Hey guys, I am new here. I posted with a question here once before, but I have not yet made my 10 posts. I am sorry if this is in the wrong spot to ask, but I was hoping you guys may be able to help me brainstorm on ideas for a sleeve. I can post pictures of what I currently have on the arm I want sleeved, but I am unsure of what I can do to tie everything together. Hopefully you guys can help me out. Thanks!

Welcome!

It would be best to discuss ideas with the tattoo artist. Do you have an artist picked out? If you don't we can suggest some artists in your general area. Where are you located?

I am in southwestern Vermont, and I do have an artist I normally go to, but when we spoke he said I could do skulls, roses, and webs. I am looking to do all of those, but I also am interested in having more to it. I want to do black and grey for my sleeve with red thrown in occasionally. I am just not sure what else to fill a sleeve with that wouldn't be just a bunch of random images.

There's something to be said for randomness, too. But I get it if that's not your thing.

I like randomness, but what I meant was like I don't want a cross on the same arm as skulls and the mark of the beast as an example you know? I do like the idea of controlled chaos (or randomness) though.

Curious. Where did you get tattooed already? (Born and raised Vermonter)

If you're up for a trip to NYC, that's your best option for artists. But Congress St. and Hobos in NH are not too far and put out solid work.

Raz-A-Tat in Bennington. I have known the artist for many years, and he has done alot of awesome work on friends. I may be willing to take a trip to get it done, but that will depend on the work I see. You guys know how it is. Also @ Serenity: that isn't a bad idea, as I said I would like to make my left arm a black and grey sleeve with some red splashed in, so a dagger, maybe with a few spots of blood would be great. Is it okay for me to post pictures here of what I have on my arm currently? Idk if that would help, but I really appreciate the suggestions from you guys.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
