Multiple layers of exquisite beauty in one photograph. Numerous awe-inspiring beautiful and alluring ladies with different hair colors and styles, and body art prominently displayed like a seamless collage between them. Very impressive.

Instead of being a self-righteous ass and yammer on about the ad or tattoos, I'd like to ask you about you're awesome photo. Is that a composite or were all the ladies there at the same time? If it is a composite then wow. Flawless.
Hart-Worx Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Professional Photographer
all girls same time same place and no compositing ;)

peta steht doch eigentlich für tierschutz...warum haben die dann alle massenhaft make up im gesicht? und woraus die tinte besteht wird auch nicht hinterfragt....

Love your work. Love humans. Love animals. Love to eat (some) animals. Love to preserve the environment. Love to protect animals from cruelty. Love tatoos that fit my taste. Love bodies without tatoos just as much. Love fur clothing that fits my taste. Love people that don't wear fur just as much. Hate PETA and most associated organizations. Hate faceless industrial companies that process animals with no consideration for the ethical treatment of those animals. I love the photograph but think the message "INK NOT MINK" is ridiculous.

I love and hate and praise and ridicule. I guess I'm human.

amazing concept. I love how the color of each model's hair designates their name in the legend; very clever.

Pretty stunning ladies you have here.
Kewpa Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's stuff like this that makes PETA a joke. "Ink not Mink". Okay. What kind of statement is that supposed to be? That instead of wearing fur, we should objectify women for the sake of sensational advertising? Yeah. That seems like a good trade off.

For real, that's like all of their advertising anymore. Rather than reinforce their vision and values in a straightforward and professional fashion, they just toss risque photos at you and claim it's all in the name of the ethical treatment of animals.

What am I missing... oh, right, the photo. Not bad at all.
TinyFinch Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Student Digital Artist
This. All of this.
wow! they are all so lovely :'> great shot!

your shoes more then likely have leather......
dylancaprotti Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
the horrible made-up names make me wince just as much as the crappy "artwork"

someone needs to do something about all the chicks thinking its cool to look like that

its bad role modeling

and even worse... its not even cool, seriously get original... they all look identical.

did the same fat bearded dude with dyed black hair do all these tattoos?

Dictionary definition of Bigotry: 'Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot, defined by Merriam-Webster as "a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group with hatred and intolerance".[1] Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics'.
Making sweeping generalisations about the way "they" look or that these "chicks" are bad role models based purely on their appearance? Shitty statement.
And I'm not knocking the guy for not liking this amount of tattoo coverage, just a shitty thing to write on someone's artwork. It serves no point but to aggravate (much like the reply). I believe this is known as "trolling". I think a "bigoted" statement would be something like "did the same fat bearded dude with dyed black hair do all these tattoos?". Oh wait, he did type that.
You have to click to view the image from a thumbnail, why bother getting a better look at something you don't like? I read the comment because I was viewing something I DO like. So not really a hypocrite.
And his opinions validity has nothing to do with the size of his DA gallery, but knocking someone and not putting your work up for criticism speaks volumes.
Not really "Game, set, match". I'll defend myself/ answer questionable statements but I think extended arguing on the internet is a pointless endeavour and both parties end up looking stupid.
I meant what I said; having that opinion isn't "wrong", but it serves no point to express it on this photo. I'm out. Argue among yourselves.
dylancaprotti Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
My main objective is to comment on the trend of shitty-tattoos to raise cultural awareness to the point where young people have the proper attitude toward it.

Which is; they are passe NOT cool. And society is getting there. Reason will win every time.
mxw8 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
You're entitled to your opinion. If you don't like tattoos or tattooed women then why are you looking at this kind of photo? Even more so, why do you think anyone wants to hear YOUR opinion?
I notice you don't have any artwork up on your profile. Are you just trolling?

It's bad role modelling to act like an asshole and a bigoted idiot. Doesn't stop you though, huh?
brianmcbugger Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Bigoted? For having a negative opinion about a choice others make? For picking up on a negative stereotype? "I do not think it means what you think it means." - Inigo Montoya
And for you to criticize someone for the very act of looking at something that they don't necessarily like and then *gasp* expressing an opinion on said subject matter (how dare they?)... while you're committing the very act of reading something you don't agree with and in turn giving your opinion on it... Do ya see what ya did there? *cough* hypocrite *cough*.
Get some perspective.
P.s. Prefacing your comment with "You're entitled to your opinion" was as pointless as a tatoo on the inside your skull or a mink fur lined suppository when all you did was follow it up with essentially telling them they weren't entitled to their opinion and attempted to disqualify their opinion.
P.p.s. Since when is the validity of a person's opinion based on the size of their DA gallery?

dylancaprotti Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
its not that i dont like tattoos

some tattoos are actually awesome and original

but in my opinion, wait, in my taste... there are very few that are actually worth having

and to have it(to me) is to make a statement

when something has become so acute, that it becomes a scene, and a lifestyle... then its not original, or artistic in the least

furthermore, some people think tattoos are cool

there was a time in the evolution of our society when having a tattoo kinda meant you were a rebel and a badass

but thats like 50 years ago

today it dont say shit other than the fact that you are corny

and to have that many tattoos... and nary a one of them being actually good... then i say flush these bitches down the fucking toilet and toss on a fur, baby

cuz at this point id trade a bunch of pelts to have these average looking bitches have their skin back... in a flash

but my final point is that they are juxtaposing one insane thing with another... ink and mink... they both suck

game set match
Deviated-Septum Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
Well put, sir, well put. But at least ink doesn't kill animals needlessly.
La-Merwaffle Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
You, sir, are sexist. 8D
dylancaprotti Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
not really, it just so happens they are all women in the photo, if they were men my opinion would be the same
BunnyPunk Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
They can look however they want, it's their skin and a particular type of style that they all happen to like. What does the fact they're women have to do with it anyway?

That's the point of the photograph 'Ink not Mink' so of course they'd choose heavily tattooed models otherwise it wouldn't make any sense.

You personally don't like tattoos? Fine, it's your body, nobody is asking you to get any but judging people purely for what they look like is being a worse rolemodel than having tattoos.
Sin-of-August Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Great project, my admiration for your work. But PETA is an awful organisation, it is a shame that this work is associated with it.
MarkArandjus Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, what you said.
