Halfsleeve

Wanting to get a half sleeve done...

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I have recently became obsessed with getting a half sleeve done. I have a few tattoos now but I am really wanting to expand. I see things I like online so I take photos of it so I can show someone what I like. I joined here with the hope that some one might be able to steer me in to right direction of finding an artist in the central texas area that does good quality tattoos. I would really like to get the kind of half sleeve that could make magazines. Anybody have any recommendations?

No that's what I came here for. I guess what I mean to say is I just want really good work. I look at a lot of tattoos. I see a lot of good work but I also see a lot of bad work. Thanks for the recommendations. I will check those places out.

what do you mean do I have my own opinions? i have a lot of opinions I am just trying to find out who in my area does quality work. since I don't have all the time in the world to drive around to every tattoo artist i thought I would get some recommendations.

Everyone working at Rock of Ages is good, but they also each have their own styles. After flipping through some portfolios and Instagrams you should be able to narrow down what you do and don't like about any artist. Make your decision from there.

What you get out of tattoos has a lot to do with the effort you put into getting them. Coming here and saying you want a good tattoo when you seemingly can't be bothered doing any legwork yourself, not even to the extent of looking through portfolios on the internet and seeing what you respond to, doesn't bode well for you.

I have done plenty of leg work that why I came here. I haven't been able to find anyone buy searching online that I feel does good work. I came on here to get some input from other people. some people here have been helpful because they mentioned places that I haven't found in my searching. I have looked through countless portfolios but still haven't found someone I like. Thank you Graeme for telling me the obvious things I should do but thats not being very helpful in my search for recommendations.

Every shop/artist recommended here does good quality work. If you don't like any of them, maybe you could give an example of what you're looking for, since you mentioned before that you've seen a lot of good work?

just a thought but you might consider getting full sleeves. opens up more design options, but I realize this might not be for everyone. I kept mine three fingers from my wrists which lets me wear long sleeved shirts when I occasionally need to cover my ink

    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
    • it looks fine, let it heal for 4 to 6 weeks , when you are breathing, moving, trying to get a pic, it's going to look off, crooked, whatever, it's on a human  body ! relax, like I said, it looks great. it looks  straight to me.
    • Hello  So 3 days ago i got done my tattoo. All seemed fine till today. I removed the tattoo protection sticker and i noticed its uneven! In my opinion its not written in one straight line. What annoys me the most is the last word ‚heart‘. Its so off the line and now i dont know what to do! Can i fix that or will it go back into line when healed? Please help me out.. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0DPNH-Sr9T7knIxZQWeSrMx-A
