A blacked out sleeve tattoo is done by an artist to either cover up an unwanted previous design, or throw in a bold statement to this prominent area of a person’s body. The entire arm is tattooed in black, or white can be added to make a delicate design as a part of the tattoo’s look. If it’s not covered up, a negative space can be left to create a rather unique design. Blackout sleeves won’t happen overnight. Plenty of sittings are involved in this painstakingly slow process, as well as the obvious pain that comes before and during healing. Getting a blacked out sleeve tattoo isn’t a quick fix, but rather, a tattoo decision that requires 100% of the artist and the client’s commitment.

There are tattoos you can do for fun but there are also geometry tattoos that are considered sacred and they are also gaining in popularity. These geometry tattoos are completely symmetrical and use many geometrical shapes like squares, triangles and circles. They mingle them together to create incredible designs. Some such tattoos are called Flower of Life designs or Gordian Knots.
Really happy! Viet was great and runs a beautiful studio. He took time to do an initial consultation with me and made sure I was happy with the design over email, and then made sure everything was perfect from the design to the placement before we started. He is known for his black and white work, but I was really pleased that we decided to go with some color and the work was beautiful. He did a really great coverup of my existing tattoo - I could not be more pleased with the result.
The gold standard laser used in tattoo removal is called the Q-switched (quality-switched) laser. Using short, high-powered pulses, the Q-switched laser breaks up the pigment in the tattoo into tiny particles, which are then naturally flushed out by your body’s immune system. A local anesthesia will be applied to the skin pre-treatment to make the tattoo removal process as painless as possible. The procedure lasts around ten minutes. When it’s over, you can return to your regularly scheduled activities—there is minimal downtime depending on how many passes are performed.
The tattoo was a 3 day process. I was their on the first day. The place is vary clean, Viet is vary clean. He has a stack of movies and games to enjoy with. On the first visit we were their for about 5hrs? And Viet was like more like friend to us not just a person there to do the job. He is hilarious! He makes you feel like your at home hanging with your buddies!
“About 10 years ago I put a tattoo on my lower back (also known as a tramp stamp) and I have regretted it almost every day since (the only days I didn’t regret it were when I forgot it was there). Each year as bikini season rolls around I dread the thought of people seeing it. Anyway, I did consults at a few other laser tattoo removal places and this is the place to go! Great staff and prices and it is honestly so easy. I was worried about doing this for years, but the procedure is no big deal. Just a minute of little flicks on the skin and you’re done, way better than the agony of getting my tattoo in the first place.”
First, before I decided to get one I researched pretty much all legitimate tattoo shops in the DFW area, and even some in Houston. Viet was the ONLY place that had all 5 star reviews (not just on Yelp, but other sites, too). That gave me some comfort, but continued to search just in case. Then I got on to his facebook page and saw his work (which he has more pictures of than on the Blink studio website) and WOW. It was beautiful and it appeared he could do pretty much everything!
The design that are created from geometric patterns are usually predictable. The pattern that is designed can be calculated and the eventual pattern studied. Although the routine of the design can seem comfortable. But the tattoo design is also logical and suited to an equation. They are symmetrical designs that are formed through geometric patterns. These patterns can be the key to contentment and happiness.
One of the best lasers we offer for tattoo removal is the new PicoSure laser from Cynosure. This breakthrough advancement in laser technology erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results than ever before. Even previously treated tattoos that failed to clear from a different laser can be removed. PicoSure targets unwanted ink more effectively than some other lasers. The PicoSure laser successfully removes notoriously hard to remove ink colors, such as blue and green, as well as tattoos that have been previously treated with other lasers. Some of the benefits of the PicoSure laser include fewer treatments, improved recovery time, and quicker results, all thanks to PicoSure’s cutting edge picosecond technology. Speak to your Schweiger Dermatology Group provider to see if the PicoSure laser is right for you.
Laser tattoo removal is uncomfortable - many patients say it is worse than getting the tattoo. The pain is often described to be similar to that of hot oil on the skin, or a "snap" from an elastic band. Depending on the patient's pain threshold, and while some patients may forgo anesthesia altogether, most patients will require some form of local anesthesia. Pre-treatment might include the application of an anesthetic cream under occlusion for 45 to 90 minutes or cooling by ice or cold air prior to the laser treatment session. A better method is complete anesthesia which can be administered locally by injections of 1% to 2% lidocaine with epinephrine.
There are many reasons why Sacred Geometry tattoos are growing in importance in tattooing. Modern needles can achieve incredibly elaborate designs which allow people to extend interpretations of these shapes. The rise in the artistic status of graphic design is also a notable point, as they exist in a similar aesthetic field. But perhaps the key underlying motive driving all of this is a striving towards spirituality in an increasingly digitised, socially-atomised world. As traditional aspects of life and work become seemingly ever more fleeting, it’s not difficult to see how a permanent connection to the laws that govern nature becomes mightily appealing indeed.
The term "sleeve" is a reference to the tattoo's size similarity in coverage to a long shirt sleeve on an article of clothing. In this manner, the term is also used as a verb; for example, "getting sleeved" means to have one's entire arm tattooed. The term is also sometimes used in reference to a large leg tattoo that covers a person's leg in a similar manner.
When you look at a geometric tattoo you will usually find some form of pattern to the whole design. Some theme that is consistent throughout the tattoo. A geometric tattoo usually has one design, usually a shape, that is repeated throughout the tattoo to create a specific design. It’s a continuous pattern that is precise and detailed. Geometric shapes are usually shapes that have any number of sides and can be described by mathematics. The shapes often fit easily into a geometric pattern creating a wonderful design. They are mathematical shapes that create repetitious designs and a sense of balance and consistency throughout the tattoo.
More people than you think might expect to spend their daily lives deconstructing the visual world according to spatial relationships and simplified shapes. Architects, engineers, and graphic designers; game designers, photographers, and event coordinators; archaeologists, mathematicians, and scientists — all of these professions and more utilize basic geometry (and often, the golden ratio, despite its aesthetic purity coming under speculation) daily to categorize, design, and contribute to the world around them. Truth is, you visualize the world this way, whether or not you're conscious of it. So, if you're drawn to the way tattoo artists pay homage to nature and mathematics, there's good reason for it. And don't worry, you're not alone.
Sleeves are not easily covered unless you have a long sleeved shirt on. Some people choose to stop their sleeve before their watch so that people in the workforce can’t see it, even when they shake someone’s hand. Other people choose to extend the work past their wrists and onto their hands. It’s a personal preference and different for every individual.
Mathematics is also crucially an international language. In a way, it’s the closest thing we have to a worldwide means of communicating and sharing facts about the universe, and hence represents a vital meeting of different cultures. Sacred Geometry aims to visually represent these means of distilling the complexity of the universe to show the astounding unity and interconnectedness of our all species on this planet.
55. If you are looking for a sleeve tattoo then why not consider the geometry shape version of it. Throughout different areas of the arms there is a separate yet completely harmonious design that complements the one before it. There is so much detail to this tattoo that you can’t help but want to investigate it. There isn’t even any need for color in this tattoo though you could certainly make it pop with some vibrant colors.

A poll conducted in January 2012 by Harris Interactive reported that 1 in 7 (14%) of the 21% of American adults who have a tattoo regret getting one. The poll didn't report the reasons for these regrets, but a poll that was done 4 years prior reported that the most common reasons were "too young when I got the tattoo" (20%), "it's permanent" and "I'm marked for life" (19%), and "I just don't like it" (18%). An earlier poll showed that 19% of Britons with tattoos suffered regret, as did 11% of Italians with tattoos.
A simple, new technique (published in March 2014) which helps to reduce the pain sensation felt by patients has been described by MJ Murphy He used a standard microscope glass slide pressed against the tattooed skin and fired the laser through the glass. Results on 31 volunteers showed a significant reduction of up to 50% in pain alongside a reduction in blistering and punctate bleeding. This technique represents the simplest and most effective method to reduce the pain sensation using a non-invasive procedure.
Card symbols have long been popular symbols to get inked. The ace of spades is usually the most popular one to get but not far behind are the Queens. The queen of clubs symbolises a strong willed and positive person. Tattoos in between the fingers usually need to get redone every few years as they do fade due to the amount of rubbing that occurs there.
