After many years of planning and thinking about it I've finally started my nautical themed sleeve. Loving the colours so far!

Great start!  Is that a specific lighthouse?  Looks like Barnegat Lighthouse.

Looks nice!
Life has three aspects: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

Paradox: Life is a mystery; don't waste time figuring it out.
Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure
Change: Know that nothing stays the same.

It's based on Smeatons Tower. A famous and stunning lighthouse in Plymouth, not to far from where I live. Love the colour and subtle curve up its side. Can't wait to add more to the sleeve in a couple of weeks time.

As much as I like grey work tattoos, everyone in my area seems to have them.  I wanted something more old School, traditional and bright. My tattooist is awesome and is almost as excited about this sleeve as I am.

On the same day two other elements were started as pictured below, more being added during next  Mondays all day session. Can't wait,

Personally I would never get a tattoo but I admire some that I see.  Yours is very distinctive and colourful and it brings back memories of a trip round the Devon and Cornwall coasts when there were other lighthouses. I seem to remember you are based in Exeter - lovely cathedral.
