InkBlot Content Guidelines
Summary of Revision made on 1/17/2022
We have add to the list of content that is considered Mature Content (allowed) & clarified that:
-Fetishism or Fetishistic Focused art: Art that is has an intense focus on an inanimate object, clothing or from a very specific focus on a non-genital body part for gratification. (i.e inflation, feet, leather, etc) This is considered mature content and does not always have to have a sexual connotation with it. It should be tagged as NSFW with content warnings as advised below.
InkBlot Content GuidelinesWe are committed to providing a platform that can allow artists and art lovers of all ages, the freedom of creativity and discovery. While doing this we want to give users the ability to curate their experience so that they are in control of the content and social groups that they encounter.With our content and word filter, we want to put our users in control for a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience on our platform. Please learn more about our Content filters as we develop it further.Also please see our Copyright FAQTagging your workWe allow for all works regardless of their nature or subject to be tagged with content warnings. This will help with those that filter out certain terms. We encourage users to use this to help the community as a whole.Tagging does not equate to using hashtags. Content warnings are separate and help with behind the scenes logic. Hashtags are for social and discoverability purposes!Mature/NSFW ContentNote: Marking your work Mature does not mean that it can contain prohibited content.InkBlot allows mature content using our content filter. This is of the utmost importance to use if you intend to post NSFW works. We believe that it is the responsibility of the artist/creator to ensure that their work is reached by the correct audience even in the smallest of ways as simple as putting on a filter or using content warnings and looking out for clues that could imply that a user is evading the measures put in place for legalities and moral reasons.Please check our Account Types page for more information.Artists that create mature content are encouraged to do more than the bare minimum to protect their community regardless of age or association.Mature content includes but is not limited to:Explicit Nudity:
Media with exposure of genitalia, breasts, and buttocks for the pure purpose of sexual stimulation.Note: Artistic Nudity is not mature content as long as it does not have a suggestive or sexual theme.Gore or Violence:
Graphic depictions of violence; including but not limited to: verbal, emotional and physical abuse.Self harm and suicide including eating disorders:
InkBlot encourages healthy discussion of these topics that does NOT encourage, glorify or romanticize these topics.Fetishism or Fetishistic Focused art: Art that is has an intense focus an inanimate object, clothing or from a very specific focus on a non-genital body part for gratification. (i.e inflation, feet, leather, etc) This is just considered mature content and does not always have to have a sexual connotation with it.Please use our content filter and content warnings to meet and follow our guidelines.What We Remove
This is not a complete list, and InkBlot reserves the right to remove any content that we find inappropriate or in violation of our content guidelines. Any content that could put our community at risk will be removed. We have the right to close any account or remove content without notice please review our Terms of Service.Sexual Content that:Violates Age of consent:

Published 4/28/2021 12PM MST1st revision on 1/17/2022
As we commit to creating a space for artists and art lovers, we realize that our community is made up of all ages with different preferences.Because we allow NSFW and SFW content, we have placed several measures to ensure that certain age groups and audiences are not exposed to content that they shouldn't or don't want to be exposed to.Accounts will be based on content they published and the age of its user. This can be automated or done manually. Accounts that have a maximum of 1(one) post that is labeled NSFW will be made hidden from younger users (Users that are 17 and younger) and users that have their account set to filter NSFW.Minor Accounts
Mature content filter can not be turned off for users that are 17 years old or younger.Interactions will be limited to other SFW and minor accounts. NSFW accounts or posts will not appear, list, or be made available for minor accounts. Comments, follows, or messaging will also be disabled so minors will not be able to interact with accounts that publish NSFW.NSFW vs SFW Accounts
Artists that would like to publish both SFW and NSFW are encouraged o do so under one account but a second can be made to keep content separate.Note: Any user 18+ will be able to see works from both accounts as long as the mature content filter is turned off.We believe that it is both the Platform and the creator's responsibility that their works are consumed by the correct and appropriate audience when it comes to age groups. Users that do not want to see mature content or certain topics/subjects are welcome to use our content warning system and/or content filter.Users must follow our Content Guidelines regardless of what account type they have.
