Custom Tattoo Design
Size; Half sleeve.
The design is inspired by the cosmos.
The Pleiades (Seven Sisters) , is an open star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky.
It also features a variation of the Metatron’s cube, Antakarana symbol (associated with reincarnating part of the mind) , platonic solids & the flower of life (from sacred geometry) & a Merkaba (a mediative symbol which represents the 10 qualities of the tree of life. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. )
The art is angled or cropped for copyright reasons, please do not use the art.
Have a wonderful weekend

This inky design wraps around the arm, joining with a DNA spiral & tree of life & carbon symbol (symbolic of life).
Contained within this design are many esoterical references. The barn owl sits on a dodecahedron (symbolic of the universe) amongst the flower of life, which grows up throughout the design. The planets orbit in sequence around the minds eye (with closed eye) A mandala combines the planets in orbit (distance from the sun) and a Metatron's cube.
Once again … Huge thanks go out to my client!

This inky design wraps around the arm, with an extension onto the top hand and fingers.
Its starting point of this design was ‘family’.
At the bottom of the design, is a reference to mother and father. 6 branches for 6 of the family, with a vesica piscis (mother) and roots/ seed (father) A curve of (semi) circles flow into the next section of the design, representing union.
The middle section, features 4 constellations of each sibling, which join up into 1. There are 4 and then 6 squares to represent the family.
The third section features a sun and moon mandala, with flower of life
Running through the middle of the design is a collection of connecting platonic solids and geometric shapes.
The top of the design is the clients ‘birth mandala’, representing the client and the universe. An eye looks outwards and towards the family. The mandala illustrates where the planets were located on the birth date.

This design features a mandala, inspired by a compass rose . Arcs, circles, planets flow and move from it, symbolizing travel. Asymmetric (at the clients request) the design features a geometric map, with Australia as the starting point. An icosahedron sits within the design and is representative of ‘go with the flow’. An arrow points the direction.
Thanks to my fab client and hope you have lots of adventures!

A really great project to create. Huge thanks to my client for the open brief.
I mostly post my work, flat, But for a change I have added in a mock up of the ink, in 3d - so you can see how it would work around the arm !
