American Traditional Tattoo Sleeve – Do It Again
All Jeff’s traditional tattoo sleeve needs to do now is heal. I spoke before about Jeff’s work ethic when it comes to his tattoos- “get it done.” When you look down your arm and see that your sleeve is finished it is an incredibly proud feeling that overwhelms you. Although usually zapped at the end of a long session, a collector may feel the need to celebrate after achieving this type of progress. What they intended all along has now become reality. It was their decision. And they have no choice but to stick by it.
Another aspect of Jeff’s can-do approach has to do with his willingness to follow the whims of the artist, who is only following the whims of the muses themselves, the inventors of music, poetry, and the tattoo gods… Unimpeded progress makes work quick, the path of least resistance unfurls, faith wins its belief, positivity brings positivity… I am excited to start on his other sleeve in a couple of months. He has no plans for it whatsoever except to let it flow.
