Adding elements related to the culture of the prominent tattoo is a common way of doing the sleeve. But creativity is playing with those elements and using them to your benefit.

Like here, the temple is made above the head, and then, to top it off, a leafless tree is added to it. A dried-out tree is the symbol of death, and dark clouds are for threatening loom or emotional difficulty in life.

95. Buddha And Skull Tattoo

The Buddha and the skull may not be the best elements that go together, but they are a great way to show the extremes of life and its dichotomy. As the skull stands for death, and the Buddha, in every sense, is the way to a beautiful life.

So the skull may be taken as an acceptance that death is inevitable and will come to everyone, so why not appropriately lead the life the Buddha way.
