My work doesn't allow anything past the sleeve, otherwise you have to wear long sleeves. I'm not a big fan of quarter sleeves and no way I'm wearing long sleeves over summer.
Your tattoo guy must be pretty big if he's booked up that far.
If I go full sleeve, which im intending to, then I will probably wear long sleeves at work. It isnt a rule but I like to have them covered at work.
My Tattoo guy is a girl, and she is one of the best tattooists in the area. worth the wait in my eyes. There are a lot of really terrible Tattoo places round here so the good ones tend to get booked well in advance.
