    Wanting to finish out my arm in sleeve. I already have the designs ( Sailor Jerry style) drawn up and my artist is mashing them up into an overall big picture. Was wondering the length of time it's taken most people to do thier arm sleeves.

    Don't understand why u had to be a condescending smartarse. No one gives a fuck if you have distaste in tattoos, each to their own. He didn't ask you for your opinion on them, so stop acting superior.

    When I finished mine (not shown on my profile), it took about 14 hours in total.

    i have a full sleeve and a 3/4 sleeve on my arms and a sleeve from toes to knee on my R leg and about 3/4 same on my L leg. i pieced them together over years. when i first started, i didnt really think about the entire thing and how i wanted it to fit together so i had weird spaces that i just filled with biker dust and shit. that being said, i recommend piecing it together while being conscious of the next piece you are going to get but not the entire arm. you never know what colors might pop more on your skin or how things from paper to skin translate. i would also let your artist take the wheel for most of it which it sounds like yer doing. ive been getting tattooed for 11 years now on a pretty steady basis which adds up to probably 60 sessions.

    I agree. I personally couldn't commit to a permanent design but I've seen a lot of ink that looks phenomenal. Some not so much but I really don't know why some people think they have the right or superior opinion to insult others doing them no injury. Happens a lot all over the internet so it's not a gay or realjock thing, just small-minded arrogance.

    Can't tell if my opinion is making me a dick, or if Melbourne is being called a dick...

    You. Sorry, mate but sometimes you shouldn't blurt out whatever you think. Your terse "No" bore no relevance to the question and was dick-ish. And not in a good way. He asked for information. You took the opportunity to shit on his interest in ink. Only children blurt. Learn some manners.

    Or did you just mean you didn't know how long it took and were making a joke? If so, sorry, but we all took it as a comment on ink in general. Your profile doesn't suggest you're a "dickish" guy. So sorry!!!!

    I was just saying no as a disapproval for the tattoos, I'm really not a dick at all, I just can't stand tattoos for some reason. My bad. Love you bros.
    EDIT: I'm blunt and straightforward with a lot of things.

    Buddy, being "blunt and straightforward" with people who didn't ask your opinion is being a dick. Rendon didn't ask you what you thought of ink. Grow up.

    There's a difference between being straightforward and going out of your way to exert an opinion that is irrelevant to the OP. If you can't stand something, keep it to yourself or save your opinion for when it's being asked for. When you go out of your way to feed your negativity onto others, that's when you become a dick. Put it this way, if I were to PM you put of the blue saying I don't like your haircut, wouldn't you think I was being rude/ being an asshole? It's common sense man.
