Black band sleeve by Meatshop-Tattoo Black band sleeve by Meatshop-Tattoo
Done over 2 days in NYC. This is actually a cover-up, but the black bands function really well, so i made them large and agressive in the design, and based the design on a viking armband.
I will continue this later next year i think.

Any chance we could put up some pics of my finished tattoo? I'm not here that much but I would love to put up the finished product if possible.

Awesome work with this. Normally not a fan of the black bands, but it looks like there is enough negative space in there to make it work.

awesome; The bands add an extra element that isn't found in the common sleeve.  : )

This is a good cover-up. Tribal is SO frowned upon in the tattoo industry these days, but this is a clean design. Do your other sleeve with actual tattoo art. I do not mean that as an insult.

the black bands have a powerful impact which makes sense since the designs based off viking inspiration well done ^_^

Very cool and clean. And I truly like the approach to incorporate the cover up in the black band scales, sharks tooth and etc. Very nice.

Excellent work. You did a great job with the black bands. You see a lot of people running around with thick bands that aren't filled in right and its terrible. But this...this right here is perfection! I love all the art you post. Thanks for sharing. :)

One of the better coverups i've seen, for sure. The black bands really "pop" in the design

i think the blank band looks great its not something you see frequently making it more aggressive in design is a good call
as always great work from you guys more power

Explain why? When giving critique, do it constructively :)

Sure, but Its not gonna be easy, understanding of this thing depends on you. 

The whole tattoo has a certain detail level. Basically its the average "detailing" you make on a piece of skin. So when a person looks at the whole tattoo looks like something one. And when you look at these black bands it feels like some other artist put a hand on it to cover something up. It makes you feel like two different artists worked on it. Is it bad? I don't know, brobably not. It just doesn't look full-fledged because of the difference. Also why making black bands like a tattoo when you can just take a rag and do the same. 

Well, its just a single of your works. Keep it up!

I see your point but you are still looking at a half-finished tattoo, not healed, and it is a cover-up. Just wait, you will see :)

No, there are loads of unfinished projects, im just stubborn and want the world to see :).
This one needs patterns in all the white bands.
