My first tattoo! Need Help!

Recommended Posts

So I recently decided that I would like to get an angel holding a cross on my forearm. However, in the future I would love to make this whole arm a sleeve with a holy theme. I was wondering if you you guys had any ideas what I could do with the rest of my arm to fit the theme? I was thinking about getting clouds to fill in the open space but I am open to any ideas! Thank you!

Welcome!

When you talk to artists about the angel/cross idea, also ask them about future ideas for a full sleeve. I hate to say Google or Pinterest, but that could give you some ideas. Perhaps you should get the tattoo, and then think about it for a while before jumping in to add something else for the sake of filler or to complete a sleeve. You don't need to have the entire sleeve concept worked out to just get the part you want now. If something isn't crying out to be added, don't force it.

I always thought if I were a religious person a whole arm (or more) done in a Byzantine-empire inspired style would be cool. Look to the ancients!
