Title: New Sleeve started!
Post by: Adamski1972 on February 02, 2017, 07:56:50 AM
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.

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.

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.

Looks great. I have a leg sleeve. Or sock as some call it.
Here it is just after completion about 2 years ago

The leg sleeve/sock looks awesome Scotty-86. My sleeve is coming along nicely and only have a couple of day sessions left to do on it.

Wow Scotty, that is some serious sock! 

While I really like black/grey/white tattoos my own are all in color.

And, my tattoos are not "art"; they all represent some major accomplishment/experience/love in my life.

My full back collage is almost complete - only one more session - when it is complete I may post it if you guys want to see it.

My tattoo sleeve is now finished and I love it. Some idiot called me a thug the other day but quite frankly I don't care.

wow Adamski!  That is great!  I am envious of you.  I wish that I had the courage to have visible tattoos but just think that I am too old to have full sleeves.

Great tattoo!  Regarding being called a thug, it's just wrong to assume tattoos (and a bald head) make anyone a thug.
