In 2020, it will be the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth. I would like a colour tattoo to celebrate this monumental event

by Fidelio in Barrow Upon Soar, England, United Kingdom

I have identified a suitable tattooist to perform the work.  He has stated that it will take a full day to complete, his daily rate is £650.  I have £150 to put towards the total.  I would like to seek contributions to enable me to have this tattoo.

The proposed tattoo will be the portrait of Beethoven painted by Joseph Carl Stieler in 1819-20 (profile pic). It is one of the best known of the many portraits, which were painted of the composer.  It is understood to be a very good likeness; only the hands had to be painted from memory, as Beethoven could not be persuaded to sit any longer. I will only have the face part of the portrait as my tattoo.
