Body suit (tattoo)
Such suits are of significant cultural meaning in some traditional cultures, representing a rite of passage, marriage or a social designation.
The example pictured of a full body suit in progress displays a horned snake on the chest that wraps around to the back continuing onto the right arm, two birds on the left arm, a foo dog on the right leg and a mouse and monkey on the left leg.
A 'full sleeve' is a tattoo which completely covers an arm, from the shoulder to the wrist. A 'full sleeve' can be part of a 'full body suit'.
A 'backpiece' is a tattoo which largely or completely covers the back, and can be part of a 'full body suit'.
