170+ Awesome Fill in Tattoos For Sleeves (2021) Ideas with Pictures

Fill in tattoos are generally ignored by tattoo artists as well as tattoo wearers. However, A good Professional tattoo artist knows that how important a role filler tattoos play in a large size design. This post is not only for people who are looking for fill-in tattoos for their sleeves but also for tattoo artists who need new ideas for filler tattoos for their clients.

It is not the design of the tattoo that stands out from the crowd but it is the artistic vision behind the design that makes it extraordinary. An average tattoo artist often runs out of ideas when It comes to fill in tattoos.

There are designs for almost all kinds of tattoos from animals to people to mythical beings but for fill-in tattoos the artistic range needs to be out of the box. A filler design might look simple on paper but it can supplement the overall appeal of a simple sleeve tattoo. This is the reason why you should never ignore filler tattoos.

There are many cool designs that you can try to fill in tattoos but there are few things an artist has to keep in mind. First of all the filler design needs to sit perfectly well with the overall theme of the tattoo. Secondly, its color pattern should match the original design. DO NOT TRY TO FILL IN TATTOOS IN DIFFERENT COLORS.

Fill in Tattoos Ideas

Some commonly tried filler tattoos are –

Old School Tattoos – Have you ever seen sailor jerry tattoos? Those designs are a perfect example of how cool old-school tattoos are. The good thing about old-school designs is that they can blend perfectly with a large design. I have hardly witnessed a bad-looking old-school filler tattoo.

Neo-Traditional Designs – The Neo-traditional design is inspired by the Banksy art of20th century. The beautiful thing about it is that it gives a wide variety of options thus making it suitable to blend with tattoos that have unusual ink colors.

Tribal Patterns – How can you miss tribal designs? A good tattoo artist learns the first thing on how to blend a tribal design with a larger piece. Since tribal patterns are mastered by almost all new tattoo artists so chances are that you will never run in an artist who doesn’t handle tribal filler tattoos well.

Abstract Art – If you want to stand out of crowd then give abstract designs a try. At first, your overall sleeve tattoo might look odd but once you give 360 turns to the whole design you will love how the final finish turns out.

Geometric Shapes – Many tattoo artists in the late 90s and 2000s showed that geometric shapes too can be a great fill-in design if done carefully. Usually, people pick up shapes like Circles, Triangles, Rhombus, or even Polygon. You can analyze your design thoroughly and decide which geometrical shape will suit your needs.

Fill in Tattoos Meanings

Fill in tattoos does not need to be meaningful. These are fillers of your larger-size tattoo design. However, if your larger tattoo piece has a specific meaning then you have to be extra careful in picking a perfect fill-in tattoo.

For example, an angel tattoo design will look even more attractive if filled in with doves, wings, and white light. A Lion tattoo on the sleeve will look great if filled in with a cloudy background. There are so many designs that the sky is the limit. You have to just look around for all the available options.

Since fill-in tattoos are usually small to micro in size therefore we have chosen zoomed-in pictures of these filler tattoos. As an artist, you can print out these designs and have them with you as you will have a collection to show your client.

So without any further ado, lets take a look at the 170+ best fill in designs for your tattoo sleeves –
