There’s no doubt about it, tattoo sleeves are being more widely accepted among society.
As a professional, covering them up is easy, and chances are you’ll be wearing a dress shirt at work anyways.
But speaking of work, sleeves can cost a pretty penny; so get ready to save on up.
A good tattoo artist will charge $1,500 – $7,000 for one. While an artist with a wait list, that can often go beyond two plus years, can cost $14,000 and upwards. Just keep in mind when it comes to tattoos, price shouldn’t be a focus point.
Figuring out what you want done should be your main concern. Do you want a half arm sleeve or full arm sleeve? Tribal, skull, rose, dragon, etc? The designs and ideas you can run with are endless. And truth be told, even angel, flower and religious tattoos on men can look masculine and downright manly.
In this guide of the top 100 best sleeve tattoos for men, I’m going to show you all sorts of cool themes that are sure to impress. The talent and creativity is remarkable, but so is the time and amount of dedication. Most of these designs have required twenty plus hours minimum to finish.
And if you’re wondering how long the process takes or the best what to plan things out.. Consider doing 3 hour sittings at a time, going back every 2 and a half weeks. It will extend the timeline a bit longer but remember, this is permanent, don’t rush the process.
The pain varies among gentlemen, with typically the inner bicep, wrist and elbow being the worst spots. But in all honesty, if you want a sleeve bad enough, you’ll figure out how to put up with it.
