If you are looking for sleeve tattoos, I assume you are about to make a big commitment. On the one hand, I would like to congratulate you. I know it takes courage to do something like that and in my personal opinion, tattoo sleeves look great on both women and men. On the other hand, I want to warn you that this is a pretty risky decision. Of course, a person can never tell for sure how he is going to feel about his tattoos in 10 or 15 years and there is no reliable way to make sure that you are not going to regret your decision.
This applies to small tattoos too, but the matters with them are still way less complicated. First of all, if you ever decide to remove a small tattoo by laser it will not dry out your wallet. Meanwhile getting rid of sleeve tattoos requires a huge financial investment. Second, unless it is on your face, small tattoo is easy to hide: for example, permanent paintings on your wrist could be covered with jewelry or watch. Quite to the contrary, keeping sleeve tattoos from the eyes of your employer could be rather difficult and cause certain inconveniences, especially during the summer heat.
Now if you have already taken all the drawbacks and benefits into consideration and you still think getting a sleeve tattoo is a good idea, here are a several questions you have to answer yourself before scheduling an appointment with a tattoo artist. First of all, decide whether you want a sleeve that runs from your shoulder straight to your handbreadth or just a half/quarter of it. By the way, keep in mind that there is a couple of ways to make sleeve tattoos. Some people start with a several random designs and then fill the empty spaces until the hand is fully covered. I think the greatest benefit of this strategy is that you get the chance to influence the final result for a longer time, hence being able to adjust it to your changing life, thoughts and believes.
However, even if you are starting with a few relatively independent tattoos you should try to figure out what could be the uniting theme. Otherwise you will end up with a real chaos on your hand and sleeve tattoos look way better when each picture is in harmony with the others. Now enough of advices, go ahead and check out our gallery!
