While people watching the other day* a friend remarked that a woman walking down the street had a tattoo all around one arm and all around one leg.
We both knew that the former is called a sleeve. What’s the latter called?
After many seconds of searching on The Google I have an answer.
Turns out it’s called a “full leg piece”, although some people call it a “leg sleeve” or also just a “sleeve”.
I agree with some of the comments online that if a sleeve is a tattoo around one arm, then a pant should be a tattoo around one leg.
I’ve written before about people watching in Cedar City at this time of year (but I couldn’t track down that post).
The Utah Shakespearean Festival resides here, and it’s one of the biggest of such festivals. It employs hundreds seasonally in my city of 30K people.
As soon as school is over, the (mostly Mormon) students at my mostly-residential school move home, and the (mostly non-Mormon) theater people move in to the newly vacant apartments.
If you people watch (as I do) you can play spot the actor at this time of year. It’s a local sign that summer is coming.
In this case, a woman in a dress revealing enough to show a full leg piece is … probably an actor.
