This design is inspired by the balance between life and death, wild nature & science.




It was an open brief.




The main feature is a tree of life with flower of life petals at the base of the tree. The end of the branches have no life/leaves. The tree is formed from within a Metatron’s Cube.





It features a deer, with a nature mandala. Circles and spheres punctuate and flow through the design, inspired by the cosmos. You can also see the chemical atom symbols for oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen & carbon.




The design is wrapped to join around the calf.




The back of the calf has the deer & mandala, it will also be supplied as a separate patch, so the tattooist can reposition as they need to.

CUSTOM INK | FLYING JUNE BUG


Custom Tattoo Design. Calf. Height 33 cm.


This design is inspired by nature & family summers







It features a collection of magnolia flowers , bugs, branches & buds





The insects are ‘June bugs’ (We call them May bugs here in the UK)


The term “June bug” isn’t a scientifically assigned name. Instead, it’s a common name applied regionally to a variety of different beetle species. Often know as the Chafer Beetle


‘June bugs' are not very skilled aviators. They tend to bump into objects and usually fly in wide, lazy arcs




Magnolia flowers are thought to be the one of the few flowers to survive the ice age


The client wanted them to be illustrated flying on the end of a string.


The large design is for a calf (the string end will then wrap around the ankle)


The single June bug will be placed on a different area of the body
