Smile Good choice for sailboat tattoo?

I realized this is stretching the definition of sailing related but who better to judge than sailors?

File:JSJ-volunteer turning.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I love the looks of these boats and this shot of the Volunteer is just the angle and type of boat I would love to have as a tattoo. I think the detail would obviously have to be dumbed down a bit but I wonder how this would turn out, maybe a bit of ocean and sky around it for some color since I think the boat was white hull with period typical off white sails for the race.

I chose this particular boat because I love the lines and the set of the sails, plus its one of the ones with a good high quality close up photo of the angle I want plus a lot of paintings to show the proper colors. I've seen a lot of pics of square rigged stuff for tattoos, but not so many of the truly sexy old school Americas Cup boats.

I do fear this will be a tad expensive though.
