This is the begining of my new life dedicated to the Light. Shedding the old negitive parts of myself.
This tattoo intitled "GreenMan" was done in the image of my husband, my Beloved. Showing my absolute love and commitment. This was the process in which the idea came to me.



Ink...


An electrical charge             

sparks a thought 

as the Third Eye

Flutters

 Opens

 lights dance

beyond closed lids

focusing

collecting energy

Totems

 Projected

in the dream state of the brain

 from the darkest depths of ones being

Centering now on one renewing vital image

 Conception

The waking mind

 Haunted by this need to make the talisman real

To make a pact irreversable made flesh until death

 Primal reasoning, Primal action

 To make memories emblazoned in INK

Dreams made manifest

With each stroke colorful tingling

 spikes of pain and redeption

Tracing each sensual line

 That wraps the curves of the body

 INK Bursting through Skin

Casting a spell

Ink, Blood,Vaseline

 Pleasure and Pain

 each penetration of the needle

Vibration, Exilaration

the skin pricks awaken and anihilate

Fear, Pain, Pride

Rebirth ~ one step closer to identity

 welcoming embrace

The epidermis painted forever with the secrets only revealed to those brave enough to enquire

There's so much to "investigate" here, Michelle. So much depth of meaning and such. Thank you. Love and peace.
