Below are pictures of my existing eagle tattoo on my outer arm and the available space on my inner arm. I’ve been thinking of adding an owl head to the inner arm area but I’m just not sure how much I like that placement and how it would look. I’ve also included a pic of someone else’s owl on their inner arm to give an idea how it might look although the image would be a little different. Just looking for thoughts and opinions on the inner arm placement and if an owl head might look out of place there or if another design or location would fit better. Thanks much.

My arm:

I’d get something more like this (not sure color or b/g yet):

I love in inner arm tats. They look so cool kinda peeking out when your arm is down and pop when the arm is stretched out.
I would put the owl straight up and down (when your arm is by your side).

i kinda like the placement in the pic because you can get more detail in the owl head. if you do it north/south you would have to scale down the image a little bit. btw, nice eagle. who did it?

Not only that, but in it’s current postion, it’ll be staring back at anyone who happens to be looking at your outstretched arm – generally the position your arm will be in for the tattoo to be visible.

Are you going for the eventual bird sleeve or half-sleeve, and if so – how would you tie them together?

Thanks for the replies. If I do get it there that’s probably how I’d position it and to maximize the detail like yodaddynukka mentioned. And I really never planned on turning it into a half-sleeve so that’s also why I want to make sure having the two individual pieces would still work because I don’t know how I’d tie it together. I also didn’t think I’d add to the arm after the eagle but I just really like birds of prey so who knows. Oleg Turyansky expressed interest in doing the owl so I’d give him freedom but I just haven’t been sure of the placement and color or not. So you guys don’t think even if it was left at two seperate pieces it wouldn’t look out of place and still work?

And @ yodaddynukka, the eagle was done at Hartford County Tattoo in CT by a local artist named Angel.

i think it would be ok if you take it to the right artist. the eagle is done really well so as long as the owl is done well (which im sure it would be with oleg) then it should be fine. i am in the same situation as you are since i have the bio gear half sleeve on my arm along with a nio warrior on my forearm, and also planning to get a samurai mask on my outer forearm i am a little worried about the styles not meshing. but im pretty sure it will work ok…
