tattoo

I want a tattoo of a bonefish on my shoulder. I'm trying to find a good drawing of a bone, but I'm not happy with what I'm finding. I searched google images. Does anybody have a really great bonefish image that they think would look cool as a tattoo? Does anybody have a tat of a bonefish? I'm going to Miami next week and was planning on doing it then.

Thanks
Dr Steve

You might want to take a look at Vaughn Cochran's Black Fly web site or perhaps some of the other fishing related artists. I know he has some Bonefish prints.

Thanks, that's a cool website. I didn't see anything there that I wanted to wear forever though.

Thought of it once. if it had to be a bone... Scientific Anglers used to have bonefish prints on the cartonboxes where they packed the lines in. On the mastery bonefish series. It was just a silhouet, all black. That would have been it for me. just a silhouet of a bone, in full black. (it is not the new mastery series, but the older ones) Or the bonefish that is engraved on the back of a billy pate reel? If it can be engraved it can be tattoed aswell I asume.

Have a few strong drinks and make a statement...

If you can't find the right fish...how about monkeys!?

Aside from Penguin's idea (LOL), Tim Borski has some great artistic renderings, or the outlined bonefish pattern available on Tibor reels. Once you have it done, post a pic.

Skinny Water Culture

I got a shirt from skinny water culture... just add a .com there and I think you have it. Pretty cool, ghost-like illustration.

Borski has some nice art, but it's not what I want. Abel had a sweet bonefish drawing in an older catalog, but I can't find it.
