You are welcome to use it as a tattoo, I don't mind. The person it was made for has passed away, but from an accident - unrelated to what this was for. But she was a sharing person, and I know her spirit would be honored to know others out there are appreciating it. Please, feel free to use it. All I ask is credit given and if you are able to share a pic of the tatt, so I can show it off. :)

Hello, I just wanted to tell you that I like this piece and have drawn something that looks like this but not an exact duplicate. I have it in my gallery if you'd like to see.

I wanted to know if it would be permissible to use this image as part of a book cover. I would purchase the photo, naturally, and I would give full artistic credit on the copyright page and link from my website to yours, but I wanted to make sure that in purchasing the photo it would be permitted to include it on the cover and interior of a novelette that I'm publishing. I'd be happy to show you my prototype cover so you can see it in context.

 

My name is Quincy Allen, and I'm a cross-genre author.  I have a novelette about a reclusive father who is reunited with a son he doesn't know, and in that reunion, a family secret with a connection to ghosts, American Indian legend, and the spirit world is revealed.

 

Is using the image in this manner possible?

Would it be cool if I got this as a tattoo for my shoulder?

I won't mind at all as long as you email me an image of the finished Tattoo. I would love to add that to my showcase. Thanks!

I was immediately drawn to your graphite drawing when I saw it. I am part Mi'kmaq and I think your piece is one of the most beautiful medicine wheels I have seen put onto paper yet. I have been planning a tattoo related to my ancestry for quite some time, and your drawing has inspired me with some of the ideas I wished to incorporate into the construction of such a tattoo.

That sounds awesome, and thank you so much. Did you get this tattooed?

No I didn't get your particular piece tattooed but I did use it and your dream catcher piece as sources/inspirations for my tattoo. Both of your pieces have a very natural feeling... they feel as though they are living pieces. Those were the main concepts I wanted incorporate into my tattoo - nature, life, vibrancy. Thank you!
