This sort of tattoo is quite a commitment. They involve hours of work in the chair, concentrated effort by the artist and lots of money on the part of the canvas. Sleeves have come and gone in popularity but have gained more popularity in recent years as tattoos have gained traction over the years. Once someone chooses to get a sleeve, they often opt to get another sleeve and often continue by getting chest pieces and their backs done.

They say cats stand for the wilder side of nature, free and independent, enigmatic and mysterious. The ancient Egyptians considered the cat a god. A lunar creature, it represents the feminine, magic, night time, in contrast to the masculine and all that is solar. The total opposite of the dog, in fact, that other domestic animal par excellence, the symbol of loyalty and protection.

Take a peek into Lucrezia Urtis‘ new school tattoo portfolio and you’ll see romance as a common theme. Her cartoon-style women hug men who are only introduced by their silhouette. This balance of areas of fine details with blank shapes is informed by Urtis’ training in graphic design. “I think that the composition,” she writes, “is the base of every project, made with paper, concrete or on skin. Everything (must be harmonic) in its right place.”
A tattoo is an ink design added into the skin, generally with the help of a needle. This procedure has prehistoric roots, it has been used by people for thousands of years, in various forms. Examples can be seen in the majority of human cultures, and despite some societal stigma, tattoos are getting to be ubiquitous in the West, with an estimated 25 percent of American people are wearing at least one by the end of the twentieth century.
The number of design options when it comes to tattoos is amazing. Many people tend to gravitate towards wildlife animal tattoos not only due to their love of animals itself but also due to the vast significance that these tattoos have. It is a fact that animals have had a big role to play in the mythology of many cultures and have been endowed with many qualities. Therefore depending on what you want your animal wildlife tattoo to denote you can make your choice.
The popularity of the Koi fish tattoo goes back to an old Chinese and Japanese myth about a huge school of a thousand Koi fish swimming upstream in China's Yellow River. When the little guys reached a huge waterfall, most of the fish turned back. A few of the Koi stuck it out, however, and after 100 years, one of them finally succeeded in leaping to the top of the falls. It impressed the gods so much they turned him into a dragon. The Koi therefore symbolizes strength, bravery, and perseverance. 
There are certain sayings, which you wish to reveal out to the outside world, but can’t say directly through your mouth. The best thing is to get your desired saying tattooed on your skin.

You can use different fonts to write scriptures, so that you are able to create a unique design at the end.

Images of a phoenix are widely used by many tattoo lovers and artists. However, little is known about this mythical bird, that refused to leave the paradise and abstained from the forbidden fruit. A phoenix is known to live for 500 years and builds a nest of aromatic twigs when it gets tired. The bird sets its abode on fire to be consumed by a self made funeral pyre. Within three days, a phoenix rises from the ashes and is reborn as a new soul. Many who get a phoenix tattoo interpret this as a process of overcoming hurdles in life and emerging as an edified person. A phoenix tattoo is a symbol of grace, virtues and victory over evil (represented by death).

Want a tattoo which symbolizes strength? Then this probably won’t come as a surprise, but a lion tattoo is a logical choice. The king of the animals is famous for its ridiculous power, but it’s also a symbol of wisdom, justice and dignity. In ancient Greece lions were viewed as guardians, while in Egypt Sekhmet, the warrior goddess was depicted as a lioness. Celebrities with lion tattoo: Shemar Moore, Robbie Williams.
A “modern” tribal tattoo is a bit different from a traditional tribal tattoo. Most people nowadays forgo intricate and sprawling tribal tattoos in favor of smaller ones that portray a very specific image. Many often see tribal tattoos as just a style akin to a writing style. For example, a person would take a random image and then ask the artist to simply “convert” it into a tribal design, much to the dismay of tattoo lovers well-versed in the true meaning of tribal tattoos.
Sleeves are not easily covered unless you have a long sleeved shirt on. Some people choose to stop their sleeve before their watch so that people in the workforce can’t see it, even when they shake someone’s hand. Other people choose to extend the work past their wrists and onto their hands. It’s a personal preference and different for every individual.
Sleeves aren’t very easily hidden so make sure to check the policies at work to ensure you can’t get in trouble for new body art. You may be able to hide the pieces pretty well at first but as time goes by and more of your skin is covered, you’ll definitely not be able to cover up the sleeve forever. More than anything, have fun and enjoy the process of creating this masterpiece that will be part of your body forever.
Glasgow artist Tomtom Tattoos specializes in small vignettes that tell a story. From climbing a ladder to the moon to enjoying the stars, an application of rich black ink puts his subjects front and center. These sort of often-fantastical tales is part of his pen art as well, and his use of small, meticulous line and dot work gives both his drawings and tattoos the feeling of vintage engravings.
But first you need to know about the part you need your pet inked. The choices are so infinite that you will get tired of thinking and deciding the most admirable placement. Back of neck or thighs, lower back or wrist, back of ear or arm, shoulders or fingers, foot or ankle or calves; and the list goes on! Think girls and guys; just think! Where do you think you will love flaunting your animal imprinted? If you are a professional, arms or shoulders or thighs or back or lower back or collarbone is preferred as to avoid breaking the basic laws of etiquette. While being passionate for some art will give you perks by allowing you to get t anywhere you desire; no restrictions!
