Freddy Krueger Pictures?

I know this is a bit odd, but wondering if anyone has suggestions on where I might find a good picture of Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund, of course). I'm actually planning on getting his face (and claws) tattooed on me. I've looked through google images and imdb, and there's a couple I like, but looking for some other options. This would be a portrait, and done in black and grey.

Obviously, I'd like his face, hat, glove, and if I'm REAL lucky, the top part of his sweater.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Haha, when I first read thru your post for some reason I imagined you getting his face tattooed on your face

Re: Freddy Krueger Pictures?

Why not slap a disc into your computer and get a screen cap that perfectly suits your needs?

Please think long and hard before getting such a tattoo.

Re: Freddy Krueger Pictures?

Not that weird of a request. If you know someone who can do good portrait work it will turn out nice. I won't say "please think about getting that tattoo" or anything like that... I have some nerdy horror tattoos too... hell I have the natty boh guy on my ankle (it was $5 from a real artist in a real shop and proceeds went to cancer research) so I know about stupid/fun tattoos. I will say please make sure you know the artist giving it to you and are positive he can do the work right. It could easily come out looking awful. I've seen some incredible horror portraits that come out looking great whether you're a fan of the subject matter or not.

Yes. Think long and hard about whatever you do - ever. And just when you think it's maybe a good idea, go home, have a glass of water and go to bed. Wake up the next day, with the self-satisfaction that you never did anything. And then you die.

Butt-Head: Hey Beavis. I bet when we get that reward money, we can like, see that movie about stiffies, and we can like, pay for our own tattoos.
Beavis: Yeah! Then we'll be cool.
Butt-Head: I'll get a tattoo of a butt.
Beavis: I'll get a tattoo of a butt *on* my butt!
Butt-Head: Oh yeah?
Beavis: Yeah!
Butt-Head: Well I'll get a tattoo of a butt that has a butt-shaped tattoo on it, and I'll get it right on my butt! That would be cool.
Beavis: Yeah, me too.

Re: Freddy Krueger Pictures?

Find a tattoo artist with talent. If you provide a picture of Freddy, a good artist will be able to draw a rendering how you want it to look. Don't get some random internet photo tattooed on you; have someone make it unique.

Make sure you specify Freddy Krueger and not Freddy Mercury.

Awesome JumpCutz; now I'm picturing a bunch of Nightmare on Elm Street scenes to the tune of "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights."

Yes, because never doing anything with your life is exactly the same as thinking twice about a questionable tattoo.

I've been rewatching them to try this, but the problem is - he's usually shown in dim lighting or with red/green lighting. But I've only rewatched 3, 4, and am half-way through 5 now. Still may find the right image. Open to suggestions, though.

Believe it or not, I tried that! That's why I was looking for some suggestions.

Thanks! I hadn't thought of looking for "wallpaper". More options - thanks!

I should have explained, I already have two portraits, one on each calf, and a HUGE Gil Elvgren pinup girl on my side, going from just below my armpit, all the way down to mid-thigh, plus one tattoo on each arm, and a huge Lambretta scooter on my back. So this isn't my first tattoo, and I've thought about it quite a bit. I've always been a big Freddy fan, and this would go on my left thigh, so it won't shock or offend anyone unless I decide to go back to short-short wearing days.

Thanks! I do know the artist doing it - he's extremely well-regarded, at least in Utah, but he travels all over, so I know that others think so too. His Name is Oak Adams and he has a shop in Salt Lake City, called Painted Temple. He did my other portraits (Buster Keaton on one calf, and Paul Weller on the other), and they are amazing! - not that I can take credit for that, other than lying still, but I've had many people stop me on the street last summer when I got them, admiring them...

As long as *I* don't think it's questionable, it's not on my face/neck, can't see the harm in it. Maybe I'm just a douche, though.

This is the best he ever looked in the series. No glove in the pic though.
