    Gorgeous, if a) they're done in moderation (Not covered head to toe in them!) and b) the designs are rather nice.

    Black and grey angel sleeve with subtle colour, or full colour animal sleeve?

    I really don't like tattoos with colour in them and don't like it when they're too big so no, not really lol.
    I do like guys with tasteful, tribal tattoos though. It just makes them more manly! Yum Yum :P

    I generally dislike them - I've yet to see anyone upon whom a tattoo that size looks anything other than bad.

    Opinion seems pretty mixed.

    Personally I think tattoos like this look awesome

    The artistry in the top 3 is excellent, on canvass and framed I'd put the images on display...but in sleeve format it just too much and none of the art is shown off as well as it could be (especially true for 1 & 3).

    The last one is atrocious...no two ways about it.

    In what way is it atrocious? Do you mean the actual art? If so, then fair enough that's your opinion if you are talking about the tattooing then, I disagree, the artist is one of the best in the country.

    What pathetically skinny looking arms. Manorexics and tattoos don't go together at all.
    Although I'm not keen on the term manorexics I have to agree. You need an average to muscular arm to pull it off.

    The 'art' choices and the composition of the piece.

    1. I don't like the images
    2. The colour of the face is hideous
    3. I have a general dislike of sleeve composition - it invariably looks too busy and cramped for my taste

    However good the artist might be, that work does not do them any artistic credit at all in my opinion - these things are a matter of personal taste though.

    Fair enough, We will have to agree to disagree on this one. I think sleeve tattoos look the best. The first one and the third are my favourites of the ones I posted. Black and grey with some subtle colour like the third looks fantastic IMO.

    I have never heard tattoos being called chav before, Football tattoos maybe.

    I can't see any chavs having biblical or buddha tattoos.

    1 & 3 are the best and the quality of the art is amazing (and I agree that the 3rd is the best...the flower looks real).

    These days tattoos are the symbol of fashion statement, so all the modern teenager love to have tattoo on their body. Guys also look more attractive if they have tattoo on their body.
