Let's help Dai get a Green Day tattoo!

...or not, but do you really want to be that lame?

Okay, here's the thing: I've decided to get Billie Joe tattooed on my thigh, but I'm having a really hard time finding a picture that is right and usable. I want something like this:

[IMG]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r174/xdaianax/Tattoo/7189449910_3f15057937.jpg[/IMG]

But I need a larger picture, cause that one is too small to use, considering the tattoo is supposed to be twice as big. I am not quite comfortable starting a thread here asking for help, but I've already gone through all 50 pages of the Billie picture thread, the entire GDA vault, Tumblr, Google, and I've posted it in the requests thread here but no luck, so this seems to be my last resort.[b] I need good quality and large pictures of him in that position.[/b]

I got Alex's permission to make this thread and I ask of the rest of the team to please leave this open for 2 or 3 days, I know it's not the right place for this request but I am really running out of options. And in my defense, it[i] is[/i] Green Day-related :P


But seriously, please.

I don't know if my suggestion would work, but you could try maybe resizing the picture that you just posted above and see if it's still high quality like that. If it doesn't work then I don't know...

The screenshots I could manage from my computer are not large enough. And also for some reason my computer does not take screenshots from videos I am playing (unless they are on a web page). When I past it onto photoshop or paint or whatever, it shows a black screen.

You can't enlarge a picture to twice its size and still have it be good enough quality for a tattoo. I am basically asking a few kind souls to look through their personal stash of pictures.

(Chances are you've already done this but...) Find that picture on Google Images, then click on it and on the right there should be an option to search by image. It might come up with bigger sizes or at the very least, images which are visually similar. :)

a full body image would be best. Images where his body is cutoff wouldn't look great being a tattoo.

I'll see what I can find :)

Edit: I like Sarcasm's picture the best (above me), but here are some suggestions (I hope they help!):

you said you couldn't take screenshots, so I assumed you meant the function in VLC. I figured someone could use the body in the picture I posted and the face from another. The BJ monster if you will.

Great idea for a tattoo. I suppose if you have looked through the GDA Picture Vault already, there's no need to post pics from there? I used to save them all on my external drive so a large amount of pictures I owe are from there. I shall have a look for pictures from different sources though.

I can't help, but good luck I guess. Billie should be on everybody's thighs.
