Image showing tattooed lettering

I need to find the font for these names so I can tell my tattoo artist. I found one called 'Ancient German Gothic' but that only looked similar. I can't find the right one where the J's have the curve, the H has a little branch like thing on the top, the S's are like the S's. Anyone know the font?

    Tattoos can often be hand lettered based upon a font, but it's not the same as seeing a font in print. My guess would be you simply need to find a blackletter font you feel is close.

  • Thanks Scott and Andrew. I found a website tattoolettering.net and that gave me the font. After all it is called 'Medieval German'
