A beautiful tattoo my friend Karen has on her back, done in individual dots over a long time. Very intricate!
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?
