Compression garments for cancer patients are often flesh-colored to remain as unnoticeable as possible, yet they still manage to stick out horrendously; enter these deceptive tattoo sleeves. They are compression sleeves that have been re-imagined to stand out. Full of vibrant colors and bold patterns, they look like authentic tattoo sleeves.
Created by LympheDIVAs, a company founded by Rachel Troxell, who has since sadly passed away, the compression tattoo sleeve came about after the goal of designing comfortable, breathable and lightweight garments was achieved. Although the initial designs shook up cancer boutiques, they have since become hugely popular. Over 20,000 compression tattoo sleeves are sold a year. The customers don't fit a specific mold either, ranging from women in their twenties to seventies.
