SLEEVE TATTOO

If you're only interested in a tiny, hidden tattoo, you can probably get away with going to most artists. But when it comes to prominent, large-scale designs, like a sleeve tattoo, the most important factor is choosing the right artist for the job. "There are so many amazing tattoo artists who specialize in different styles," Wachob says. "It wouldn’t make sense to approach an artist who does traditional Americana and ask them to do something delicate." In other words, find an artist whose work and overall aesthetic fits that vibe you're going for.

Sleeve tattoos are usually a collaboration between a tattoo artist and customer to demonstrate a personal and unified artistic theme. Other times, a sleeve is created when a person has many smaller but separate tattoos on their arm and later has them connected with a unified background design to form a sleeve. Planned sleeves generally require many long hours of tattooing and can take weeks, months, or years to complete depending on if an individual wants to take the approach of one large design or smaller ones that interconnect.

DESIGN

Legs are an excellent location for a tattoo design because they are easily shown off or covered up, depending on your mood or the occasion. There's also plenty of space to fill, especially on the fleshy thigh area, although unless you often wear short shorts and skirts, it won't be seen very often. The calf also works great for smaller works; other places such as the ankle and knee can also play host to subtle body art. These areas don't have much protective muscle or tissue though, so be prepared for some pain!

Although some organizations have created these bans, tattoo sleeves have become so popular that several clothing companies have produced apparel that simulates the look of tattoo sleeves using transparent mesh fabric printed with tattoo designs. These sleeves can provide a temporary feeling of having a sleeve and help someone decide if it is something they truly want. Additionally, these companies find customers in children and teenagers who may want to mimic someone they idolize or wear the sleeves for a costume. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
