Fake Tattoo Expert

They call him a imposter, but I say there's the academic careerist who can't be real either.

Essex academic's imposter 'copied work and tattoos'

An academic has told how a student in the United States adopted his identity, copied his tattoos and submitted his unpublished professional research as his own.

Dr Matt Lodder, senior lecturer in art history at the University of Essex, has carried out wide-ranging work into the history of tattooing practice.

The unnamed imposter, he said, went as far as to present his work at conferences.

Dr Lodder said it was "pretty creepy".

The 40-year-old said the imposter, who was studying for a masters degree in the US, used a variety of fake identities to get him to send over unpublished research.

He said the student then submitted the work as his own and presented it at conferences.

"He also dressed like me, posed for photos matched to ones of me, told people he had done things that I'd done, and most scarily of all, copied my hand tattoos exactly,"

I wonder who he's impersonating now.

He never got up to the interesting part where he dissolves the original tattoo artist in acid and starts his own franchise living on the name. As far has is known anyway...

This was a practice run. --shame about the tattoos though, may make finding a suitable victim impossible.

The amount of effort in stealing someone's work and ID has got to be more than doing the work yourself as yourself, surely?

--it probably depends on the work. It can't be harder when stealing Penrose's work for example.

Good point. Not even Penrose understands all of his own work! :)
