					Half Sleeve Tattoo Designs
  Half sleeve tattoo designs are often the result of a lot of different tattoo sittings that
have formed the makings of a 鈥渟 leeve 鈥?or covering of half or more of the arm in
artwork! These designs are very unique and represent a love for tattoos (and a lot of
patience). This sleeve tattoo concept pretty much embodies any kind of tattoo that
totally covers one or more arms or sometimes legs. Usually, half sleeve tattoos are
either from the top of the shoulder blade all the way down to the elbow or from the
elbow to the wrist area. This type of design represents a shirt sleeve that is made up of
tattoos rather than fabric.
  People with half sleeve tattoo designs often say that they are addicted to getting
tattoos. The pain and patience associated with getting multiple tattoos at one time or
in different sessions can be perceived as therapeutic for some. As the saying goes,
beauty is pain, and tattoo art beauty is no exception! The commitment of time and
money for the receivers of half sleeves is something to think about. The product can
be very striking as well. A person may accumulate all different tattoos that make up a
half sleeve, or they may simply ask for a tattoo design that covers the entire half of an
arm or both arms. Either way, the design is visually stunning to those looking at it.
Someone getting one of the many types of half sleeve tattoo designs is generally
aiming for something that will be eye-catching to the rest of the world and probably is
not shy about the fact that they have tattoos.
  The popularity of half sleeve tattoo designs has grown in the last couple decades as
more and more people choose this type of skin art. Individuals may want to research
different types of designs that will represent a certain artistic flair or type of
personality before going under the needle. The fact that half an arm will be covered
with tattoos is enough to warrant a thorough investigation of such an undertaking
before the deed is actually done. There are many resources available online to help
with this research and time should be taken to look at these before heading to the local
tattoo shop. Half sleeve tattoo designs are part of a category that represents a certain
dedication to tattooing.
  Men and women both receive half sleeve tattoos. Some themes and motifs are more
popular for one gender than another, but any tattoo design can be unisex. Below are
some of the different popular whole sleeve designs for men and women:
  Men: 鈥?Tribal art tattoos or flames 鈥?Celtic knots 鈥?Traditional cultural tattoos
(i.e. Japanese) Women: 鈥?Floral patterns or plant life 鈥?Hearts, patterns, and
various shapes 鈥?Other nature or animals
  Whatever people choose to get for their half sleeve tattoo designs should be
meaningful to them. The tattoo will be large and visible, so care should be taken to
choose the right design ahead of time & then just go for it.
