“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 went on a 14 day silent retreat and it was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

“I’ve been consistently dreaming strange but extremely comforting dreams when I was around 10 years old. I haven’t had them since and I really miss the feeling. It felt like I was sliding on a tubelike soft surface into a hole, where there is a source of a bright light. I wasn’t thinking about anything, and can’t really tell if it was my body sliding or my mind. I believed and still believe that the route was taking me to an another world, to an unconscious one.” ― Zhaxiyangdan Thank you Zhaxiyangdan for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes” – Mahatma Gandhi Thank you Eddie for your trust and for the complete freedom with your first tattoo! Project was done few months back, as usual. “[...] I would like a tattoo inspired by my childhood and travels I have done. I have done a lot of adventurious travelling abroad including a lot of hiking up mountains in countries such as Peru and Nepal. Seeing and getting to immerse myself in other cultures has certainly broadened my view and brought me down to earth. My parents have sacrificed a lot to me in my childhood and brought me up in the manner where I should learn from my mistakes and they have given me all the freedom I could have had.

“I've always been fascinated by memory and dreams because they are both completely our own. No one else has the same memories. No one has the same dreams.The reason I talk to myself is that I'm the only one whose answers I accept.” ― Lois Lowry Thank you Alicia for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! “This [spruce] tree means a great deal to me. I grew up 50 meters away from this tree and therefore had the chance to see its majestic beauty evolve from season to season for more than 25 years. This tree can be seen from anywhere in a 10-mile radius and therefore brings me confidence and a sense of joy and peace as it reminds me of my days as a young and innocent girl who had ambitious dreams. It reminds me how far I have come to this day. It also reminds me of my Home, my Family, my Friends and my dear pets.” Done at the beautiful @southcitymarket -Finest black ink in London- Books open for London Inquiries: peter.laeviv@gmail.com . . . . . #tattoodo #sin
“[...] as a whole I think I’m a little lost. And so perhaps that’s the idea, no? Doesn’t everyone feel a little lost? Do they sometimes feel like they are walking in circles? Are on a thin wire between the ‘success of life’ and the demons that become obstacles? Sometimes I find it hard to know what it is I’m doing. What it is I want. Which often leaves space for insecurities to sneak inside my head and make everything seem fuzzy and out of reach.” — Elle Thank you Elle for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! Project was done good few months back, as always.
