Thoughts/help on sleeve I want

Recommended Posts

I want to get a sleeve with different meanings on it and idk if it would look weird because of the coloring. Need advice:

Part 1) I want American flag ripping out the skin on my upper arm on the outside

part2) I want some sort of either baseball or a hunting tattoo on the inside of the bicep/ or could complete the American flag around it

part 3) ducks (mallards/shovelers) on my forearm on top and my wrist being the water line and them eatting grass underwater from my hand and fingers. 

Part 4) on the underside of the forearm, something to do with either baseball/ducking hunting/fishing

Since everything has a different color, especially with the American flag, I was wondering if it would look weird or any suggestions anyone would have on this. Anything helps!  Thank you!!

I could see this working with the right artist.

*Red* white blue, and then for the ducks green brown blue (depending on the type).

I'd be less worried about the colors than the amount of imagery/number of images. Generally less is more. But I could totally see a flag rip on the upper arm, and a duck/water OR baseball scene on the lower. All three on one arm (if I've read you correctly) seems really difficult.

Everything's down to finding the right artist though.

Definitely! And it won't be cheap to get it done well either.  Take your time and do lots of research on possible artists.  Make sure that they have examples in their portfolios of similar work.  Done right it could be outstanding, or done poorly a disaster.

Would it be better to have a duck scene at the time and flag on the forearm?!?

That kind of thing that I'd work out with your artist. I'm in no way artistic and besides, my tastes may be drastically different than yours.

    • Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo, the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head, perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep, eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo, bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo, I bring skittles and M&M's, I also bring a banana to eat half way through, eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better. don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.  
    • I like the new guy's style, too.  Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending.  I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck. 
    • Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good.  Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns.  But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest.  The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly.  So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.     And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo.  Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.   Thanks.  Pawel.
