I’ve seen this photo at least two dozen times tattooed on different people, and every single tattoo artist has taken personal credit for it.

The original illustrator is can be found here and is pretty genius. The concept is so cool, but I just don’t know why people would want the same tattoo as so many other people…

What do you think? Say you found something popular online that you really, really wanted as a tattoo. Would you get the same piece as other people, or have your artist draw you up something new and different?

  9. agutogrowsinbrooklyn answered: Depends on the piece. If I like the concept then I’d have the artist run with it. If the art really REALLY hit me then I’d get a copy.
