    Yeah I don't see why not, I'd take the picture to a good tattoo artist and ask them to draw you up a design.

    Yeah I think it's pretty too If it was me though, I'd get it in black and white.
    That's not me saying you should do the same, just my personal preference.

    Just remember that when you approach the age of 70, you're tattoo will start resembling a vulture...

    That'll make a sweet tattoo. Just make sure you go with an artist that will be able to do it justice.

    i personally find the exceptional part of the image to be the blend of bright colours. I think it would be hard to replicate, but if that's not the important part/you're sure they can replicate it- then go for it

    The tattooist I know does AMAZING work. She specialises in "girly" tattoos, so I'm sure she'd be able to do a great job Got a quote today of £100 :eek: But will be totally worth it!

    Easily (:
    An artist might want to change some things about it, they often seem to- if they're good I'd definatly consider their input
    It's really pretty

    Yeah, because that will look great when you're 70 and the tattoo has faded somewhat and gone all wrinkly.

    What does it matter? And I'm not going to let it fade into just a smudge, I'll maintain it so it still looks good when I'm older!

    Guys - shut up with all the 'It'll look crap when your 70 stuff.' The OP obviously wants it and it may not look crap when she's 70. It may look like it's aged, but the whole nature of tattoos is that they stay permanently the same. The only reason it will warp is because of her skin becoming wrinkled, and I think we can all agree it would look pretty damn stupid if she had one patch of skin that resembled a 20 year old whilst the rest is old.

    To the OP - get a very good artist. You will have to pay top dollar to get someone to replicate that to a high standard.
