Default Need advice on going up with the sleeve.

Hi,

I'd like to continue my sleeve up to elbow as for now, do you have any ideas what would, in your opinion, look good there?

And yes, I'll ask my artist also, but I'd like to get a wider point of view since his is kind of specific.

I'd stick with the blackwork . Specially if you plan to cover that molecule thingy

Just more of the same dude, looks really cool. I love the look of different 'patches' of geometric work all worked in together. Keep going!

As for specific ideas, how about a dotwork mandala around the elbow?

Thanks!

As for mandala's, I'm kinda afraid of 'flowery' and 'round' feel it gives me, but that's something to consider. But overall some blackwork+dotwork could work out good.

And not so much space on elbow left since this is the back of my arm, heh (sorry for potato quality :C)

How about some kind of optical illusion? It's weird, I've just glanced up at my bookshelf and noticed my M.C. Escher book. If you're not familiar with his work, give him a Google, you may get some inspiration from there.

Ye, I'v looked at the ladder and staircase thingy by him but then I passed since it would seem to look good on flat surfaces like on the back, arm - not so much I guess.

Now I'm thinking about death moth in dotwork, and some blackwork around it to fill the rest up.
