Today a Police Officer came to complete a long forearm piece begun last month. I've been tattooing him since his days as a Marine, and in defiance of police department regulations he has now decided to have a tattooed sleeve. If that means he wears a concealing fabric sleeve to conceal it while in uniform, it is clearly worth it to him. In the highly competitive world he travels in, this will be the occasion for envy amongst his peers. Sweet.

The look of a warrior's gauntlet is created by this knotwork pattern that wraps the entire forearm. A woven cross shape commands the center front, and intricate weaves complete the inside. Ready for battle.
