This is beautiful! Instead of a tattoo, may I use it on a webpage for my women's investment club?

Hello! my name is Madison and I wanted to ask you if I could use this piece on the website for my private foundation! The private foundation is to raise money to send me to college and pay for my surgery. Since I have been a victim of abuse, depression, and health issues, this foundation will allow me to have a fresh start and since the lotus is a plant that lives through murky water all closed up in the beginning of its life and then breaks through and blossoms as a beautiful magnificent flower as it ages, i feel that it would be the perfect symbolism for our goal of creating a new start for myself! Please get back to me soon for your permission! I wanted to ask you first before I used any of your work! Also full credit will be give to you as well!!

People seriously underestimate the beauty and complexity behind the lotus design. For one, they're not easy to draw, right. This is one is exceptional.

Well done.

I have been planning on getting this tattooed on my right foot for about a year now. As soon as I save up the money I will get it done and send you a picture. I got an account here just to let you know that :)

It's very important to me, so thank you for creating such a beautiful piece. It is going to symbolize my recovery from an 8 year addiction.
