Three Acre Blooms
After roughly 40 hours of work and a full year of appointments, we have completed this gorgeous color sleeve. Lisa has been fantastic to work with throughout the entire process. Her trust in my vision is what really brought this piece into existence, and I cannot thank her enough for giving me the freedom to create it. This piece is a show stopper, a jaw dropper, and if your mother thought tattoos weren't pretty, she has definitely changed her mind, kind of piece. Please, enjoy some of the finished photos. More to come.
The original proposal and reference will remain on the page so you can see where the idea started and how it looks as a finished tattoo.
The original proposal 2018
This arrangement is by Three Acre Blooms. It will be roughly 3/4 sleeve length and full color. It will have minimal black linework, and a saturated background. It will come out onto the chest, over the shoulder, and shoulder blade a little. I'm looking for a seriously interested person who's ready to commit to the time and money required to finish it.
No cover-ups, and no other tattoos in the area, please.
This was the original proposal image, as it was posted.
As you can see we did change the orientation from the left arm to the right. There is some slight hue differences that occur naturally when translating a photograph into tattoo pigment and the way that pigments interact with the natural color of the skin. In person, Lisa's sleeve has a stunning likeness to the original photoshopped imagery.
Bramble & Wild
This arrangement was designed by Bramble & Wild in the UK in 2022.
This piece is designed to fit as a full color sleeve that drapes delicately down onto the hand, and extends up onto the collarbone. Both edges will be varied with a neutral toned background. It will have minimal black linework and a saturated background. This piece will look lovely on a large range of skin tones, and can be adjusted to fit on the right or left arm. Minor or very small coverups may be considered for this piece. With laser removal, a larger coverup may be considered. Coverups will be considered case by case, and will require review before commitment. Working around pre-existing pieces is not an option for this proposal.
Below you can see the full photo, to imagine what the backside and under arm might look like. The amount of content used will depend on the size of the arm we are covering.
