  • Ideas for dedication sleeve

    My grandfather has been one of the biggest influences in my life, and I wanted to get a half-sleeve to honor him. With that being said, I don't really want a portrait of him. Has anyone else done something similar?

    Hmm... what about gathering together your most precious moments with him? Just questions to ask yourself (you don't need to answer them here) - What did those moments involve? What did you notice the most at those times? What sort of things mean the most to your grandfather? Using symbolism can be a great idea as far as artwork goes for a dedication sleeve. You can even have a sort of time frame sleeve - starting at the top your earliest moments going down to the most recent or something like that.

      I got some tattoos similar to the ones on my dads hands in memory of him.

        That is great advice, thank you! I really like the idea of a timeline--what a great idea!

          That is interesting Hazel. A funny note, my grandfather thinks most tattoos are trashy, so I'm also trying to convince him that's not the case for all of them
