"Purple Ribbon" that represent a brain condtion that I have called "Chiari Malformation".  Had to have an Open Decompression Brain Surgery for this condition, along w/ another brain surgery not long after, for "Pseudotumor Crebri"... And inside the ribbon is a "ZIPPER", representing "ZIPPERHEAD".  In which I've earn that name!  Then, I had decided to change things up a bit w/ zipperhead tattoos by adding a couple "feathers" below...as a feather can represent MANY things, as one being that I've overcame MANY obsticals, w/ MANY medical aliments...many years of suffering, more than a handful of all types of Surgeries.  But not just overcoming the "PHYSICAL" part, but also the "mental", "emotional" and even the "spiritual" aspect as well.  Accepting that I am no longer the person I was 8-10 years ago.  Still learning new things for the person I am now.

I have a findness for all things cute! One of the first tattoos i had done many years ago that i had recolored.“The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one. The barrier between them cannot be said to have broken down as a result of recent experience in the physical sciences, for this barrier does not exist.”― Erwin SchrodingerThank you Charley for your trust and for the complete freedom with your tattoo! I loved working on this one as its subject is very close to me. “There's something poetic about the basis of life being greater than the known universe. Similarly with wave-particle duality, I was always taught that electrons were subatomic particles so to discover that they're also waves opens up a whole new bunch of questions that I'm looking to answer. In short what I'm looking for the design to represent is the unanswered and unanswerable questions but also the comfort that comes from the unknown.”By @peterlaevivInquiries:peter.laeviv@gmail.com.....#tattoodo #singleneedle #londontattooartist #tattooart #blaI am working on the arm with many tattoos that I did not do, but it is very interesting to play with shapes, contrasts and textures!  Mac Miller from the other side!  happy week everyone #tattoodo @tattoodoI’ve never dreamed of becoming a tattoo artist it just happened. I wanted to be an architect like my father but i was too lazy to go school or work for something back in the day. Also i wanted to be a rockstar/firefighter/sportstar/007 agent and many many things but ended up being a tattoo artist which i enjoy every single day. Hope you have a great weekend (in this shitty weather). Here is a piece that i did couple of days ago to a lovely client.

When I started to do them, I followed trends and popular aesthetics, added tribals, etc. I hate this part of tattooing when u have to communicate with a client like it's some kind of service industry. "I would like to tattoo a dick, but only pinkish and remove these hairs on the eggs, because it looks more like a cat." I just can’t learn how to say no, usually make some attempts to find a compromise, and then customer telling me goodbye because I'm not a professional. And I'm not a professional. I do this because from childhood I was fond of art, went to art history courses at the Pushkin state Museum in Moscow, then discovered a tattoo, went to tattooer firstly on 16th birthday after earnings money as a waitress, followed a lot of masters, many of whom made me tattoo at the beginning of their career, when I understood that in future they will become stars. And I always looked at
Did one of my designs on a guy with the same name as myself. I like the fun in that. Loneliness in the universeLoneliness is a feeling that has become one of the characteristic features of our generation Z. In theory, a person as a social being surrounded by other individuals should not experience this feeling. Is it the result of the appearance of social networks and online life for show, or the fact that we have much more information about the world and people that we want to get away from this? For me personally, this has become the main feeling of life and creativity. I didn’t draw, and I thought that I didn’t know how to do it, until I was at one moment at the bottom of the darkest, most drawn and dreary loneliness. Before that, I tried to close the disconnect with the world, communicating with people who were doing something of what I thought, I was never given and never will be. But if it happens that these very people are knocking the soil out from under your feet, then you, like Alice, are flying to the bottom of the same dreary rabbit hole. And that made me who I am now. The more you delve into knowledge, the less you want to communicate with most people and the more necessary it becomes to build your own world. One of my favorite artists, Victor Pivovarov, a representative of Moscow conceptualism, a landmark in unofficial Soviet and then Russian art, in 1975 produced a series of “Projects for a lonely person” that roughly describe a “perfectly lonely” person. I also decided to make a series of illustrations to the philosophical aspects of the consideration of this concept. Still, I'm also a kind of Moscow conceptualist. The second image I will attach the work of Pivovarov.Based on the generalized picture, we can distinguish four images of loneliness: cosmic, cultural, social, interpersonal.So N1:Cosmic loneliness is a person’s experience of his remoteness from the “all-encompassing” essence, which nature, cosmos, and the world can seem to be; God, the "highest mind" '; human history. This refers to the state of mind of a person who realizes that his “life program” remains unrealized, that his personality is not noticed by society, that he has not left “his mark on history”.I decided to do somethin different. Not as the dragon you used to, but a close up, face to faceA skate deck I that I painted a while back “I went on a 14 day silent retreat and it was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done.Towards the end of the two weeks I had what I think I can only describe as an out of body experience during the 4am session. I felt an overwhelming bubble of sadness and guilt literally rise within me but it wasn’t mine I was just experiencing it for someone else, I opened my eyes in floods of soundless tears that also felt not mine.I forgave my mum there and then, and it felt natural that I would stand by her no matter what, no more distancing myself, no more pushing her to get help, I would just be there unconditionally.When I left and came back home my mum told me she had something to tell me. She’d woken up really early in the morning (around 4am) and she said it was then clear what she had to do and why she had to do it.I believe I felt what my mum was feeling. I still don’t know what my mum actually felt that morning but it gave her the power and motivation to change her life.”“I have always had the sensation of having to choose which path in life I should take. I have been torn between the decision of excelling in this physical reality, and doing everything in my power to make my time here on Earth truly incredible. Or to dedicate my life to the exploration of the universe found within, however this would result in excluding myself off to the world around me. After trying the latter for a year I came to the realisation that I need to find a balance, I discovered that love is at the core of both paths but one cannot work without the other, there is a symbiosis at work. I need to find a way to do both…”– ElliotThank you Elliot for the beautiful thoughts, your trust and complete freedom with your idea!
