Darwin Sleeve Tattoo Progress

Progress on the Darwin Sleeve Tattoo

If you’ve followed my blog for a while then you know that I’ve been working on a Darwin Sleeve Tattoo. Last Tuesday, I had my second appointment and Ian was really productive. You can click on the image to get a better view of it.

At the top is Charles Darwin, then next is a Homo sapien skull on my tricep, then Homo erectus on the inside of my bicep, then Homo ergaster in the ditch, then Homo habilis on the inside of my forearm and finally Australopithecus africanus on the lowest part of my arm on my inside wrist.

Even though I have two more sessions scheduled, Ian said I’d probably only need one more to finish up. We’re going to add a pre-modern human spear or arrow tip and some touch up and filling in around my elbow area and then we’re done.

I’m really happy with it and I think it looks great. I’m a bit apprehensive about what the in-laws will think but I have to live my life for me and not what other people think of me. Carpe diem.

  1. It looks great! I love sleeve tattoos, but I especially love that this one has so much meaning for you and within itself. Can’t wait to see it in person.
