Yup, I definitely have some plans for it. Next up is a piece on the front of my shoulder to even it up and balance the top of my arm. Dane is going to work up a design based on this image from a classic Superman comic, which you'll see below. It's of the planet Krypton exploding and the rocket shooting away from it. The spherical shape should work well opposite the shape of the Daily Planet on the back of my shoulder I think, the greens will add another colour to the palate we've already used and it's an image that I think should translate to Dane's style well. I expect he'll adapt it really well.

Then i'm also thinking about having a Wonder Woman piece on the inside of my bicep which would wrap the tattoo all the way around my arm. WW is the third in the DC Comics 'trinity' and for me is a natural progression from Superman and Batman. I think it too could look really great.

Awesome, that sounds like you are going to end up with an amazing sleeve, i definitely think Wonder Woman would be a great addition along with the other 2, make sure you keep coming back with pictures, i really want to see how this looks when it's finished

I had the next piece done today, with the planet krypton exploding, based on the image I posted above added to the front of my shoulder.

Only done this afternoon so it's fresh and these photos are low resolution (front facing camera on the iPad = grimy!) but here's a look.

I'm booked in at the beginning of June to have a Wonder Woman piece added to the inside of my arm. That will be the biggest individual piece so far, stretching from just under my armpit, down to my elbow and wrapping around to complete the coverage.

Love the whole thing so far, it's so nice to see the artist's style in there. I'm a big fan of vintage graphics and this really has the feel of that!

It is not often I get to say this with tattoos but this is very unique! I love the progression of it, and I cannot wait to see WW to add into it!

You should get a villains sleeve on your other arm too, in the same style! Good vs Evil.

I am a big DC villains lover, Marvel might have the HULK but I love the darker side of the DC world. I would love a Harley Quinn piece.

Still got a few weeks until I get the Wonder Woman piece added but I thought i'd post a photo of the arm now the front shoulder piece has healed up. Here's a nice side profile, i'm really liking how it's coming along. Love it really.
