I met Jared back in April outside of Penn Station on Eighth Avenue. He had an interesting sleeve that he offered to share:
Jared explained that the concept of the sleeve was based on his experience in the music industry. He had been a musician, but gave up the professional calling "about six months ago." He elaborated:
"...It's a sacrificial piece ... the heart right there [at the center of the arm, in the ditch] ... music's in your DNA and it rips your heart open ...
... and the sacrifice you have to go through ... two faces are the two faces you had to deal with in the music business..."The work above was done by two free-lance artists. The top section of the sleeve was done by a guy named Steve, and the bottom section with the two faces was done by another person whose name Jared doesn't recall.
Thanks to Jared for sharing this work with us here on Tattoosday!
