    I finally got my sleeve completely after ~4 years. Conflicting schedules, unforseen circumstances, and distance kept this from being the most expedient of processes. The final appointment was the 11th of this month and I finally got around to having a friend take some photos.

    The artist is Bugs. He's at the Tattoo Lounge in LA and his website is www.bugsart.co.uk.

    I'll post some pictures I've taken over the years to give everyone an idea how far this has come from sitting to sitting. It's truly amazing.

    Dammit! I'm looking through all of my sent messages in all of my email addy's and I can't find any of the old pics! I'm asking all of my friends if they have any of the pics saved somewhere. Sorry about that guys. I'll try to come up with something.

    It basically went from an indecipherable mess of lines to beautiful black work and then finally two sessions of color.

    I haven't seen a style sleeve quite like this in awhile. Although it's not my sort of thing, it turned out great. The colours and the way it's put together is done really well.

    i'll got out on a limb and say that bugs is pretty much one of a kind. there are alot of people who try to emulate his style, but he definitely is the originator. i think what i like best is the fact that he knows how to make the tattoo conform your body and flow in a very fluid manner. there are just alot of subtleties that make him amazing.

    Maybe 25ish if not close to 30. Something along those lines.
