acquiring rights to use
If you'd like to use any of my stories, articles, photos, or tattoo designs, please contact me; my email address is michaelʘemuu.net. If you want to quote me, go for it. Many people have had my ink done, and some people have used my photos for books, derivative works of art, etc. These people asked my permission, and I've almost always said yes.
(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)
A civilization is a heritage of beliefs, customs, and knowledge slowly accumulated in the course of centuries, elements difficult at times to justify by logic, but justifying themselves as paths when they lead somewhere, since they open up for man his inner distance.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
