Stock!? WTF? If you haven't noticed it, this deviation was not uploaded in "stock" category. Below it "all rights reserved" is written. And by the way, the fact that I haven't put a big, ugly watermark on all my drawings doesn't mean that anyone may use them as they please.

Please remove this deviation, or I will have report it as art thievery.

Hi Avestra, I used your beautiful wolf tattoo for an illustration of mine.
I hope you don't mind?

Well, I do mind. If you would have asked me for permission to use my artwork BEFORE actually doing that, I definitely would not have allowed that. All my images are marked with "all rights reserved", I never allow anyone to use my art in any manner unless I get payment for that. And in my deviantart profile page there is written all this information, so that people wouldn't have to ask me all the time.
So in this case I consider this a simple art thievery.

I won't ask you to remove this drawing of yours from Internet only because I see that you have put some effort in drawing it, but in future I would recommend you to use STOCK images in your artworks. There are lots of tattoo designs available as stock in the Internet.

And I totally dislike this attitude that unless an artwork is marked with a huge and ugly watermark, then anyone is free to do anything they wish with it. I understand it when little kids who are making their blogs and want to decorate them with pretty images and know nothing about copyrights are stealing my art but I wasn't expecting that from an artist (at least your gallery gives me impression it's not the first time you are holding a pencil).
