Filling in a tattoo sleeve is one of the most satisfying things you'll ever experience in your life. But you can't possibly complete one sweet piece of sleeve, without getting your elbows done — a big pain in the arse, right?

In addition to being one of the most painful tattoo spots, the elbow is also one of the trickiest as it's a part regularly strained and stretched which may distort it. But in the hands of the right tattoo artist armed with a solid design, you'll be infinite.
