Copyright infringement

I had just been notified from a Facebook group that someone who has had one of my images tattooed on their leg. I’m rather annoyed at this as it is blatant copyright infringement. Tattooist are artists too and should know about copyright and the law, which makes it even more annoying. I guess the main point is that the tattoo artist was paid for their work and I get no recognition or payment.

The Facebook page for the Tattoo shop that tagged me is here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tattooz-Club/686488844729908?fref=photo they are based in Budapest, Hungary. Not sure if they are the originators or have just uploaded the work. So looking for help from anyone one who knows who the tattooist is or can help with information.

This is the website for the facebook group and the work displayed here looks similar but it’s pure conjecture on my part as I’ve no proof that these were the store that did the work http://www.tattoozclub.com/ However, they did message me via facebook with the link to their group, I responded saying who was the artist as this was a copyrighted image, they responded stating they have no idea and then blocked me. I think that speaks volumes.
