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...

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 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.

Do you mind if I use this kind of like a line-art?? I might use it as an I.D later on
Kiiro-chan Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
sure, I guess I don't mind if you use it for that.

Is it ok if I convert this to embroidery to embroider on items I make?
