    Half sleeves as in tattoos.. not clothing lol.

    I've got mine started with the front part of my bicep done and finishing the inside of the bicep in 2 days. What is your opinion of them because the comments that I've gotten from ladies are they're extremely hot cause you can hide them with sleeves or show off when you want.

    Although I know tattoo haters will disagree :rolleyes:

    :lmao: My first thought was, great for summer not so much for winter as I tend to be cold natured. :tongue: Then I read your post. :smile:

    As long as it's well done and has some meaning to the person. I tend to like tribute tatts and I much prefer the color ones to the all black or other monochromatic artworks.

    As with any tattoo it depends on the tattoo. A half sleeve of a good piece done by a great tattoo artist is going to be awesome. And yeah, it'll get you laid.

    Lol, I like the responses. Mines an aquatic theme, with the front part being a scene from the book of Odysseus. I let the artist have free reign on the inside as long as it had 2 seahorses and a turtle. His tattoos really pop with color and look amazing. I love the bright colors.

    They're both very unique and no other will have my exact tattoo :p

    Have you had your inside bicep done? If so, how'd it feel? Mine extends a little bit around and it was tender, but it also extends to my shoulder which hurt far worse.

    I like them, but only if the work is good. I prefer them to a fully covered arm because it isn't obvious. Guys will show you or you might catch of glimpse of it.

    I'll be the dissenting opinion here and say that I don't care for half sleeves. I like tattoos that draw your attention to and enhance an aspect of the person's body, not tattoos that cover up part of a person's body almost as if they were clothing. In general, I prefer simple, self-contained designs over spawling, "busy" designs. (That's true of my aesthetic sensibilities in general, not just my taste in tattoos.) If I see a tattoo on a guy's arm, I want to know that I'm looking at a man's living flesh; I don't want to see such a confusing blur of colors and shapes that I don't even realize that I'm looking at a guy's arm.

    I don't have any tatoos, and I don't plan on getting one. Several of my friends has some very nice tattoos that look good on them, but it is not my thing.

    love tattoos in general, but half sleeves are totally hot to me.

    getting a tat is like having surgery, meaning cost shouldn't be a consideration. go to the best artist. that said I'd get a huge tat if i were 20 years younger. all across my shoulders and down one side
