Steven Hubbell’s Sleeves Required a Decade of Dedication
“I don’t know what stories I have. Most of them are cover-up work.”
“My right arm is based on a book called Geek Love by Katherine Dunn. I had a friend of mine read the book and just do the drawings. I let him interpret it how he wanted to. Wrist to shoulder. He’s a tattoo artist, he does oil on canvas too. <a href=”http://markheggie.com/tattoo”>Mark Heggie</a>.”
CC: How long did it take to do all this?
“I don’t know, really. Tens and tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours. Tens of years. There was more than a decade where I didn’t get tattooed at all.”
CC: Are you planning more?
“Yeah! Plenty more. My back is still completely empty, I’ve got a chest and stomach piece that needs to be finished. My legs aren’t all the way done yet. I’ve got a lot of space. My butt is not done yet.”
CC: Is that on the list?
