    I'm currently in the process of getting my dagger/rose tattoo on my leg covered up with a super colorful coral reef sleeve. The original tattoo is around 9-10 years old and I never really liked the job the guy did with the color (who has ever seen a sword with a yellow, not gold but yellow, handle and a matte-navy blade?) so I decided to go a different route. I'm a huge marine biology nerd and I love colorful tattoos, so this seemed appropriate.

    I was told by a bunch of artists that it couldn't be done, but the guy I'm going to is incredible. He was actually ranked the number 1 tattoo artist in Chicago by Chicago Reader this past year. Just got done with my second session a couple of hours ago, and here's some before/after from the original design to the first coverup session to today's session.

    Eventually it will be a full leg sleeve probably most of the way up my thigh, but for now we're going to stick with 5 sessions due to finances being the limiting factor.

    I'm ready for more ink. I only have one and its from a black and white comic so I left it without color. I think I'm going to add to it with some more b&w comic pieces.

    Added a couple more pieces to my in-progress coral reef sleeve tonight. Can't wait to keep adding more to it.

    That's going to look really good when it's all finished.

    New pieces added yesterday. Added a giant blue maxima clam on my lower calf, and the outline for a zoanthid colony and an acropora coral on my lower shin.

    For reference, the actual blue maxima clam this was based on:

    Then the outlines:

    And their basis/what they are going to look like when finished...

    Acropora coral:

    Zoanthid coral:

    The sleeve is coming together. I couldn't possibly be more excited with how it's turning out. I was so ready to have that old one covered up, and he has done an amazing job with both the coverup and with the "new" material that is not a part of the covered up area.

    Got some more work done last week.

    Added some color to the zoanthid and acropora corals, a shrimp, and a purple tang (my favorite reef fish).

    One or two more sessions and I should be completely covered from knee to ankle, since it's mostly going to be filling in the background now.

    Impressive. That must cost you a fortune. You got a hookup or something?

    I just started a massive koi tattoo on my thigh. It's covering up an really dumb, bad tattoo that I got over ten years ago. I made the trip to NYC to see Damien Rodriguez for it.
