercolor and ink pen did work really well without any bleeding through the paper! I am happy and pleased with the outcome! The watercolor looks great on this paper doily, the original painting is lovely and would look great with a floating frame.  I will sure create more paintings on paper doilies in the future.

The Original Painting is Available for sale!

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop

Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell is hosting a Music – Art Charity Auction for the Deaf Academy

Music and Art together for Charity…

Wonderful Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, 90s Shoegaze pop music artist, has organized a Charity auction fundraising for the new UK, Devon’s Deaf Academy project to open on April 2020. Rachel Goswell is personally involved with the Academy and sensitive to the problem of hearing impairment because affect her 9 years old son Jesse.  Rachel and her husband Steve Clarke recently formed “The Soft Cavalry” released their debut album which includes the song “Bulletproof” and the interesting and beautiful Video  performed by the duo in sign language.

The Soft Cavalry – Rachel Goswell and Steve Clarke performing in Bulletproof Video

Rachel Goswell expressed her motivations behind the Bulletproof video in a press release: “For a long time now I have wanted to do a video that incorporates BSL (British Sign Language) due to my son being Profoundly Deaf with no hearing. He also has additional needs with CHARGE Syndrome that brings many added complications. I live within two worlds both Hearing and Deaf; and have learned a lot in the last nine years about the many barriers Deaf people can face in our society. One of the main points I was taught very quickly is how music is accessible to Deaf people. Of course music can be felt through vibration but visually I feel so much more could be done to enhance the experience. We made this video with the support of Sign Up BSL to translate ‘Bulletproof’ so that the song flows properly in BSL. Sometimes with signing videos – they can be a literal translation of the words (Sign Supported English) which will make little sense to the Deaf viewer. Our hope is that we have achieved this and also that one day as my son gets older and develops his language skills he will be able to understand this song.”

During the past couple of months since Rachel announced the donation of one of her guitars, numerous bands and artists connected with her. She gathered and will auction off amazing generously donated items from great bands, musicians and creative artists. The auction lots  includes unique Music and Art collectibles, memorabilia signed items, screen prints, set lists, shirts, jewelry, signed albums and lots more.  Just to name a few, Rachel Goswell donated one of her loved guitars signed by Slowdive members, the band also donated a variety of rare items.  A long still growing list of over sixty unique items is ready for the upcoming auction, includes donations from The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Mogwai, The Cult, Low, Ash, My Bloody Valentine and many more.

I am honored that I was able to contribute and donate my art for this great cause, give help for deaf children to have a new beautiful place. I have donated two prints a “One Of A Kind” Limited Edition Fine Art Prints of my recent watercolor paintings a portrait of Robert Smith “THE CURE” and of Frightened Rabbit -Scott Hutchison Tribute. Prints are OOAK Hand Enhanced with gold ink and feature hand written words from favorite songs! Since Rachel shared them on her Instagram I can share them here in preview.
