Hey guys,new to the site.I was thinking if it will be a good idea to add some background on my sleeve when I finish it or just leave some negative space.I had in my mind some Japanese type background like clouds but I don’t know how good it will turn out to be with my tattoos.I know I can just fill the blanks in the end with stars/dots or smaller tattoos but that isn’t my cup of tea.If anyone can share their opinions I will be grateful.Thank you!

Personally I think adding Japanese tattoos to it wouldn't combine well. I would definitely stay with old-school for the whole sleeve.

I think you best add as many individual small old-school tattoos to it, up until there is almost no blank space. Just tight them all together.

Find a good old-school specialist tattoo artist that you can trust and let him play with the blank areas.

I would also recommend you take a look at some old-school sleeves just so you see what I mean (many of them have no backround) and create a vision of your own.
