So I plan on getting my half sleeve made into a full sleeve on Monday... I feel that as i already have the half there's no harm in getting it continued down my arm?

Do you think this will be detrimental to my career or could I get more work due to it?
Never a dull moment

Difficult one to answer.
I personally dislike tatoos and it would therefore put me off slightly.
But some people really like them and may be more likely to want to work with you.

Some doors will close and some will open.

I dont have anything against them as such (my sister has several), but dont see the novalty/attraction in them personally. They look ok when first done but look a mess as they fade to mucky green/blue. They may look great now, but as tastes change they may look outdated and laughable in a couple of years time.

I think models without tatoos will always get more work from a wider audience, where tatood models are more niche. I dont base this theory on any evidence, only my personal views and opinions.

I really don't know, it has never been on my list of things to shoot. Until yesterday that was, I shot Miss Tonnii, on here, who has a considerable amount of tattoos.
It was my first shoot with someone who one might call a tattooed model and I wasn't sure how to approach it. Whatever anyone else thinks of the images, several at the top of my portfolio, I am pretty pleased with them and it has driven me to now look at more tattooed models, in fact, one has already contacted me after seeing them.

No doubt, it is more of a niche than mainstream glamour etc, but with the trend of young women getting "plastered" in them, I guess more and more photographers will become more accepting of them and they will become a mainstream genre rather than a niche.

My biggest concern is not now, it is when some girls become 40 year old chubbas and what they will look like on the beach. Living in Paignton, I see some rare sights, you know, the ones you can't unsee Not that I could ever see you like that. Christ, digging a hole now, I'm off!

I love tats.
After a recent chat with a predominate Men's mag pic editor.
The publications seem to hate them.

I don't think the difference between a half and full sleeve would make too much difference to potential photographers - at least those shooting without a view to publication.  Depends on how relevant publication is to your career and whether you're aiming for versatility or targetting a specfic market.
