At least it’s not a tattoo…

In regards to the previous entry’s first tattoo…

Hey Shannon,

Just a quick note on the "super emo" tattoo — Im 90% sure that Rob Dobi designed a shirt identical to that. It doesnt seem to be on his site anymore (if it ever was) so I cant be sure but Im fairly certain that is where this person got the idea. In fact, Im pretty sure that on this site (how to dress emo) created by Rob Dobi used to have the cutout heart shirt... I know that the difference between someones tattoo and a t-shirt is huge I just thought it worth mentioning for whatever reason. Robs work is amazing and well worth checking out regardless.

All the best,

Someone tell me again why copyright is even an issue?

Update: Matt was right; here’s a shot from Dobi’s page that another reader found:

I still like the tattoo, but cancel any of my commentary about it being an original design unfortunately…
