Rat Tat by Kiiro-chan Rat Tat by Kiiro-chan
I've been wanting to get a tattoo since I was, like, 13... but was never really sure what I wanted to get until about a year ago.

Haven't ever spoken with a tattoo artist, or been to a tattoo parlor, or anything, so I have no idea what the feasibility of me actually getting one is... but I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and would really like to get my first for my 21st birthday.

To sort of "prove" to myself that I'm serious, I drew up this design inspired by this adorable photo: [link]


EDIT: I don't think I'll be using this particular design anymore
but the tattoo I eventually get will still be rat-themed...

Hi,
I've been browsing tattoo designs (again LOL) and was wondering if you minded as I used this as an example, should I decide on getting a rat tattoo.  I'm wanting something like this holding a puzzle piece, or a rat running to stash a puzzle piece with my sons nick name on it.  My son is in the middle of getting his diagnosis for ASD- which is why the puzzle piece- well, unless I figure something else out.

<3 chaos.

Would it be alright if I used this for a personal character of mine? He is a rat, and this pose is absolutely adorable. I found the photo that inspired this first via Google..and just LOVE this! I'd obviously give full credit. <3

This is a really odd request...
Thanks for the compliments, and for asking at least.
But this wasn't made as an "adoptable," and using it for a "personal character" seems sorta... I dunno... lazy?
I guess if you're going to use it as such regardless then I can't really stop you, but I would rather you didn't.

Not really that odd when stuff like this is all around DA as well as FA and other art sites. lol
Its not lazy, I just like this pose and I am not good at cartoony type things like this..I don't know how or why that'd consider me being lazy..it was just a question and I wasn't being rude about it. You are the one with the full rights to this lineart, so I wont use it if you don't want me to that is all you needed to say.

I also didn't ask for adoptables, I asked for one of my new characters..simple as that. lol Oh well, was just a question I got my answer.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I didn't think you were being rude at all.  You're very polite, in fact.
I just thought it was an odd request.  The way you worded it made me think you would just use the unaltered lineart for your own personal character, and I don't really get why you would want to do that.
Now, on the other hand, if you want to use the lineart as a base and color it or change it some how to make it more your own, I'm okay with that.  So long as you give credit where credit is due for the base.

Alright thank you for commenting me back, I just never know how to react to people and some people get really angry with me when I ask stuff like this. I do appriciate this though, if I decide to in the future use this I will definitely make it my own~

So, SO, SO cute. I've been really wanting to get a tattoo (my 21st birthday is coming up in August, but I don't have any money unfortunately). I've always been thinking about getting a rat, but my friends are like, "A RAT? WHY?!" But that makes me want to get one more. :)

Thats so sweet! I just got two rat babies last month (and I just came back from my first tat about an hour ago lol), its nice to see someone that can make a rat look as cute as they are. Most ppl's automatic thought is "rats are gross"

ohs!! its so cute!!I would sugest getting it on your chest or shoulder, but i got one on my back and it hurt like a bitch but my bf got one on his pectoral and he said it didnt hurt that much.
Also I would say you should go to monster Ink (its off of rice street in st.paul. its where i got mine and garret( the guy who took care of me) is amazing and his prices are really good(I got the buddah on my back and it takes up half of my back and it cost me 145 and it really is amazing) if you want,they have a website at [link] (ask for gattett hes taken good care of a bunch of us whove gone there)
Just pleas please please, dont go to saint sabrinas. their really dirty and they do a sucky job.

Just don't get a tramp stamp. You have to think really hard about placement I always thought. Think about things like fancy events and what you'd like to wear and if you cared if it showed in certain areas. I've always toyed with the thought of getting a tattoo. I've said that if I get through medical school, I'd get the medical symbol (the snakes swirled around a staff) tattooed on my foot or something. I still don't know if I'd ever do it. But I think tattoos are fun anyways. That mouse is super cute too. If you do get it done, you'll need to take a picture to show us all. But don't get drunk and then get the tattoo...that's the best way to get dolphins jumping over rainbows and butterflies plastered all over your butt.

This is so cute! I love how you did the whiskers, this will make a great tat! Any thoughts on where you're putting it? And I have no idea where you live, but if you're anywhere near the Bay Area in CA, there's a great custom tat parlor called Final Sin, I've gotten both of my tattoos there and they do awesome work :)
