Wes’ Traditional Tattoo Sleeve

Keeping it Light Hearted

Wes came with some loose ideas for his sleeves. He liked a few different ideas so we made a list and and went for it.

On the list was skulls, Indian heads, mermaids, whiskey, and coffee. With a sleeve like this it is pretty straight forward. Start with the most visible part of the arm. The inner forearm is prime real estate.

Choosing the Indian head first we went with a skull and headdress. After that, we kept the same process going for the rest of the sleeve. Pick a spot, draw tattoo to fit that spot.


The next phase is to start on the background. We should be getting to in February.

Thanks for looking.
