I just recently got my half-sleeve completely finished. These are pictures the artist, Dave Bruehl, took right after it was done.
My sleeve consists of characters from the book The Odyssey. I decided on this tattoo because of the great symbolism that is used in the book,. Odysseus is eating a lotus, which is representing me forgetting my past. In the book, if anyone ate a lotus they forgot their home and could not return. Odysseus is also covering his ear with his other hand. This represents me not being reminded my past. The sirens (at the top) would remind people of their past by playing music, and this would cause them to crash their ships.
