Here’s a great article from TAM’s blog by Dawn Cooke that I’d highly recommend individuals check out. It’s not very long, but it conveys the message all the same. I see posts all the time on Tumblr, Facebook, and on various websites that I frequent where people get some kind of painting, drawing, or piece of art tattooed on them. While I understand someone’s appreciation for a particular piece of art, the idea of getting an exact replica of said artwork tattooed on them is something that doesn’t resonate with me. Art is a wonderful thing, but I appreciate tattoos that look like tattoos, not tattoos that are trying to mimic some other kind of art form.
