That’s cool mate just join a circus and make a profit from it :lol:

But on a serious note, I don’t think it has anything to do with insertion points to be honest. I know when I first started both of my arms looked long and fleshy, but know after a few years of weights and particulary from more recent arm training the muscles have shortened and have become alot more muscular and defined, which looks really good to me.

I would imagine that you are exaggerating slightly on the appearance of each arm due to the fact that you will notice more than anyone else ever will. But I know what you mean with gaining a balance if you are one side dominant. I did a post up on this ages ago (?) and we all discussed ways to balance this up. In summary your best bet is to try and use your left arm more now in everyday life and throw another 1 or 2 reps on to your left arm exercises.

It takes a long time, but it will eventually balance out. :wink:
