    like the title says, looking for a good high quality image...i'm getting my tattoo done in a couple weeks, and need to take my artist a picture, but most of the google images i found look funny to me...so, if you have one, post it please...

    i think i'm just gonna get it in solid red, with a white border that's highlighted with a black outline...but i havent decided yet...thanks

    If you find another image you like that isn't large enough, post it and I can vector it for you.

    wow, thanks process...that one looks fantastic...its going to be very similar to that, around each segment of the autobot logo i think will be a thin black line...but i know my artist can use that image...and all the sections look perfect on it too, not too big, not too small...

    thanks a ton...

    that was the one i was looking at so far, i like how sharp the angles are on it...

    and i definitely think solid is better then going for silver to red fade, ala g1 box art...

    Don't get white man. It has a tendency to vanish after awhile. I'll show you what I mean next time we hang out.

    Where are you gonna put it?

    hey process, do you have 20th anniversary optimus prime handy? his autobot logo on his shoulder is how i'd love mine to look...the first image you posted is very close, only the white on top of the head is longer, and the sides slope more...

    I do, actually. Hmm, unless you could find a picture of it for me to work with, I'll have to take a photo when I get home from work. The trick will be getting a shot of it perfectly perpendicular. I hope I don't have to resort to scanning it.

    Well, I tried using this shoulder logo. Turns out, between the inconsistent paint app and the smoothed contours, it would be difficult to get a clear insignia to use as a template.

    We could try a 2D adaptation of this- http://transformers.no.sapo.pt/wallpaper/simbolos/tfkc_03-1.jpg, akin to https://truereligion.freebase.com/view/wikipedia/images/en_id/5743394

    Or, you could using a highly saturated red ink and black ink, using your skin as the while, you could go back to the first example, http://shadowbot.com/2008/04/autobot_insignia_in_the_transf.php

    Ok lemme give you a bit of advice on red tattoo ink that my tat artist gave me.

    Your body produces a red pigment naturally,so any red ink you have done will be absorbed into your body eventually.I have the Ghostbusters logo tattooed on my right shoulder and I have to go and have it touched up every so often because of the red being absorbed.

    Just thought I'd give ya heads up,not wanting to discourage you or anything,just wanted to give you some advice.
