Sleeve Tattoo IdeasBy: TatFan.
A sleeve tattoo is most often a storyboard of interesting significance. Several designs, several meanings and artistic elements combine to tell a story. The phrase "wear your heart on your sleeve" means to display your emotions and make your feelings known and that's exactly what a sleeve tattoo accomplishes.
Sleeve tattoos work as pure body art with no deeper meaning as well though often the tattoo has hidden meaning. Roses for example, there may be a rose for each love lived or child born to the owner. The story a sleeve tattoo tells may not be obvious to others.
Does a sleeve tattoo give a bad impression?
While some people are always going to have the wrong impression, no, a sleeve tattoo doesn't give a bad impression. Because sleeve tattoos are highly visible they actually help break the conversational ice with strangers. Loved ones on the other hand, they're going to love you regardless, even if they cringe at first.
What is a sleeve tattoo?
A sleeve tattoo is a collection of individual designs covering the entire arm or leg(usually the arm). Typically, getting your arm covered in individual smaller tats turns the arm into a storyboard authored by the wearer, often telling of life experiences.

How do I choose what to add to my sleeve tattoo?
Traditionally, the sleeve tattoo is highly personal and happens in two ways, planned and unplanned. The planned sleeve tattoo is typically thought out before any tattooing is done while the unplanned sleeve happens when a wearer adds enough designs to the arm or leg over time to complete the sleeve.
As for what to choose, talk to your tattoo artist about placement of individual tats because they will know which shapes and figures look best on different parts of the sleeve. What to choose next depends on what you already have.
