Anyone care to share pics of their tattoo sleeves? Quarter, half, full....ah what the hell any tattoo you want to share. They are all good.

After 15 years I finally found some inspiration and came up with some ideas for a second tattoo. I am going to do a sleeve down to just about 2 inches above my elbow. Going to incorporate part of a LP fretboard into some Japanaese clouds and water designs. The artist/owner at a local place agreed to do it so I gave him some ideas and things I want to see and agreed to give him artistic freedom to go from there. Gotta wait until 9/1 now, but it should be worth the wait. He is very good and he is a guitar player too!
Wife is getting some work done too so we are going together.

Share your pics! I guess I should get a pic of the one I have and get it up here....will do later.

Don't have any pics at the moment.

I've got at least four more I'd like to go with the three I have. I'd like to get a quarter-sleeve on my right arm... we'll see if I can talk the Mrs. into that. :laugh2:

I had some work on this one done yesterday. I'd laid off of it for more than a year after my sister died, so we did some detail work. There's still more sessions with some more color to be added and then an older one on the other side that needs updating. After we decide what we want to put there, he'll add some exotics to the empty space around and between the two. :D

The image is of the Tibetan Buddhist wrathful diety Palden Lhamo taken from a old tangka I found. She is the wrathful manifestation of Tara who protects from the baddies in dreams. Tara is placid, tries to reason with them; Palden Lhamo simply puts them down.

Awesome! The color and detail are excellent..... I like the image, Buddhists (sp?) have some fabulous art.

All the great ink pictured here, makes mine look very dull :D

Wow! The color and detail in those are amazing.....great artwork :dude:

Well the color is not as intense now as when we took those arm photos about 17 years ago. Also I shaved all the hair off my arm and put lotion on so the skin wouldn't be all dry, right before we took the photos. We also used a black velvet background and I wore a black shirt to make the tattoos stand out even more. The one of back piece was taken last year and I still need to have a few more hours of work done on it. And Thanks BTW!
