More regrettable incidents in a life filled with bitter remorse.

David Fullarton makes pictures with words on them.

Apes, prints and tattoos.

with one comment

Okay, so first up let me announce in a most self-promotional manner that I recently put a print of one of my pieces up for sale on Society 6. Never done it before, but it seemed pretty simple so I thought I’d give it a shot. I chose this attractive work featuring the twin joys of apes and gratuitous profanity   – how can you go wrong with two things everyone loves!

Gorillas and obscenities  - who could ask for more.

It sounds pretty fancy – gallery quality Giclée print on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson K3 archival inks, custom trimmed with 2″ border –  but I haven’t actually seen a finished product, so if anyone out there actually gets one I’d love to hear what the quality is like. And, needless to say, if it’s rubbish I’ll deny all responsibility.

Enough with the hard sell, let’s move on to more entertaining matters. Over the past few weeks I’ve  been contacted by a couple of people who have got themselves tattoos based on my work. I have to admit that this pretty much blows my mind, especially since one of them takes up virtually an entire limb. I have had one previous skin-based tribute, which by remarkable coincidence was an ape, tattooed on a bloke in Brazil. That particular tattoo can even be viewed during its painful creation on YouTube – you can almost smell the burning flesh. Anyhow, here they are in all their strange glory – together with the original work that inspired them. Ouch.

Tattooed appendages from around the globe, L to R: Brazil, Sweden, Texas.

  1. I really want this print, but shipping to the UK costs more than the print itself , nevermind the whole import tax nonsense. Do you sell prints from any UK based sites?
