Sharing a Sleeve, 20 years In the Making

Recommended Posts

Hello Last Sparrow Forum.  Got my first tattoo around 1999 at 222 Tattoo in San Francisco.  (Just to put the time in context: this was so long ago, I had to type out my idea, print it out, and FEDEX it to the shop.  Also, I actually picked up the phone, and called to make an appt)  Stopped getting tattooed around 2002.  At that point, I had an above the elbow half sleeve and 1/2 chest panel.  I didn't get tattooed again for 15 years.  Jumped back in in 2017, when I saw the amazing things that people were pulling off now.  I feel pretty fortunate to have gotten tattooed by some really cool artists.  Finished my right arm this last Christmas, and I have 98% of a full chest done.  I didn't plan on a sleeve or a chest piece when I got my first tattoo 20 years ago.  I had NO plan, but in my opinion - it's a testament to the power of great artists that my patchwork collection of dissimilar ideas can live together in some cohesive way.  I put a bunch of pictures down below.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing. 

And some Deutsche, too!

Thanks.  Since I got my first tattoo on this arm at 222, I thought it was super cool when I got the chance to have Eddy Deutsche do the last two tattoos to finish the sleeve.  Ended up being like bookends on a story.  That's why I kind of hit the gas and did two session in Dec, just because I was able to get in.  Didn't want to miss the chance. 

Also, it was an elbow and a weird gap fill that I tasked him with.  I really wanted a master level person, just because I had no idea how to fill 2 such weird spaces.  So, when I was able to book with Eddy, it was perfect.

    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
    • it looks fine, let it heal for 4 to 6 weeks , when you are breathing, moving, trying to get a pic, it's going to look off, crooked, whatever, it's on a human  body ! relax, like I said, it looks great. it looks  straight to me.
    • Hello  So 3 days ago i got done my tattoo. All seemed fine till today. I removed the tattoo protection sticker and i noticed its uneven! In my opinion its not written in one straight line. What annoys me the most is the last word ‚heart‘. Its so off the line and now i dont know what to do! Can i fix that or will it go back into line when healed? Please help me out.. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0DPNH-Sr9T7knIxZQWeSrMx-A
