“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.” – Milan Kundera
Winston Churchill said that a dog looks up to us, whereas a cat looks down on us. What better way to acknowledge the loyalty, respect & admiration our canine friends offer than with a dog tattoo. They may not live as long as us but we can immortalise them through ink. Pugs. What a pal!
In a world where we’re taught to adopt a tough facade, it can be a radical act revealing who you are beyond the mask you wear.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes struck a chord when she wrote the book, Women Who Run With The Wolves: “Wolves and Women have much in common. Both share a wild spirit. Women and Wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen. ... Even in captivity, one can see in the eyes of a Woman, or a Wolf, the longing to run free, and the determination that should the opportunity arise, whoosh, they will be gone…”
Maybe you’ve heard this old Cherokee tale of two wolves. This tattoo is a visual representation of it.
Inside you lives a wolf of white—of patience, peace and love. He is forgiveness, hope and light; this wolf of white, his gifts will set your spirit free. A wolf of black, as dark as night lives next to him inside. He’s hatred, rage, cruelty, fright, intolerance and pride. This wolf of black, his teeth will make your spirit bleed. Within your soul, the two wolves fight to see which one will give directions and win the right to show you how to live. Which one will win? Depends upon which one we feed.
Of all the Saints doing the rounds, Mary personifies the peak of piety.
What design could be nobler than displaying the Virgin Mary? For those wanting to emblazon some tranquil holiness, you can have her depicted in prayer, while more progressive presentations showcase her shrouded in energy fields. In the past, Mary was inked by women who wanted to express their femininity. Today, these tattoos are popular for men who want to express their feeling for their mums, partner, or to enshrine their commitment to their family unit. For a certified path to salvation, consider getting her benevolence on your body.
