baxter's empire sleeve tattoo

Postby mellowgerman on Tue Sep 29, 2009 3:05 pm

Hi everyone,
Jefferson Airplane ('66-'71) has been my main obsession in life for the last 5 years or so.
I've been contemplating an airplane tattoo for some time now and have decided I'm going to cover my entire right arm in After Bathing At Baxter's and Blows Against The Empire album art; more specifically the doodles inside the Baxter's CD booklet and the art from the bonus lyrics insert of the 2005 Blows Against The Empire CD.
I'm just wondering if anyone could help me get some larger pictures of this stuff, because the only version I have of it is in the CD booklets and I'd like my tattoo artist to have something a bit bigger to look at. Below are some crappy cellphone pictures of what I'm talking about.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cool idea for a tat!

I bet your artist could enlarge those drawings and then clean them up.

I'll have to talk to him about it. He's super talented. He's done all the work on my dad and brother; crazy detail and creativity :)

I've got the LP of "Empire" with the lyrics book. I'll post some scans here when I've got time. (Some Grace Slick drawings in this one, fans!)

Here's two of the Patti Landres drawings from the Blows booklet.

Ah,the White-winged Tits!Scary.Perhaps as a symbol of elusive object of sexual desire or flying nurturing mother.

Oh,mum.Why did you leave me?

thanks very much! it would be great to also get the one with the man coming out of the teeth and maybe the egg snatcher, although i guess that one isn't too detailed so the little print out of the cd booklet may suffice

The winged tits look very Hans Belmer don't they? There's no less than three sets of them in the album's artwork. I'll post the other two pictures soon.

Got the first chunk of baxter's stuff today! I'll post some pictures once I can get someone to take a good photo... it's tough for me to get a good shot that does it justice...

Looks great!
