o. I just recently heard about text sleeves, and they sound like the most glorious things on the planet.
Does anyone have one? Know someone who does? Have photos of them?
Basically what I'm getting at is a giant worship-post dedicated to their existence.
Holy hell, so much pretty.
I want something like yours, with text from all the books that mattered to me as a kid, mixed with illustrations from said books!
I've got the very beginnings of a leg sleeve, but sadly no good pics.
My arms are taken so I would love to see a leg text sleeve! Please post pictures? :)
It's a quote from Les Misérables. Really quickly with my phone:
He missed a period, but considering the amount of text it's not too big of a fix to get done someday.
That's fantastic! The font and placement gah! There's nothing I dislike about this. :) Are you planning on adding more?
Eventually I want that entire lower leg covered in text that I love/helps me, but it's not all planned out yet. I have a Star Trek TOS quote and one or two other (more literary) things brewing in the back of my head.
My other leg is going to be pictures and it's more planned out but not started, so I'm not sure when anything's going to happen. I know I want to get an Edward Gorey lady and maybe one of Ronald Searle's St. Trinian's girls.
It all sounds awesome! :]
I'm planning a lower leg sleeve dedicated to Lolita. I have "Lo" on my ankle, and I want to get various quotes spiralling up my leg from that to my knee. Unfortunately, this design is fairly low on my tattoo list, so it'll be awhile.
