    I have decided to get a Boba Fett tattoo (with painful photos)

    Hi guys,

    I have decided I want to get an action-shot of an ESB Boba Fett on my calf muscle. I am going to start getting images, so I will be asking for your thoughts on the design so every detail is correct :P. Anybody have any cool reference photos of accurate boba fett poses?

    Also: my soul died a bit when I saw my 'now used to be' friend had this tattoo on her thigh... WARNING: painful to look at:

    I would say check out the Gallery section of this site: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/galle...tt-images.html
    tons and tons of images from the concept all the way to almost present day.... that way you can pick your own...

    Good luck!

    @JimmyC - Cheers mate. I'll check it out.

    @RafalFett - Those are all sick dude. But I am thinking about making it more actiony. I need to decide whether to portray the mystical side of the Fett and have a shot of him from ESB. Or I was thinking something along the lines of this as the pose, but obviously in accurate ESB colours etc. :P

    The cool thing in ESB was that Jeremy Bulloch (and the others who portrayed Boba Fett when Jeremy wasn't there) did the least movements possible, this way he gived strenght and mysticism for his character. So less is better!

    That is a good point. But on the other side, I kind of want to make it a tattoo that jumps out at you. Not just a guy standing there. If that makes sense...

    Those are ....wow! Can I say horrendous. I'm workiing on a Boba sleeve myself and I was thinking the same concept.
    But I've left it conceptually more mythical.
    Good Luck!

    I am thinking about expanding it in time into a star wars leg piece. Of which I will be seeking 501st advice all the way! Haha. I am thinking that a more action packed leg piece would be more interesting to look at than just a leg piece of characters standing there... Ha

    It's Boba Fett. He never 'just stands there'

    Good luck figuring the tattoo out! Will be interesting to see what you end up with

    Haha. Cheers mate. I know he never just stands there. He pulls off being a bad *** from doing nothing. But I am still stuck in the dilemma. An action filled leg piece or go for the mysterious Fett man...

    I love it! I have the mythosaur skull tattoo, like a lot of Fett heads.

    Yeah, they're cool. I was thinking about getting one of those. But I wanted the man himself.
