CUSTOM INK | Shen | Archive


I have a hundreds of design which have been created since 2014. Most of them I haven't yet managed to get around to sharing on line.

I am trying to rectify this in 2022, but looking through the archives and posting a few here and there!



| Medium Custom Tattoo Design From The Archive |

Final Design

Sacred Shen Ring | Custom Tattoo Design | Punctured Artefact
Custom Art

This design features a Shen Symbol, water, Icosahedron, looping circles, tetrahedron, geometric mandala, flower of life & initials

| SYMBOLISM | In ancient Egypt it was represented in hieroglyphsas a stylised loop of a rope.

The shen ring is most often seen carried by the falcon god Horus.

It was used as a magical aid; during the 3rd and 4th Dynasties it was worn around the neck for protection.

Because the circle had no end, the shen-ring was regarded as the symbol of infinity, and when it encircled the sun, as the symbol of the eternity of the universe.



I created a similar design, which you can now find in my tattoo Tattoo Flash Store

Harmonics Icon 1

| Symbolism | A Shen ring is a circle with a line at a tangent to it. The word ‘shen' in ancient Egyptian means ‘encircle’ & therefore linked to eternity |

FEATURED TATTOO FLASH | Sacred 27 | Sacred Shen Ring | Punctured Artefact

Shen Icon 2

| Symbolism | The Shen ring represents eternal protection |

This design is inspired by the eternal universe, symbolism, mandalas, platonic solids & sacred geometry. The scale of this design is ideal for a forearm.
