I'm going to get at least a quarter-back tattoo portrait of Frank, I've decided... if not a full back piece. I've been contemplating this for, oh, 15 years or so. It's time to do it.

But I need a *great* picture. I'd like it to be guitar performance related, so live or studio, but here's kind of the gist of what I'm looking for...

-A low angle picture (looking up at Frank)
-Must include the *whole* guitar... so many pictures cut off the neck, or the body of the guitar.
-A full top-half of Frank, at least. Again, a lot of pictures cut off the top of his head, or side of an arm or something
-A good view of the guitar, body, fretboard, and all.
-I'd like to see Frank in to what he's playing (focused on the guitar)
-The Strat would be nice, but that's less critical.
-Prominent Imperial mustache is a must
-Color preferred

I've searched, and searched, and I've found so many pictures that are close, but they just aren't quite there. For a full back piece, you can imagine I'd be picky. I've been up and down the ZAPPA MEMORABILIA! thread, and a couple come close (unfortunately the thread dies at page 17 or something like that, can't see all the pages).

So, if you could please help and post some great pics, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Those first two are pretty sweet. Do you have larger versions?
