Half-sleeve Ink

Tattoos are seen more now than ever before. It is estimated that over 20% of Americans have tattoos. With 36% of those being Americans age 18 to 29 according to the history of tattoos.net. Half-sleeve tattoos are the trend right now. With society becoming more lax and less critical of tattoos and those who have them, the tattoo shops have been filling up with the new generation getting tattoos in record numbers. Tattoos are seen as a beautiful way to express oneself and body.
 
Men's tattoos used to be for hardcore punk rockers and bikers who would never be caught dead in corporate America and PTA meetings for their kid's school. More and more the younger generation is redefining what an appropriate tattoo is and who can have them.
 
Now you see a dad at the beach with his family with a large and intricate tribal half-sleeve tattoo. You can go to the grocery store and see a young man helping elderly grandparents shop with a mountain scene displayed on his lower forearm.  
 
Men's tattoos are especially badass and have a wide range of themes and looks. Many tough designs and scenes can be created all over the body to emphasize ripped muscles and lean fasques.
 
The trend that has been big this year has been half-sleeve tattoos. Arm tattoos are so versatile, giving so much more space for an artist to get creative because the arms of men are generally larger. Half-sleeve and quarter sleeve tattoos on men are a great way to show off all the work put in at the gym.

Men still professional with half sleeves

Another reason arm tattoos have become increasingly popular for men is that it allows for the wearer to be discreet in professional settings if need be. If a man has a job interview or is meeting with more conservative clients, then a long-sleeved shirt can be an easy solution.
 
This can hide even the largest tattoos on your forearm and chest area; allowing men to be professionals without preconceived notions about their quarter arm tattoos. Even though society may be moving towards a more accepting view of professionals with tattoos, there is always a small few that will disagree with this form of self-expression.

Half tattoos allow for a large canvas for intricate and detailed designs. A statement that can be seen by everyone but also easily hidden if needed. It's such a large area that you can consider a full sleeve to sport an entire arm of art or a half sleeve. A half sleeve can be either solely on the upper arm or the lower forearm. Each location offers a different kind of space and view for your tattoo.
 
It's important to have a clear view or theme of what you want your tattoo to be. You and your artist should go through all the different types of tattoo designs so that you are more likely to find something that you love forever. With new advancements in technology tattoos design can be even more futuristic and realistic in design, making portraits come to life or tribal tattoos tricking the eye with illusions.
 
Colors and shading can help to create depth and definition for a well-done tattoo. When thinking about the design, you have to decide how large or small the feature pieces in your design will be. Placement, colors, and size of the tattoo are important to discuss with your artist as well to make sure the rendering is clear before the ink is laid.

There are a plethora of different themes to consider for your new tattoo. Each one allowing you to express who you are. Every part of your tattoo expresses something about who you are, what you believe in and what you hold dearest to your heart. From the placement, upper arm or forearm, to the colors and shading.

 

A good artist is someone you should take your time to find. They should be able to show you examples of other arm tattoos that they have inked. They will be familiar with your design theme and done similar work before. They will be able to express what is uniquely you in one beautiful, strong piece of work on your arm on a half sleeve.

Men's tattoos are so great, and it’s encouraging that society is letting go of strict archaic views on tattoos and those who wear them.


There are so many different design choices and meanings you can convey on a forearm or half sleeve.  So if you're thinking about getting a tattoo, a half sleeve is a great choice. It allows for versatility, discretion and something you will love forever. Think long and hard about your design and seek out the best artist to make your dream half sleeve tattoos a reality.
