This is a perfect example of what can be done with a sleeve tattoo. The women in the picture decided on a design that was not only rich in symbolism but is also quite beautiful. And she chose to do it in the traditional black and white style and not colored like many popular sleeve tattoos today. The detail of this design is also very impressive. This sleeve tattoo starts with a large black steed at the base of the wrist and totally encircles it. Then if you move up the sleeve tattoo to the mid forearm you can see a beautiful rose design that’s slightly larger then the other elements of the tattoo. Finally, at the top of the arm, the part that is usually referred to by most people as the shoulder, we see an ancient battle scene. It’s equipped complete with knights, barbarians and mounted soldiers engaged in a fierce battle. And if you look even closer at this sleeve tattoo you can see that above the battlefield the heavens have opened up and several angels are looking down on the scene with dismay. This is undoubtedly a piece where a lot of thought, planning and imagination was invested.
Sleeve tattoos like this one will always get noticed because not that many people have tats that cover their entire arm. While this one appears to be very well done I can’t say much more about it because I really can’t tell what I am looking at in this picture. Some group of intertwined snakes or serpents of some type maybe? I don’t know but I like it just the same.
