FULL SLEEVE & CHEST PIECE - MILITARY, SWAT, PATRIOTIC, FAMILY, FEMALE SKULL
I'm looking for a full sleeve that goes onto my chest. It doesn't have to cover the full chest, but at least 1/2 -3/4
The new tattoo has a few themes.
#1. Honoring my military service (Army Infantry / Drill Sergeant) & my Law Enforcement service (SWAT), including other patriotic images to tie them in. Open to suggestions and input. I was thinking of an American flag (off color and grunge looking - see images).
I have a bunch of images at this dropbox link:
I don't need all of them, open to what works best. Descriptions of images below:
#1. 20x30.jpg - Drawn by my friend and artist Dick Kramer. Drawn exclusively for me and depicts two SWAT operators.
#2. 14470837860331793167214.jpg & You can google "swat logo tattoo" and look at ima…rs have done.jpg - Universal logo for SWAT
#3. vintage 1795 Springfield musket infantry insignia.png - US Army Infantry MOS Insignia. I would like to use images of real 1795 Springfield Muskets instead of this cartoon style version.
#4. conference operator.jpg - Tactical Officer - This is an iconic image I use for my tactical conferences - see http://www.nytacticalexpo.com
#5, NYTOA 2017 FACEBOOK.jpg - Shows above tactical operator as being used for my conference header. I also like the grunge flag in the background. Might be good to tying this stuff together, but open to your thoughts.
#6. drill sgt logo.jpg - US Army Drill Sgt Insignia. - I was an Army drill Sgt.
#7. Jiu Jitsu.jpg - Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu logo - I practice this form of BJJ. Logo to be used without text on bottom. Open to not using it if it doesn't fit into the design.
THEME 2 - HONORING MY CHILDREN (Gavin & Dylan)
#1. I'm looking to do something for my kids. I was thinking a clock face that fits in with design with the times they were born. I also would like the small boxing gloves for my son Gavin who was a 23 week preemie at 1.8oz and almost died. The boxing gloves signify a fighter and we had them hanging in the hospital. See picture: preemie boxing gloves.jpg
I'm also open to your thoughts. Also thought of a Kio Fish tying in the kids stuff. Not sure really. Need ideas here.

Not really a theme, looking for a realistic skull that has a hint of being a female skull, maybe some ratty, stringy hair or something, not sure. I want it to look like a skull and not half skull, half female face. I want the female part to be more subtle than that.
I also want to add either a gag or a metal plate to the mouth - or and open to thoughts. This signifies lack of talking/communicating kills a relationship/friendship.
Let me know if you have any questions.
