Can I really download the tattoos for free?

Yes. You can download and use them however you like to, as far as you don´t make money out of them: like many freeware programs, they´re free for personal, non commercial use. Otherwise, you can use them commercially only under specific consent from their authors, under the conditions established by them.
We ask you though, or at least suggest you, to modify the designs according to your taste, customizing them as you like... this way every design, yours included, will remain unique and personal!
