A beautiful tattoo my friend Karen has on her back, done in individual dots over a long time. Very intricate!
Om Shanti Om
Volcano Blue Henna September 2009
This is the Hindu symbol Om. It is the symbol of the Absolute. I was asked to do a symbol of importance and great meaning. This is the first thing that came to mind. In this picture the paste is still setting. The next day the symbol was barely visible. She kept the paste on for about 8 hours but her skin there was just too resistant. Even after a touchup reapplication the next day it still would not hold. Unfortunate because I had the shape very crisp! It would have been beautiful. I made a home made transfer to use as a template, but that was drawn in reverse in free-hand. I want to try this design on someone again. Volunteers?
Finalmente ho fatto il tanto desiderato tatuaggio...le mitiche carpe koi e il fiore di loto con il simbolo dell'om nel petalo centrale.... MORE INTO Dedicato al gruppo che ha dato un senso alla mia vita... ° New Skin °_Incubus www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxkInQxB-Sg At first I see an open wound infected and disastrous. It breathes chaotic catastrophe, It cries to be renewed. Its tears are the color of anger, They dry to form a scab. To the touch, it's stiff and resilient, underneath, the new skin breaths. It's all been saved, with the exception for the right parts. When will we be new skin? As outwardly cliché as it may seem, yes, something under the surface says, "C'est la vie." It is a circle, there is a plan, dead skin will atrophy itself to start again. Look closely at that open wound, see past what covers the surface. Underneath chaotic catastrophe, creation takes the stage.
just after... complete with 'icky' skin, which has calmed down and smoothed out now!
