Looks similar to a cryptonite design from late '91!!! Could be wrong though

I thought this was spam but realised Tim you're right. The design was used on a Cryptonite flyer.

This dismays me for a number of reasons!!
Firstly, it's my artwork, which was done for Cryptonite in the 90s and not only was the printing of the flyers really dire, my Cryptonite contact stole this and two other artwork originals!!
Secondly that's a fricken' dreadful tattoo, perpetrated by some hopeless scratcher. I did some training as a tattooist a few years back but never took it up (I am a professional illustrator) and though I only did 6 months training I was already far better than that!!
A restored version of this art can be found at http://www.tonyhough.co.uk/Colour/Large/19Flu.htm

Could you let me know the origin of the tattoo photo? Would like to know who did it to whom, and with what!
Was either party proud of the result? [comment removed by Admin]

The user Iggy posted it directly and from what he mentions in his post it's on his back.

I guess the fact he has posted it, means he was happy with the result.

Appreciate you don't like the tattoo, but guess your art on the flyer made an impact on him, so much so that he wanted a tattoo of it, and lets face it the ink is 20 odd years old now, so may look a fair bit different from when first applied?

Great art by the way, I never went to the Cryptonite rave,but remember the flyers at the time and nightmare that you lost your original art as well.

Edit - I've removed your last comment in the previous post.. which is actually the first time since the forum was set up in 2009 I have felt the need to do that to any post.
