Please help me with my next tattoo...

Okay, so I want my next tattoo to be a somewhat classical depiction of Eve eating the all important apple of knowledge. (Please don't start some huge debate about whether or not she should have taken a bite, original sin, yadda, yadda, yadda. Let's just all accept the fact that I'm glad she was hungry. We can argue the bigger issues another day.) What I'm looking for are some images of Eve eating the apple. I would like the image to somehow include the snake. I want to use all the images to help me come up with ideas for the tattoo. Also, I remember some years ago seeing a photo of Cindy Crawford standing in the Garden of Eden with a Boa (snake, not feathers) wrapped around her - anyone got a link to this image?

Crawford, Kinski.

A search of "eve apple eden" on google images yields some interesting results. I especially like this stained-glass window.

maybe not what you're going for, but I always loved the images of them right after she ate it, the expulsion. Particularly Masaccio's Expulsion from the Garden of Eden. So ashamed and devastated, awesome.

I second adamrice's google search, there's TONS there.

This is one I found some time back, and bookmarked for just such an occasion. Not sure how to translate it into a tat, though.

(oh yeah, the main photo is mostly work safe, but the sidebar has tiny nudes)

Googling "fall of man" images led to this image, which you could adapt. (via)

Or, how about a rebus: ♀ + ⁓ + < > ➝ ☹

Not Eve, but Proserpine by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. I've always loved that image. If you like that style, you could have someone turn her into Eve.
