    Would someone please review my article "Best Tats of Pussy Cats"?  I want to submit it to a niche site, but I do not have a proof reader at home.  I would love to have comments, criticism, and suggestions.  A second (and third, etc) pair of eyes is needed to see our mistakes.  Thank you all in advance.  smile

      That URL is going to bury your hub in bounce backs. Reminds me of a hub I wrote a long time ago entitled "Beavers Galore!" or some such. lol

        Update:

        I have never heard of HP changing an URL for someone, but that was pre network site days. Maybe when you submit to the network, you also send an email explaining the situation, i.e., substitute "cat" in place of "pussy". What with them having to change the URL anyway and them not wanting their site to have those bounce backs anymore than you do, they just might do it. Pure speculation on my part and odds are probably not good, but you never know. smile

          That url has caused me problems for years.  I wrote this hub 7 or 8 years ago.   That is a good idea to see if they will change it for me.  Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Tattoos are copyrighted works, so I would suggest linking sources in a way that shows they are being shown with permission of the artist.

      hmmm, that's interesting, but I do not know how to find the artists.  The pictures come from photobucket or photopin.  I assumed these would be OK to use.  Most of them, I assume, were taken for the personal use of the person tattooed.  I have two that are not on people.  I will remove them.  Do you think it is ok to keep the pictures taken by the people owning the tattoo?

        You source links don't go to the specific photo so there is no way to look at the license and figure it out. Even to meet the photographers requirements you probably need to attribute the work to them by name. Many tattoo collection pages don't worry about the legal requirement but on Hubpages you need to.

        The general advice on how to change a url... is to start a new hub and transfer the content, as tedious as that is.

        I would advise you NEVER to use photos from Photobucket.  That site is overflowing with photos that are copyright and illegal to use - Photobucket doesn't police it at all.  So you could be at risk of getting sued. 

        Photopin hosts photos specifically for bloggers to use, but they are Creative Commons images so make sure you read the instructions on how to credit them.

          This is very worrisome to me.  I have many photos from Photobucket.  When I first started it was all I used.  I guess I'm going to have to go through all my articles and re-picture them.  Thank you both, psycheskinner and Marisa for bringing this to my attention.  I'm not sure what I'll end up doing with this hub.  I may have to scrap the whole thing.  sad

            We all make mistakes!   In practice, the risk of someone suing you is low.  The problem is, if you are sued, the potential cost is frighteningly high.  Consider how much money this Hub has made you and decide whether it is worth it, perhaps?

              Thanks Marisa.  Lol, I'm going to have to think about this.  smile

    Hey k@ri, if you're looking for photos that you can use legally for free I love Unsplash and the Flickr creative commons. (Seriously check Flickr creative commons for tattoos, I bet you'll find some good stuff there).

      Thanks, Kierstin!  I will try that.  I really appreciate the suggestion.  smile

        Flickr has strict rules about attribution, and a lot of their photos are NOT legal to use, so make sure you check each photo carefully.

    Pixabay.com has ten pages of tattoo images that are Creative Commons licensed, free for commercial use and to adapt.

    Marisa, if you go into the creative commons on Flickr you're able to filter through until you only see pictures that are attribution-only. There's a lot of them.

      Yes I know, I'm just pointing out that you have to be careful.  Not everyone knows how to use the filter.

    Attribution-only means you can use them, copyright free?
