30. Shoulder Tattoo

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 30

As mentioned the introduction, there are floral Design one can opt for when getting a tattoo. Of course this is not the best option, but this is just to give you an idea of how it might look. You can be as creative as you want these Design no problem.

29. Chinese element Full-sleeve

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 29

This particular tattoo has a Chinese element in it. Anyone care to venture a guess? You probably guessed it right. Look at the fan. Other options to consider if you are getting a ‘cultural’ tattoo is Japan.

28.  Escher design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 28

Do you guys watch Naruto? If you look at this particular tattoo who comes to your mind? It reminded me of Itachi Uchiha which is why it is posted here. One of the most basic tattoos but it gives a nice creepy look.

27. Egyptian Touch

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 27

This particular tattoo has an Egyptian touch to it. It will not suit a lot of arms so make sure you really want this one if you want it. Your arms need to be bulging huge for this one to look nice.

26. Pirates Tattoo

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 26

Do you guys like pirates? This is probably a sort of tattoo that pirates wouldn’t mind getting. Or someone who loves sailing and has a bit of dark character as well. look at the boat, that’s where our interpretation comes from.

25. Abstract Shapes

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 25

This is the most basic form of tribal art and to be honest, these abstract shapes look the best if you are considering to get your entire arm tattooed.

24. Outline Tribal Tattoo Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO  24

This is a much simpler version of a tribal tattoo. It’s just outlines and a little shading. They come alive when you fill in the hollows with solids. It gives a much deeper expression then.

23. Koi fish

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 23

This particular tattoo has a dragon on it as you can make out. Dragons are mythical and that’s the charm about them. Also, they hint at danger, which is why it is one of the most common choices for tattoos.

22. Floral Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 22

Talk about floral Design. There’s many different things you can do with floral Design  and they don’t necessarily have to be girly. Please don’t think for even a second that floral Design are something what girls would get although they will alter your image a little

21. Chinese Foo Dog

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 21

As I mentioned earlier, people go for Design that represent some sort of a culture as well. This again represents a culture and probably Japanese, or even Chinese. Chinese would be more accurate given the dragon and a red ball in his mouth.

20. Weird TATTOO Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 20

This tattoo is all kinds of weird and strange. It has a picture of a baby on the chest, some characters and symbols on either arms. I even see a face on the right arm.

19. Amazing FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 19

This is one of the more amazing tattoos that I have seen so far. It has a picture of a woman who is praying. God knows what it represents, but it sure does look amazing.

18. Terrifying Snake

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 18

This particular tattoo starts with the face of a man. Moving up we have a terrifying snake and a tree in the end. Apparently the snake is going for some sort of a fruit. I wonder where these guys get their ideas from.

17. Arm Tattoo

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 17

This particular tattoo probably represents unity and faith and it goes perfectly given the fact that the guy is a soldier. The praying man and the three arms locked in together.

16. Scriptures

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 16

One of the more common things to do when it comes to a tattoo is to get your favorite saying tattooed. Same concept comes alive if you talk of scriptures as well.

15. Floral Tattoos

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 15

This is another example of floral tattoos. I am sure by now you guys understand exactly what I meant when I said that floral Design don’t necessarily make you look girly.

14. FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 14

This tattoo has my liking. It shows a skull which is drawn in with a lot of detail. You travel down the arm and you see more bones that probably represent tails or something. These bones belong to a serpent.

13. Digitally Arm FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 13

As you probably already noticed, these are not real tattoos but at least now you know that you can get a graphic Designer to paint something on your arms digitally before actually getting a tattoo.

12. Boticcelli’s venus

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 12

This particular tattoo shows a a woman wrapped around in flowers. I want to take a shot at who the lady is but I would rather not.

11. Tribal Tattoos FULL-SLEEVE

FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO Design</h3> <p>

Remember when I said that the tribal tattoos come alive when the hollows are filled in with solids. Well, this is exactly what I meant but this one is missing the shadows.

10. Butterflies, cherries and flowers

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 10

With butterflies, cherries and flowers this tattoo is really diverse. Did anyone guess that the sentence or phrase written on the arm is German. Of course the Germans guessed it.

9. FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 9

As most of you probably already guessed, this is more of an oceanic Design. This is pretty colorful though it doesn’t fulfill the purpose of a tattoo. It does leave a clear message that you love the ocean though.

8. Norse God tattooed

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 8

Another interesting tattoo Design is getting a Greek or Norse God tattooed. This particular one has a very obvious face of the human rendition of the Greek God Zeus.

7.  Traditional tattoo style

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 7

We are sure you like cars. What do cars need? That’s right, in order to maintain your cars there are mechanics and what’s better than a mechanic who’s a girl? Nothing! This is another one of those ideas.

6. Faces and Flowers FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 6

Here’s another idea for you if you are going for faces and flowers although of course it is entirely up to you exactly how many and whose faces you want on your arm.

5.  Floral Art FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO Design

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 5

This is a tribal tattoo mixed with floral art and word Design. Another interesting Design concept as long as it is visually acceptable.

4. Oceanic Design FULL-SLEEVE TATTOO

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 4

This is another example of oceanic Design when it comes to tattoos, but this one is much better placed on the arm and it makes a lot more sense when it comes to the aesthetics.

3.  Alice in Wonderland theme

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 3

This particular tattoo has a lot of crazy going on which makes it a little hard to decipher as well. But that also serves as plus point. It stays unique to you only and only you get to decide who knows what it means.

2. Tribal Art Tattoo

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 2

This is a mono-color example of tribal art mixed with flowers and a whole lot of other concepts including a name of someone close to you.

1. Mushroom and Bunny Rabbits Combination Tattoo

FULL SLEEVE TATTOO 1

This is weird combination if you ask me but hats off to the creativity. We present to you a tattoo with mushrooms, bunny rabbits, a flying skull and another skull resting on a web all in the same place. Beat that.

  4. Barry says:

    Is this really design-related? I liked when you posted design articles like SmashingMagazine and WebDesignLedger, I’m not a fan of these tattoo posts.

    • Ali Qayyum says:

      Barry, our readers have a taste of this kind of inspirational posts as well. we need to care each of our fans …. hope you can understand

      • Barry says:

        Well, I think your design blog is better than most of the others out there because you stick to design-related content and related products, but tattoos aren’t really design-related so overall it hurts your image.

        Plus, tattoos are each supposed to have meanings, these are just random selections the descriptions don’t really describe the tattoo.

  5. Amber Khan says:

    This is really a nice collection of tattoos. Loving this Ali keep it up..

  6. Sarah Park says:

    I love seeing tattoos especially the colorful ones. But I don’t think I can have these on my own skin.
