Elements Of The Design

Because quarter sleeve tattoo designs cover a larger area the offer the opportunity for a creative personalized design more that single tattoos. When deciding upon what will make up your design you have more options because of the coverage area. Quarter sleeve tattoo designs can tell one with a continuous theme like flowers, landscapes, or space. But, you can also choose to create an eclectic design that is made up of seemingly random small elements combining to tell a personal story or journey.

Decision On Placement

While traditional quarter sleeve tattoo designs start at the top of the shoulder and extend to mid bicep when choosing your design you can opt for several alternative. The first alternative is to not include the shoulder of your arm making the sleeve like a large band. The second choice on placement is if the quarter sleeve will wrap completely around your arm or simply cover the front. Finally, if your design covers in the shoulder you can take the elements in further to cover all or part of your chest. When designing your tattoos you will want to take all of these factors into consideration, as they can enhance or detract from the overall aesthetics of the tattoo. For example, if you choose a landscape design with a waterfall the tattoo would be enhanced if the waterfall dropped from the top of the shoulder. If you are choosing to wrap the tattoo all the way around your arm then you want to make sure the design is such that key elements will be hidden.

Density Of Coverage

A quarter sleeve tattoo designs can either be completely filled in between the various design elements or the elements can be left open with no background so that your natural skin shows through at certain points. As with any tattoo the more filling in that required and the more colors used increases both the time commitment and overall cost of the tattoo. Do not think you have to make this decision from the beginning, as with any tattoo you can always go back and add backgrounds and shadings at a later time.
