Looking for the right sleeve tattoo designs? There are so many factors that go into the sleeve tattoo design that is right for you.
First, you should consider the time and money investment involved in these types of tattoos. These factors alone are especially important as any tattoo that takes up your whole sleeve, from your shoulder down to your wrist, will typically take hundreds of hours and can cost thousands of dollars. That brings us to another point: make sure you have the complete budget for you tattoo before you begin the job. As sleeve work costs more and usually takes more work than the average type of tattoo, you definitely don't want to run out of your money while you're only half-way done with the expected job. This happens more often than you would expect. So just make sure you "think before you ink!"
Another obvious ingredient to your sleeve tattoo is the design. The great thing about these tattoos if that even though the take up much space and impose quite a presence on your body, they can either be predominately masculine or feminine. It all depends on you and what you want to represent. It is not a gender specific thing. Some female sleeve tattoos go the hard-core route and get skull tattoos, some men get them with beautiful, vibrant colors. It depends if you want to represent the more Hippie-style or more of that Punk look.
Some of the most beautiful designs can be represented as Japanese sleeve tattoos. Many people opt for the Japanese tattoos as the symbols are elegant and have deep meaning. A great addition for many women is the flower tattoo. Many women want to express their femininity by with flower designs.
Just remember that half sleeves or quarter are an option if you don't plan to go all the way. These can look very good and tasteful if you don't want everything to be exposed.
