    1911 Tattoo - Picture wanted

    Hello
    I´m planing a photorealistic Tattoo of an engraved and customized 1911.

    After searching several days the internet I´ve found some nice pics - but there is a problem: The pics I found have not the right perspective!!! It should be the right side and ~30° from the top and ~30° from behind.

    Please help!!! if you have a nice 1911 in chrome or a bright finish - please take a picture (right+30°top+30°back) and post or sent it!
    (Engraving and gold-finish could be added by my tattoo artist ;-)

    I WILL POST THE TATTOO AFTERWARDS - FOR SHURE!!! ;-)

    Thanks a lot

    Guido (munich/germany)

    here's my tat:


    Stainless or nickel would be best for it, also, I'd suggest an ORM if seeing the lettering is important to you.

    Hi Guido. I have found that tattoo parlors have a fine selection of designs from which to choose. They have a library of designs. I too, scoured the net looking for just the right rose design only to find the tat place had it in their library. And they can scale it up or down as you desire.
    Go and see what they have. Good luck...

    Thanks Guid and Pappy, I thought that Commander was a beauty when I bought it, it's actually a blued one but the Tattooist thought the lighter shade would look better and I gotta agree with the results!
