Does anyone know where I can get a good print of the Queen logo? I want the logo for a tat. I've done a few searches but can't quite find what I'm looking for. I'm looking for the logo in B&W or color, and a very simple print.

Thanks,
Dan

You realise that when you first get it, it will look cool. Maybe.

And then you will get old and ugly and wrinkly. And the tattoo will look somewhat like a drawing on a piece of paper that's been crumpled up and smoothed out about fifty times.

...advice... it's a funny thing.

Umm, I seem to remember that there's a 1 colour drawing of it (white) on the inside front cover of the Queen II album on vinyl. I've checked my CD version but it's not there unfortunately. All you need to do then is scan it and invert the colours to give yourself the black outlines. If you have one of the latest versions of Illustrator you can also convert it to a vector image (Live Trace) to get rid of those harsh edges from the scan.

Good to hear about someone brave enough to do it by the way (just don't add a '+' sign after it- your arm won't be long enough)

Thanks for the tips. I'm gonna hit the Princeton record exchange, and Final Vinyl this week to look for Queen II.

By the way, when I get it done I'll post the pic.

I've just scanned the logo from the vinyl album sleeve of Queen II and inverted them.
Perhaps this might do?
see my site www.mercuryparadise.com
under the menu Back Chat, Paintings and Drawings.
Right at the bottom of that page.
They're in BMP and JPG format.
BMP is 18MB and 8MB large.
JPG is 900KB and 250KB.

Inside the CD-cover of Queen II there are some great simple logos. Also the Sheer Heart Attack album got some logos...
