Colorful Batman Sleeve Tattoo Took 40 Hours to Complete


This incredible sleeve tattoo is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to have old Batman comics with them wherever they go! Created by British artist Ian Hopkins, the full-color design features a range of panels from the classic series.

The Dark Knight, Catwoman, and the Joker are just a few of the featured characters, set alongside speech bubbles and punctuated by words from the fight scenes–KA-POW! BAM! All that’s missing are the sound effects. The art of tattooing is a painstakingly detailed process and the full piece took Hopkins roughly 40 hours to complete. The colorfully detailed design won the Best Large Colour award at the Titanic Ink Tattoo Convention in 2012.
