Hello everyone, started sleeve (First Tattoo) Opinions?

Recommended Posts

Hi , first sorry for my english. been a long time lurker, never had the time to join in. 

i always loved sleeve tattoos, black and grey ones especially, so after 3 years of thinking about it, i finally started my sleeve. 

thing is> its my first ever tattoo, its still red/brownish even after 4 days of healing, and i dont know what should i worry about, if the work done is of good quality or how it will end up, i am not enough experienced to judge, so i thought i show you a pic and maybe you can tell me

also any suggestions to how and what should i tattoo the rest of the arm ? i have so many ideas but not enough space on my arm :)). 

anyway here is a photo , let me know your thoughts? (btw its still wrapped)

Looks great!

thanks man, should i be worried because it still doesn't look Black/grey as intended to be? its been 5 days and its too dark and brownish, the end result will be better? more realistic appearance? the artist is doing a good job? i am booked to complete whole sleeve in the upcoming 2 months

so i took off the wrapping and washed it, its a bit lighter now but still its more of a brownish-reddish color, its been 6 days,    will it get black/grey in a week or two ? or i shouldnt expect much improvement ? . 

also i feel that the eyes aren't realistic because of the color, should i make the pupils more black and the rest dark yellow/orange ? 

am booked for another 5 sessions in coming 2 months, with the same artist, how would you rate the work done so far?

and i am really having alot of thoughts about how should i continue the forearm and the rest of sleeve, i attached an idea below, do you think it would flow with the rest?

as for what to add to it: the lion is *the* most powerful image, the rose is subsidiary. anything you add below the rose is going to have to compliment them, not compete with them. I think the owl isn't that strong as compared with the lion. but I'm 2 beers deep here, and no artist!

Keep in mind that photo of the owl is highly photoshopped to be saturated so the eyes pop out more and the blacks contrast.  I like your lion. It's bad.

thanks man . but its supposed to be a tiger not a lion :)). why you think its bad? i have my next tattoo-session in 2 days.still deciding on the owl

    • welcome ! what island ? and we will need pics of your tattoos ! 🙂
    • Hi everyone, my name is Joseph and Im a tattooaholic. one day when I was 23 I realized...."I can do whatever the F*&K I want" and got a tattoo. then another one. and another one. and now im two sleeves deep with a calve sleeve and a full leg sleeve on the way. along with several pieces on my back and chest. absolute addiction along with weight lifting. its helped ward of depression and releases serious endorphins, the effects of a recent tattoo last several months. glad to be part of a large tattoo community and looking forward to contributing to the site. cheers everyone!
    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
