It has been said, “the ocean stirs the stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul.” It also chaperones eternal joy to your body when you perfect your arms with an ornate ocean sleeve tattoo.
Only the most talented tattoo artists can capture the undulating currents that will form the base of an ocean tattoo.
The arm becomes a canvas of blue as the needle-wielding craftsman builds layers upon layer of ocean creatures and cultivates.
The ocean’s depths defy our imaginations and give us incalculable opportunities for self-expression. Even a flawless ocean sleeve tattoo is hardly enough to honor the gifts of the deep blue. There are colorful coral that can be recreated in hundreds of distinct shades and silhouettes, each unique and able to dance along the contours of the strong muscles of the upper arm. Swimming fish, diving mammals, and crustaceans will also want their turn to two-step along vigorous veins and angular elbows.
Choosing which sea creatures to include in a full sleeve design may be a protracted process, full of rigorous research to capture perfectly the mind’s impression of the ocean. Conversely, it might also be an opportunity to let a true needle artisan demonstrate his or her amazing ink skills. Endowing a talented tattoo artist with creative freedom may be your opportunity to have a fascinating, one of a kind portrayal of the sea.
