Default Help me choose an Obi Wan Kenobi tattoo

Obi Wan is my favorite Star Wars character and one of my top few favorite fictional personalities of all time. He's the only character who, across every one of the 6 films truly stands out to me as likable. Not to mention the Clone Wars and EU.

I want to get a tattoo of his likeness. Preferrably something exciting (action scene). Any ideas? Refer to any scene of any appearance if you can't find an image I'll hunt it down.

This is the nearest I can find to what I want so far:

Obi-Wan rocks!

This isnt the exact shot but close to this one, from ROTS. I just love this pose, always thought he looked cool


I also love these:





As far as animated Obi-Wan goes (dunno if you're considering CW Kenobi or not), these are two of my faves:




I'll keep looking, see if i find anything else i think could be of use to you

Where's that second picture from, Bim? Never seen it before. Is it photoshopped?

I dunno exactly, i think it was a pic for promotion. Originally i thought it was a deleted scene of sorts, but i never found it, so i just assumed it was something done for promotion. It's still awesome though

Thanks Bim!

I really like this one!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


I love his armored look. I also love his rivalry with Darth Maul. I know it was short lived in the films but they really fleshed it out in TCW and the EU.

So here's what I'm thinking so far:

I'm a big fan of both Alec and Ewan's performances as the character. So I was hoping the tattoo would show that. This image is honestly exactly the age/depiction I'd like:




it's unfortunate that it's a figurine, but I figure my artist can just do his own sketch of this style with the lightsaber ignited.

And as yet another way to make it more unique I was thinking of stylizing it like these images:



kinda like water colors and japanese kanji.

idk, what do you guys think?

oh and it would be going on my upper arm/shoulder.

That Mythos statue is amazing, i bought it. It hs both Sir Alec and Ewan heads so you can choose depending on your mood. It's an incredible look for sure. This one's a good pose:


I also love the Obi in armor look from CW. This is obviously a manip, but part of me wishes we would have seen something similar to it in the movies:


Find yourself a great artist, and go for it. You must show us the final product though
