In my opinion, the tail is too busy too serve as a good looking frame, but if you are going to do it, some suggestions.
Like mentioned, have the tail sitting vertically. This will make it more aesthetically pleasing, with both sides being equal. That will also mean the picture being used will need to be one shot in portrait, and not landscape.
Clean the tail up. Remove the tabs and foam. I would also dremel off the protrusions and sand smooth the trunk opening. Since this is going to be the location of the picture, it will look worlds better and not block parts of the image. This will also mean that you will need to throw a few coats of paint on it to finish it off.
So, if you are going to do it, DO IT. Don't just throw an image in the tail. Turn the tail into an appropriate frame, then put an image in it.
