Is It Illegal To Get Disney Tattoos?

I learned in art school that Disney is pretty harsh when it comes to prosecuting people the use their copyrighted work. It’s a long story, but Disney movies have always been a huge part of my early childhood – I used them to cope with a lot of experiences that I went through. Much like a drug would numb pain. And I want a full sleeve of characters that I always had compared with myself, or felt like. But I was unsure if it’s even legal for me, and/or the artist do go through with it. Would many even be interested since it IS so heavily copyrighted? And answers are valuable.

    It is completely legal to get Disney characters tattooed on your body. I mean what are they gonna do? Say uh…you can’t do that afterward? But yeah. It’s legal

    Well, you aren’t reproducing your tattooed skin and selling it to the masses are you? Disney wouldn’t waste there time sueing someone over such a small incident. That would be like prosecuting a elementary school kid for drawing pooh bear pictures.

    People get cartoon/film characters tattooed all the time, as well as all kinds of band/corporate logos. A tattoo isn’t infringing on copyright cos no one is profiting from the use of the image. The artist is basically being paid for his/her time/effort/supplies used. Also it can be looked at as free publicity for Disney. I’ve seen many cool tats of ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ characters, for example.
