Artist’s watermarks
“not mine”
“credit to whoever drew this”
“source unknown”
"credit to creator/artist"
Something along the lines of saying it’s not yours
Things you should never do
Edit art
Steal art
Crop out/remove the artist’s watermark/signature
Sourcing yourself when you did not create it
Putting your watermark, signature, etc. on it when you did not create it
Posting without a source

And even if the art’s source has been removed by the artist him/herself, you STILL source it. Put a link to the artist’s page.
Or better yet, don’t put that image up at all if the source of the image is missing/deleted and you have zero idea of who made it.

CHECK if the artist has a tumblr page and, if so, reblog directly from them instead of reposting it
ASK the artist if it’s ok to repost their art before doing it
if the art has been removed from the source, DON’T POST IT, it has probably been removed for a reason
reposting art, even when sourced, is not ok if the artist doesn’t want you to
