Turt99 - Cycling Related Leg Sleeve

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I just recently got my first tattoo, I went to Hollywood at Skintricate, in Streetsville Ontario.

The Tattoo that I got is a Tricycle with a Triforce in the background.

Now that I have got this tattoo and it has healed up (I will have to get a touch up, as it scabbed up pretty good and some of the brown pulled out.) I have my next appointment booked for November 19th. My plan is to use the same style and add more bikes around my full lower leg. The following images (sorry if I am linking them incorrectly) give a good idea of the placement of the images. Each of the bikes will be in the same blue color but will have different colors surrounding them. I will be doing the ones visible form the outside of my leg first and then adding the rest as I have time and money. At the end I will fill with abstract blocks of colors that match the different bikes as well as smaller shapes or symbols.

Any thoughts or comments on this plan.

That trike is really cool and unique. If you continue with images that each have a unique style, this could look great. Go with what you love.

More inspiration and ideas.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

The Tig, you mention "images each with a unique style" that would be interesting too. But the plan is that they will all be from the same artists and will be in the same style as the tricycle.

The only part that I am thinking over is the color schemes at this point. The current plan is that the bikes will always be blue but have different accent colors (Green, Purple, Red, Yellow), but I did have the thought to make both the bikes and accent colors change, I just thought that seemed too busy for me.

Hey, I like that even better. Your artist's style is enjoyable to see more of. From the paper images, I thought you were going with basic silhouettes. I think you are on the right track here (not that what I think really counts). If you do one at a time, the next color scheme will just kinda' happen.

I like it, the tattoo as well as the subject, bikes are cool!

I think sticking to the same colour for the bikes and changing the colours around them makes sense. It'll make it easier to identify the main objects.

Which bike is next? Keep us posted!

The next one is the larger one with the light on the front, it would be the outside of the leg you can see it in the first picture of the plan.

That one is is going to have a green background on it.

In the new year I will then do the Penny Farthing which is the one with the huge wheel, I believe it will have a purple background.

The other 2 will have red and yellow but I'm not sure how long until I get back to have those done.

I have an appointment for the beginning of Jan and the beginning of Feb to add more bikes, and background will be added to this second bike during those sessions as well.

    • 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.
