Sean's Stunning Sleeve

Earlier this month, I met Sean outside of a store on Broadway in lower Manhattan.

I generally don't like to post full sleeves on Tattoosday because it is, in my opinion, really hard to do them proper justice.

Once in a while, however, the work is exceptional, and I can't help but try and capture some segments of the sleeve.

I mean, look how great this is:

Sean explained that segments of the sleeve are in memory of a neighbor who was a mother figure for him when growing up. She succumbed to complications from lupus, and the clock and roman numerals link to the date of her death.

We didn't have time to discuss all the elements of this sleeve, but he did credit the work to Tazz (@Tazz_Tatts) who works out of Aztec Ink (@aztecinkbrooklyn) in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. We've featured work by Tazz at least once before, like this piece which appeared in 2011.

Thanks to Sean for sharing his cool sleeve with us here on Tattoosday!
