get some thoughts on my recent "Leg Sleeve."
Can I start with a question? Pants have legs, not sleeves, so shouldn't a tattoo covering your leg be called a leg
tattoo? I don't know, I'm not hep to all the lingo you kids throw around. I still don't know where to find the on-ramp to the Information Superhighway in my town.
But I know when someone can't draw. I'm sorry man, but I looked at the many pictures of your tattoo, and I'm trying to find something positive to say, but I'm afraid I can't. I can't say that's a good tattoo, or a well done tattoo, or a tattoo that's pleasant to look at. It's poorly conceived, poorly drawn, poorly scratched onto your skin - there's nothing there that looks good.
I understand that people who have the desire to become tattooers have to learn how to tattoo somehow, and they can really only learn by permanently marking other humans. That's unfortunate. But for something covering that much of your body, you really should have gone to a professional.
On the bright side, the sleeve of your pants will usually be covering it.
I was going to mention that in all likelihood you've tattooed more than a few John Martin words
on your leg, along with Bukowski's words, but it probably doesn't matter, since much of the text in your tattoo is unreadable.
