For about the past 2 years, I have really wanted a 1/4 sleeve tattoo.
Initially, I didn’t have the money, but I had determined for myself that the gunz were big enough to support such an attention grabber.
Now, I do have the money, but thanks to the success of my fatloss (and some muscle atrophy), I’m only rockin 13.75″ cannons. (They look real nice though.)
So, is that too small to rock a 1/4 sleeve? And if so, how big do I need to grow these monsters to be able to proudly show off my ink?
Pictures as promised. (Don’t bother asking what they mean; I’ll never tell.)
Don’t Miss Your Chance
I was stuck in Corporate America for 9 years. I was miserable.
Then I took control.
You can too, and it starts right here.
1: Plan on getting fat?
2: Plan on increasing total girth 2 inches?
Then probably won’t matter. If your low in body fat and arms are “toned” then you will be ok. Any more stretch and depending on type of tattoo will determine how it looks. Tribal stuff holds well just looks faded if stretched to far.
Randy, good points. I don’t plan on accomplishing the 2 items you listed. I believe I’d probably top out around 15″, based on performance goals.
The possible setback could be the detail I want in it. The dude I go to is pretty good, so I’m sure it won’t be an issue. Thanks!
It’s all about proportion. If you were fat, it would look stupid. But, you’re not, and it will look bad ass. Fuck it, even if you are fat, do it. Fuck everyone else. Who cares?
Hey mate, just curious, how big have your arms been previously? How much did you lose over your specific “all over downsizing” period?
