Entwined Dragon And Phoenix Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf Entwined Dragon And Phoenix Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is morte_vivante's completed commission with an entwined dragon and phoenix.

:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:

Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03
Color: Copic Markers

Please do not copy, trace, reproduce, or alter in any way without given permission.

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here:… if you need more info.

Ugh, I want to see this without the watermark. Obviously I understand, I'm not asking, just saying it's a shame there are so many thieves stealing good artwork.
I am window shopping for someone to design a tattoo for me, and as someone who wants to pay good money for an original piece of art, I appreciate the use of the watermarks to keep your art from being stolen.
Not sure is anyone else sees it, but it looks like a face between the two of them.
...Why is it when i'm about to request a design someone else has already done it?

Yeah, would getting it Tattooed be allowed?

Thank you for asking.

The designs in my gallery are solely for the use of my customers who originally paid to have me custom design them and they are not for public use or any kind of alteration other than myself or my clients. However, if you're interested in placing an order for a similar custom design of your own, I'd be happy to work with you on it. 

Or, if you would like to purchase one of my pre-made designs that are available for license of $15 USD each, please click here:…

I'm assuming by the artists comments that'd be a no
