Things I Don’t Love

It’s Thursday, which means it ‘s time for another week of Things I Don’t Love!

Here’s how it works:

Write up your own Things I {don’t} Love post and link it up here. You can write about anything and everything. It can be about one thing or ten things, and you can choose to include pictures or whatever you’d like. It’s completely up to you! Just tell me what you’re not loving right now. Please make sure to grab a button or link back to my blog in some way, then hop around the link ups and check out some other blogs. Linky parties are a great way to meet new people and find some fun new blogs to follow, so have fun and be social. I always read and try to comment on every single link up!

People who confuse “inspiration” with a blatant rip off. Yesterday I saw my friend Ashley mention something about her tattoo being copied by someone on Instagram and it really annoyed me. Probably because I’ve had plenty of my tattoos copied too. It’s the price you pay for having your stuff online, but where does inspiration end and ripping off begin?

┬áHere’s Ashley’s tattoo:
Then she saw this:
Really? Same tattoo? Same placement? Even the same pose for the camera? And then admitting to the person (via social media) that you saw it on her first & wanted it? That my friend, is a blatant rip off.

I totally understand seeing a tattoo, loving the idea, putting your own twist on it, and ending up with something similar yet still unique. Do not, I repeat, do not straight up copy someone unless you’re going to improve on the original.

Also, just an FYI: if you are ever “inspired” by one of my tattoos and decide to get matching ones, please don’t tweet me about it! I probably won’t be stoked on it.

Now it’s your turn.
