    Sleeve-ish

    Advertisements
    So DH and I got to talking a couple weeks ago and he mentioned how he thought it would be really hot if I got sleeves. We threw around a few designs and different things and it got me a little excited. I want a more elegant ornant henna esque look in the lining and then also some cherry blossoms to give sort of an idea.

    Sleeves or partial sleeves is something I have been thinking about for awhile but I wonder if I can pull it off.

    For those of you with a lot of body art how did you decide? For those of you who know how I look ( I can post a pic if people want) do you think I could pull it off?

    This is kinda the essence I am leaning towards

    From the pictures I've seen of you, I can't imagine it. You have a very sweet gentle look about you, and I can't meld that and sleeves together in my mind.


    ETA: Okay, that picture is totally not what I imagined. That I definitely think you could pull off.

    I think that's a really cute idea (:

    I haven't seen any pictures of you, but I don't necessarily think that you need a certain "look" to be able to "pull off" any kind of tattoo, even a sleeve.

    If you want a sleeve, then you're a sleeve kind of person and that, in and of itself, makes it easy for you to "pull off" a sleeve. If, as a PP said, you are very sweet and gentle looking, now you'll just be sweet and gentle with an edge

    Thanks!!

    I figured the picture might help because it isn't a typical sleeve. I really like the idea but am nervous too. I mean I already have 4 tattoos so it isn't that so I don't know why I am so happy/nervous about it. I am

    That is true I guess I didn't think of that. Good point.

    btw this is what I look like normally (when not in a hideous bridesmaid dress )

    Go for it! A sleeve along those lines is classy and very feminine. You could totally pull that off!
