Modblog has a history of calling bullshit on tattooist who blatantly rip off other peoples work and use it as their own. In fact lots of you guys probably remember the modblog post from 2005 where Amina Munster’s chest piece by Tim Kern that was ripped off by another artist.
That seemed like a pretty blatant rip off, even with the subtle changes that were made to the original design. However, it pales in comparison to this atrocity.
When Cat Spencer came up with a beautiful Mucha inspired back piece for his lovely wife, Carla, she insisted on keeping the two shoulder blade pieces from her youth. Well when a FAR less talented artist blatantly ripped off here design, he too incorporated Carla’s old shoulder pieces in his rendition!
This is the original rendition on Carla’s back…
…and this is the atrocious rip off of her same design, INCLUDING the old shoulder pieces.
