Cretaceous Sleeve Tattoo

Cretaceous Sleeve

In November of 2011, I began trekking to Austin, Texas to bring my Cretaceous-themed sleeve to life at the incredibly talented hands of Nick Baxter. I made three trips to Austin for tattoo sessions. Each trip was about 2 months after the previous. The first and second sessions were two days (sittings) each and the third and final session was one day.

The progression and results are below.

The experience was an adventure to undertake, and extremely rewarding. Nick is a mind-bogglingly amazing artist, not only on skin but on oil and canvas as well.

  1. Nice sleeve. I’m currently in the process of getting a full sleeve myself (from hand to shoulder & chest).
