    Well last night I went out and started my saltwater themed sleeve on my right arm.8)

    Its a work in progress.

    The center piece of the sleeve on my lower arm is an octopus. Couldnt I need to go back to get the octopus colored in red and orange.

    Please share an idea of what I can add to this sleeve I started

    Here are some pics

    Pretty cool, man. Can't wait to see it finished. Sure it stings a little :p. I just got one done on the inside or my wrist. Hurt a little worse than the the bicep or shoulder

    The great thing about a sleeve is all the things you can incorperate into it. pick 4 or 5 items to represent and give them some grading on most important to least and see what your tattoo artist comes up with. A great artist will far exceed your wildest expectations.

    looking forward to seeing more :jester:

    you need to add a lionfish, eel, shark, etc go with a predatory theme also a deep sea angler fish the ones with the light for an antennae and long long teeth.

    Very nice, I agree with the colors for the octopus.
