(There's probably 1,000 threads on this, I searched and couldn't find any though)

For those of you with 1/2, 3/4, full, or anything in between sleeves, post a pic. Ideally a pic of each arm, or a pic of both together if you can manage it. Just want to see how different styles and images look alongside each other! I'm slowly filling up one arm with traditional designs and am brainstorming what I want to do with my other arm (pics of my arm would be a sorry sight, maybe someday :rolleyes: ).

EDIT: I'm even cool with pics of awesome sleeves that aren't on you.

What type of look do you all prefer on arms? Small individual pieces (flash like, great example above) OR big pieces connected with each other (like Denis has)?

After doing a bunch of searching I can't believe there aren't any other threads like this!  I was hoping that there would be a thread similar to the back piece thread for arms.

Would like to see more pictures of cohesive sleeves that work as one piece of art.  I've got a collection of images I've saved for my own reference, but it would be great to see what the LST community can put forward.  To help things along.... here's some images from my collection!

Cool thread - lots of great examples in here of sleeve or arm tattoo ideas - i myself am a fan of what you see in that posting from @DavidR negative space in between those small to medium size pieces just works for me - i actually dislike when folks take a sleeve like seen in the posting and fill em with stars and dots - but to each his own - i can certainly appreciate a finely tattooed japanese sleev or these geometric style sleeves - not a fan of the 'blacked out' look

@Rob I, sleeve goals! Your arm looks so nice. Plan to do the same with the other arm? 

Since starting this thread, I still don't really have much to contribute. :44_frowning2: Sometime within the next few months once my finances get in better shape (working part time and filling in a few shifts at my old job here and there) I'd like to start working on more traditional one shots and filling some gaps, since my arms are going to be all traditional.

Thank you @suburbanxcore !!!

Jebb Riley did the rose in the ditch along with the Panther. And yes, Ron Wells did the reaper. Good eye!  

I would LOVE to get tattooed by Martin again. Such a great tattooer and a super solid human. Really enjoyed getting tattooed by him and love the dragon he did for me. Thanks!!!

    • looks normal to me, it will take at least 6 weeks to heal and more to settle in.
    • hi just got this two weeks ago wondering if it’s healing normal or does it look weird 
    • I have a date set to get this design on my forearm. I’ve heard that fine lines and pointillism can sometimes blur easily so I am a bit worried that the grey pointillism leaf will blur out quickly. Any thoughts on if this will happen and how long it would take? Additionally, if this were to happen would it be possible to touch it up and somehow make it more crisp? For instance, by outlining the leaf with a thicker black line in the future if it were to blur? I just don’t want to end up with a grey blob I can’t do anything about on my arm in 5 years!
