What's a Tattoo Sleeve?
Tattoo sleeves, also known as sleeve tattoos, are large tattoos that comprise the entire length and circumference of the arm, typically extending from the shoulder to the wrist.
Most tattoo sleeves are actually a series of individual tattoos that blend together to form one cohesive, well-blended piece of artwork. The cohesive element of a tattoo sleeve is really key, as it must look like one, continuous piece of artwork. Otherwise, the result can be less than aesthetically pleasing. This is why it's important to turn to an experienced, talented tattoo artist, like those at Sin City Tattoo Studios, Melbourne.
Tattoo sleeves are increasing in popularity, especially among women. Women tend to favour bright, vibrant colours, whereas men tend to get tattoo sleeves that are a bit less vibrant in terms of colour.
Ideally, one tattoo artist should create the entire tattoo sleeve. This improves cohesiveness among the various elements of the tattoo. When you have multiple tattoo artists working on a sleeve, the result can appear a bit “off,” since artists specialise in different styles of tattooing and artwork. Each artists brings something to the tattoo. And generally speaking, most tattoo artists infuse a bit of their own personal artistic style into the tattoo. So hiring one tattoo artist to perform the entire sleeve is generally the best option. (tattoo designers melbourne)
It's also ideal to design the entire tattoo sleeve at once. This will enable you to come up with a custom tattoo design that is cohesive and flows well as a unit. The talented artists at Sin City Tattoo Studios, Melbourne are available to perform custom tattoo sleeve designs. Design fees start at $50, but it's important to note that original sleeve design tends to be significantly more expensive in terms of design simply due to the sheer size.
Tattoo sleeves are virtually never created in one sitting. It can take 24 hours or longer to create an entire tattoo sleeve. The timeframe for getting a tattoo sleeve depends on the individual's pain tolerance, among other things. Some clients can sit for several hours of tattooing, whereas others prefer 1- or 2-hour long sessions. It all depends on your individual tolerance.
Finances can also impact the rate at which an individual gets a tattoo sleeve. Sin City Tattoo Studios, Melbourne has a base rate of $180 per hour. Larger jobs, such as tattoo sleeves, tend to be priced on an hourly basis.
If you prefer longer tattooing sessions, it's generally best to call Sin City Tattoo Studios, Melbourne to make an appointment so we can ensure that your preferred artist is available for the timeframe in question.
