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

| This design features a beetle with outstretched wings & an Icosahedron |
| The Icosahedron is the fifth and final platonic solid having 20 triangular sides |
| The Icosahedron is associated with the element of Water and corresponds to the Sacral Chakra. Water symbolises movement, flow, and change. It allows for freedom of expression, creativity and ‘going with the flow’ |

CUSTOM INK. Borneo Yantra

Thanks go out to my client!
The Yantra is a linear geometric figure that embodies in a symbol, the spoken chant or mantra. In essence, it is a symbol of the cosmos. If sand is placed on a taut surface and the ‘aum’ sound is chanted, the sand will vibrate and move into a yantra shape.

In the ancient world, the bee was very important indeed, as the honey it produced was one of the few naturally occurring sweet substances and it was also a preservative.
Images of the bee can be found on coins from Ephesus, 5th century BC.
In Minoan symbolism the Goddess appears as half woman, half bee.
In Egypt, the bee was the symbol of the lower kingdom
