API Documentation

Welcome to our websites API Documentation. Here, we will discuss, and show you how your application can interact with TattooBro. This is for anyone who wants to develop applications to interact with and we would love to hear from anyone developing an application using our API. Hopefully, our API document will provide you all you need to know to be able to build your app. If the information we provide is not enough please feel free to contact us. If you build anything using our API please contact us and we will display it on our page as an example.

TattooBro's API (application programming interface) is a powerful tool that allows developers to build and connect various mobile and desktop applications.

Our API sits on every page, listen to requests and responds by outputting JSON formatted data. The vailable data set depends on requested URL but you will normally get JSON-packed data for the corresponding page that you can see in your browser on this URL. For example, if you call the API on specific user profile URL you will receive all user-related data as well as posts on his timeline, all the metadata and other related variables. You may also receive form descriptions and other variables that are not visible in standard html output. Technically, this API can only be used to retrieve data from the server, for writing data and posting to the server use the standard GET/POST requests.

"posts_data": [{
"user_screen_name": "user1",

When user is logged in using the "apikey", application will return user identity in JSON format. To login user and authenticate with the website use the standard POST form submit (form#Login). When logged in, API will respect all the filtering and security as you would normally see on the website. Warning: API can return more data than you would normally see on the website. For example, API can return group owner ID which you cannot normally see.

When URL endpoint contains one or more forms they will be returned as JSON data too with. Variable called "identifier" will contain all attributes so you can automatically create forms in your application.

"add_post_form": {
"show_privacy": true,
