Sharing a Sleeve, 20 years In the Making

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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.
