  1. My medium of choice is pen and ink, or graphite- I am aspiring tattoo artist, but maybe in the very distant future. My brother in-law really likes my work and commissioned me to design a full arm sleeve with elements from a story he told, that he could then take to a tattoo artist to "recreate". I was unable to get in touch with him for a few weeks and decided to just create an illustration for him. Now I am back in touch and he has given me his measurements. I feel kind of bad, but he really wants the tattoo to be close to the original work (hence not going straight to the tattooist from the start).The illustration has a lot of meaningful elements and symbolism that I don't want to scrap but the placement of these elements are far from fitting onto an arm. Without having to show you my illustration, could someone tell me some sort of "principle of design" I can adhere to? Something to keep in mind besides the obviousness of the shape and stretching, how to keep the foreground and background from melding too much? Im sorry if this is vague but I really am unsure how to describe it.

  3. Sleeve designs

    I am curious about full and half sleeve tattoos. I have seen so many different themes and unique designs. My question is do you as an individual come up with the design idea, do you and the artist dream it up together, or does the artist have the designs in mind or just dream them up based on the interests of the tattooee? I personally don't have an artistic bone in my body, but I like the designs when I see them. I would love to get a unique half sleeve, but am looking for some input on how others go about deciding on what they end up with. Thanks for your input
