Default American Traditional/ semi realistic Tattoos, into sleeve?

As of now, I have quite a lot of American Traditional style tattoos, some are a little more realistic and all are black and grey.

I'm thinking of possibly adding some sort of background and turning my arm into a proper sleeve.

As I said, I have quite a few tattoos but quite a bit of space because most of them are fairly small.

I really like this style, and I'm not quite sure what it is called...?

Just shading /smoke/ clouds / but what are those sort of feather / leaves looking things called?

What is this sort of aesthetic ? It is clearly his own style, but it's a bit of American Traditional mixed with I don't know the word. Sort of medieval ?

How do you guys feel about getting shading in between tattoos when they are american traditional to turn your arm into a full sleeve?

It’s hard to see what he’s got but there’s a rose and a lady face. They’re black and grey neo traditional tattoos. Where abouts do you live and can you share a picture of what you’ve already got on your arm?

I don't know, I just really like the mix of styles and the black work.

This is my arm currently, I have a shark above my elbow on the back, and the top is the leaves coming off a rose...





I'm a big fan of his style of tattoos, where it is semi-traditional but black work and not super cartoonish.

I'm thinking of maybe doing a big feather on the back on my forearm below my elbow.

my buddy thinks I should do a Hannya mask, but I think a feather would be a good way to add something more akin to the sleeve I posted originally, and then continuing to add more.

Oh yeah I remember! Would go with the previous advice here and seek out some of the artists at those shops to fill your gaps in the style you’re after. This is another shop worth checking out:
