OT tattoo sleeve
Are there people that have a picture of a ford f100 with kind of skyline on the back
I wanne make a sleeve like this one

You have a 56, correct? I know Ross has some nice pictures with some mountain views, but he has an older truck.

I'm not a big fan of tattoo's, but that is some high quality work on that one. The guy that did that one has some serious skill. Do you have a tattoo artist that skilled available? You will need to show us your final product when you get yours done.

Hmmm.... That one looks like the Flatiron Building in NYC. Nicely done.

An artist skilled enough to do that quality work ought to be able to combine the truck with any background of your preference.

JMHO, beautiful work but oh so low camp. What would that tat cost vs what would the same money invested be worth in 50 years. How many job advancements would it keep the wearer from?

Here's an alternative:
Cheap Uv Protection Arm Sleeve - Best Motorcycle Ski Sun Uv Resistant Arm Sleeve Quick Online with $0.84/Pair | DHgate

Actually serve some purpose (sunscreen). Take them off when you aren't posing, and really hard to tell they aren't real. Cheapo too. There are folks who sell custom to order, too.

OT -- check out Turlington's tattoo remover Saturday Night Live skit on Youtube, it's a classic!

OP did say he wanted to make a sleeve right from the outset, so this is exactly what I thought he was planning, just asking about the art. Lets even us pain wimps be bad boys. ;)

Ok, I get it now. Perhaps if I had something similar, plain of course, when I was younger, my left arm would not be covered with scars from surgery.
Wayne, I am bad as I need to be without a tat.:-wink I didn't know any difference that perhaps a full arm tat was called a sleeve.:-roll

ALBUQ F-1 07-26-2014 01:33 PM

"Sleeves" with respect to tattoos are usually full-length arm tattoos. Not the Lycra. I think the OP is looking to get some ink?

albuq your are right I wanne get some inkt

Harrier 07-26-2014 06:45 PM

We haven't helped much with pictures, but we have discovered that Ray is to bad for tats. :)

I would think to get what you want you would need to find the skyline you would like and an image of an F100 you like and have the tattoo artist put them all together. I don't know how the process works, but I would think he would draw his plans out on paper for you to approve before sticking you.

I would assume a sleeve like that would take quite a few sessions to complete. Maybe you need to start a build thread on this process.

I would think, as long as there was a '48-'56 F1/F100 in it, it would be On Topic. Wouldn't it?

What kind of skyline? City or mountains? American or European? Which city/mountains?

filthy6 07-27-2014 12:52 AM

I would suggest a skyline full of BOOBS then send us a pic to see how it turned out.

None - quit livin with the eyes wide shut. Most that have the expendable cash for sleeved work chose to do this to tell their life story, document trials and tribulations, and pay respects. I'm sleeved shoulder to wrist on both arms and it hasn't slowed anything in my career.

Not being disrespectful I couldnt care less one way or the other if you want tatts, but how would you know if it held you back career wise?

You would need a twin in the same job going down the same career path that was unsleeved to know? :-huh
