Ok this isn't really serious discussion, but it is serious for me. I am going to get a group portrait tattoo of queen to
finnish of my backpiece. The thing is I have been saying that I am getting this for 3 years now so finally I have booked my
appointment for sunday and there is no wimping out. Where you kind lovely people can help is if you have any nice
group pictures of queen could you post them? It can be from a wallpaper or something which you can scan, as long
as it is not too small like most from the pic section. The picture I have uploaded is the size I would like but bigger is better. I have lots of books with good pictures in them but the size is too small with little detail hence the reason for asking. I was originally going to get the queen 2 cover but the faces have alot of darkness around them and would not be that good for a tattoo. this is the picture I am going to use if there are no better pics posted.

Honestly, I doubt about that picture as a tattoo. I'd advise you to do not just a foto. It would be nice to add some art work. And probably Queen II cover could be something quite interesting, but with some adaptation- not just copy (all the black). Where do you want to make a tattoo? Which years do you prefer? Did you think about the crest? I think it will look even better than a foto.
I'll try to look for something- but no promises.
And the most important- are sure about tattoo?

I think the cover of queen2 would be best, but made in heaven is also nice.

Here are a few tattoos of Queen that I think might prove useful in your decision making process.

Thanks for the replys. I have thought about the crest but I would like the group pic. I am going to get in at the bottom of my back as big as looks best. I have attatched a pic of my Freddie tattoos, the one on the left is a coverup of a poor freddie attempt so my artist is very capable.

Nice tattoo steven. I did consider the first one dragonfly but the grainy picture is lacking the sharp detail my artist needs to make a masterpiece. Also I don't know if it would work as there is alot of white, I will check. Thanks again for your interest and help!

Check this out:

I got it from Mick Rock's book Classic Queen.  I might not have been allowed to scan and share it, but I think the picture will have much better quality than the one shared by DragonFly.  It's also a rare one as far as I know as it's not the official version used on Queen II.  It's one of my favorites actually.

finnish of my backpiece.


A Queen Tramp-stamp of all four members? 

Well, at least that gives someone a choice then.
