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?
A beautiful tattoo my friend Karen has on her back, done in individual dots over a long time. Very intricate!
experimenting a bit w/ the remote & photoshop :)
7 June 40th birthday tattoo the lotus to represent spiritual fulfilment (awakening to the spiritual reality of life), non-attachment, purity and creative power. the om (or aum), apart from being the universally accepted symbol of hinduism, is the holiest mantra of all, and represents all of reality (past, present and future - transcending time), the divinity in each of us, the supreme non-dual reality tattoo by sumithra debi
