I see this bird everywhere. I feel like it's the most popular sparrow ever. Bravo!
Omgtinybees Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2015
I've run into it, on people, in person. Crazy experience. Thank you so much for the comment! :3

I got this as a tattoo, and I adore it, thank you. I got it in memory of my fiancÚ, his handwriting saying 'I love you' beneath it, on my wrist, and it honestly saved my life. I will send you a picture as soon as I can, I just came across this and wanted to thank you.

I got this last year, I'm from Australia and hadn't seen it before but now I've read alot of your comments I didn't realise it was so well known and its on every second person. little bit disappointed now as I like having unique and individual tattoos. Dont get me wrong I still love the design and love the way it looks but wish I had found it on deviant art first so I knew how common it was. think I need to find a way to make it a bit more personalised for me. I will put it on my profile if you would like to see it.

Hey, I saw this on pinterest the other day and remembered it from your gallery. It took me to the above link.

I had no idea this was from deviant art when I found it on Google on some persons tumblr. But when I typed in sparrow in deviant art this came up. So this is your design with a splash of color.

Also I put a link to your page with the picture.

That's an immaculate design, the shading is almost painfully good, the curves are beautifully smooth and it has so much character :-)

I took this bird to be tattoo'd, and the artist refused saying too many people have asked for it. Instead, he made his own drawing which turned out much better anyway.

A good artist won't tattoo this on you for the sheer fact that its been done too much. A good artist won't want their name associated with this.

Amazing work!

Wow! I didn't know this was your design! I found it on the internet randomly and been thinking for about a year to get it done on my wrist!! :)
I'm so glad I know now it's yours! I will definitely get it done then upload the picture and ofcourse give credits now that I know it's yours!
I agree with you, I want it ABSOLUTELY to look the same! I dont want to change a thing!!!

Love it! :)

Thank you for saying I could use it (about two years ago, you were surprised that I took the time to write a long message to your myspace (I've now deleted said myspace account sadly) and so were happier than the many other people asking. =]

I haven't gotten it done yet because I may only ever get one tattoo and I want it to be perfect and to be sure! I agree with what you said, I have seen bad versions of your beautiful design and it makes me sad.

I may get it when I visit my cousins in America since they have tattoos and none of my family here in the UK has one. It will be linked to the memory of this nice visit.

I guess I have the worry that your tattoo comes up when you google image 'sparrow tattoo' or even 'dove tattoo' (oddly) so perhaps I'll later it slightly so it is unique. I wouldn't want to find lots of other people with it! (So maybe it is good to do it abroad away from where I live because do tattoo artists sometimes keep designs to do on others?).

That's all! =] xx

Brilliant pic, I'm glad I clicked on the deviant link under the Death to Birth vid... seen alot of sparrow designs as it's a popular tat but not many of them stand out to me but this one does/

Ive talked many people out of getting this tattoo, its absolutely gorgous but thousands of people already have it. We get 2-3 people a month ask about it in our tattoo shop, i think tattoos should mean something when a person gets them, not just because "i found it online and its pretty" but it is very very lovely, nice work! i really like your other work as well.
jlaynaeb Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
It's a great tattoo design! But technically it is a swallow...not a sparrow. I've been raising a sparrow for about four months and plan to get a tattoo of an actual sparrow (they don't have the pointed tail feathers).
Polska37 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011
I have been trying to find the amazing person that drew this. I fell in love with this the first time I saw it. I know you said you don't want us asking if we can use this as a tattoo, however I only feel it's the proper thing to do. May I use it? I have already researched the artist and shop, I'm not sure if you know of Tattoo Don and his crew in Buffalo NY, but that is who I am going to. I will send you a pic of the results.
chrissylynnd Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
What a BEAUTIFUL sparrow I have been looking for months for the perfect sparrow and I think I may have found it. I have no problem paying for this tattoo. How much is this BEAUTIFUL bird?

My friend got this tattoo, and she implies that it's original. I just wanted to give you credit for the work you did.

BabyBTG Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2011
I think you should be happy you caused a national phenomenon, every girl I know has this tattoo.

My cousin got this tattoo about three years ago with fantastic results, it's one of the prettiest tattoos I've ever seen. I'll try and find a pic for you!

Greasy-Greaser Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2011
At least some Tattooists are turning people away for this. I saw it Friday when some bimbo walked into my haunt and asked a respected Artist.

He told her - This is on every bimbo in ASU and no, give me a deposit and I will draw you an original.

People want the first thing they see on Google - unfortunately YOURS is the first. This is what happens when you make stuff public though - people have no respect for personal property when they do not ask.

really good work ! what kind of pen did use? it looks really realistic.

I just wanted to let you know that I found this design on the web with no artist name attached. I realized after I had it done (beautifully by a very talented artist in Philadelphia) that I should try and track down the original artist and say thank you.

I'm sorry that I didn't think to track you down BEFORE I had this done and ask. I hope you can forgive my foolishness.

Either way, here is the end result.

HouseOfGimp Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011
Hey there. A friend of mine just pointed me to this, as I got a tattoo yesterday after seeing this image on google.
Had I known it was your design, I would have at least asked your permission. But I thought I should let you know.
Beautiful design. :heart:

blhowell91 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
I got this as a tattoo two years ago, I actually found it on a google search but recently(TWO YEARS LATER) my boyfriend found it on here and told me you were the original artist!! I hope you like the end result of it.

MissInsatiable Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
Just wanted to give you a heads up that someone is trying to pass your tattoo design off as their own. : [link]

Wow. I was looking for sparrow tattoo designs for a character model, and this is just beautiful!
CaitlynEdwards91 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2010
I used this design for my tattoo.
You can see it here [link]

I got it done at WA Unk in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Every tattooist in there was super impressed with the design.

Thanks so much.

I read your description about just posting a picture of the finished work, but I still wanted to ask you first. I'm getting married in March and wanted to get something as a testament to my love for him. I know Sparrows have SO many meanings, but they are very loyal birds, which is why I have chosen to have a sparrow design tattooed on me. I've been looking since we got engaged (8/22/08) and just haven't found anything even close to what I was envisioning. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for!

If I have your permission, I would like to use my own variation of your piece. I'm not getting it done until at lease the end of next March, but I wanted to ask you now, so I can start designing my alterations. Let me know!

Thanks so much!
