Back in September, I met a couple, Annie and Griffin, walking in lower Manhattan. They were fully-sleeved and, although I don't often feature sleeves because they are hard to truly capture in a two-dimension setting, their work was remarkable.
First up is Annie, whose work was done by Kahlil Rintye (@kahlilrintye) at Ed Hardy's Tattoo City (@tattoo_city) in San Francisco.
Annie told me she has a Japanese aesthetic and that she just told Kahlil what she wanted and he designed it:
That rooster and colorful sleeve are really quite beautiful!
Annie's travelling companion Griffin, on the other hand, had a sleeve in black and gray, inspired by the work of HR Giger (@giger_art).
He referred to the figure above as his guardian angel.
Griffin's work was by Dustin Burt (@dustinburtart) at Sugar City Tattoo (@sugarcitytattoo) in Crockett, California.
Thanks to Annie and Griffin for sharing their sleeves with us here on Tattoosday!
