Default Request for valve pics...

this is going to sound stupid, but i was hoping someone would have some black and white "clip art" style pictures of tubes.....

something looking like a technical drawing of a valve would even suffice... the simpler the better.


I'm just trying to get some ideas for a new tattoo. If you've got something that would be cool, please post

thanks,

-Maz

A tube tattoo would look a bit, er... phallic, wouldn't it?

Why not just check out some tube datasheets?

Hmmm.... a valve tatoo? Whatever floats your boat .

just use MSPaint -- for the top and bottom halves use the oval tool, then snip in half with the box select tool, then connect and draw in the lines. Will give you a nice *.bmp file.

Well Maz,

How about these for a start. You might be able to tweak them in photoshop to get what you want.

Glad you liked them. Unfortunately they're all I have at the moment, but if I find some more in my travels, I'll post them, on one condition. I'd like to see a pic of your tat when it's done.

Cheers
