Jamile from Brazil sent us this pic the other day accompanied with a message to say that since she was a little girl, she's always dreamed of being a mermaid and that she is still fascinated with these creatures. She decided to get a Black Mermaid™ one with our permission, and has sourced the image from our current website (we're in the processing of building a new one) on the Character Gallery page.
For future reference, please note our Tattoo Policy, which is published on the FAQ page of our website.
Do you design mermaid tattoos for people?Time constraints do not allow Jozef to design any specific tattoos for interested people. Tattoo design is also not part of our core business. However, we do get occasional requests from readers, seeking permission to use some of the published BMP characters as tattoos. In principle, we do give permission in those circumstances, provided that the person contacts us by email. If you have such a request, you can email us on: firstname.lastname@example.org. However, the tattooist must give original art and copyright credit to the artist – Jozef Szekeres and/or Black Mermaid Productions™ – on any digital (online/electronic) or print promotional publication where a photo of the finished tattoo appears. We do not licence any of our Black Mermaid™, Elf~Fin™ or any other artwork and images generated by Black Mermaid Productions™ to any tattoo artists or companies.
Please note that we've changed our position slightly on the use of our Black Mermaid™ images and provided that you obtain our permission on a case by case basis, in general we do give permission to our individual readers and fans of the artwork.
