Enchanted Forest Full Sleeve by BeautifulDragon322 Enchanted Forest Full Sleeve by BeautifulDragon322
This is my full sleeve tattoo that is currently a work in progress. It is an enchanted forest with dragons and fairies. I had my last tattoo session and this is how it looks healed. The black and gray shading is now done and the next session will start all of the color! My tattoo artist is an amazing artist and have done amazing work on my sleeve so far. I am so excited to get the color started in a few months!

You can check out more pics of the progression of my sleeve and other tattoos here [link]

Wow..that's really cool. If you don't mind me asking how did you combine them all to one picture?

WoW..I feel horrible for waiting SO long to reply! This comment got lost in my thousands of messages!

Well I took seperate pictures of each rotation of my arm, well my friend took the pictures as I rotated actually. Then I worked for awhile in Photoshop to place them together in the correct order. Then I adjusted all the lighting to have it look somewhat similar! :D It was a very long and tedious process but VERY well worth it! The full sleeve is actually now completed! I just need my friend to take another complete set of my arm in all the rotations so I can put a finished piece together in this same way! :D Thank you so very much!! :D

Ha ha cool, yea, most chicks are fucken gay when it comes to getting tattooed and just conform to what society wants them to be like, good on you for stepping outside of whats the "norm", and it doesnt look like your too much the other way either, ie man hating lesbian biker type lol

LOL! Yeah I totally know what you mean about woman and tats! I think it is getting better though. Thanks and yeah it took me a bit to get over the way people look at me and all that. Now I just love them for the art and what they mean to me! Yeah I do love men AND women but I am not a biker or man hater :p just very open. :D
