My cousin is getting a tattoo and the artist needs a high resolution pic to get the details right. I am currently looking through the M4 picture thread but the pics aren't big enough to be blown up without getting distorted.

Does anyone have an original-sized picture of an M4 with an Acog and vertical grip they could send me? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

Tom

Tom,

What size and view are you looking for. Full or close up of reciever/scope/handgrip.

Thanks guys, do you have originals of those pics (are they bigger)? That middle pic is PERFECT if you have a bigger version if it. The tattoo is going to be over 12" long, so as close to that as you can get is best.

Really appreciate the help.

remember tattoo's will get blurry over the years.... out line of the weapon with it filled in black will hold up better than trying to make it look real on the skin... dont know if thats what your going for just a little reminder though

i've seen some pretty detailed rifle tattoos before, so Im hoping that the tattoo artist can pick and choose what will still look good 20 years down the road. i know he isnt going to get the tiny stuff, but I think it is more for correct spacing and making it perfectly to scale.

If you want it done right, there's a graphic designer that goes by the handle "Dogfight Ink."

Contact him, and have him make a couple drafts of exactly what you're looking for.

Of course, you could always get an AR and take pictures yourself of exactly what you needed?

Have him stand up and sit and whatever while looking at the stencil. It will never be perfect (machine with straight lines on human skin) - but you can find a happy medium.
Better to check than to have an AR that looks like it needs some viagra.

Might also go over to pimpmygun and build exactly what you want (but bring detailed photos of some real ones so the artist can get it looking right).
