    Sleeves, or half sleeves.
    Will they look bad if you had smallish arms and put mass on after?

    There's always a possibility that they may stretch if your skin has accommodate more fat...

    Something like that would cost you at least a few hundred, but it's impossible to give a proper price estimate without knowing what you want, how much of your arm would be covered, how detailed the design would be, etc. You pay for both skin coverage and time - so if your sleeve is relatively sparse and uncomplicated, it will cost less than a full, complex sleeve with lots of intricate detail.

    Sleeves. Any change in size can distort a tattoo.

    In that photo, it looks good. But the same guy with different clothes/lighting could make the same tattoo look majorly chavvy and horrible.

    Make sure you choose a design you wont get bored of or hate a few years down the line. Also make sure you go to a reputable tattooist!

    As someone else said, it is likely to cost in the hundreds. Tattoos are priced based on how long it takes to complete the design and then carry out the tattoo-ing so any price they tell you beforehand is just an estimate. So you have some reference to go by, I was going to get a little black (just the outline) of a heart on my wrist, and it would have cost about £25-£30, so a full/half sleeve will cost a bomb!

    Getting tattoos based upon the opinions of others is so awful and generally seems to lead to horrible, generic tattoos that I'd hope any sane person would come to regret within a few years.
