“Your children are not your children. They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for thir souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the make upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness. For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He also loves the bow that is stable.”– Gibran Khalil GibranThank you Ben for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! Ben’s

A wise man once told me that the longest journey I will ever embark on is the journey from my head to my heart. And so as I'm not one to waste my time, I learned to listen to my gut instead.
Consciousness starts in your gut, so be mindful about what you eat and keep processed irritants away from it.
Your gut contains hundreds of millions of neurons, which are connected to your brain through nerves in your nervous system sending bidirectional signals. When you damage your gut-biome, you damage your inner wellbeing physically and emotionally.
This also has little to nothing to do with the actual tattoo I just thought I'd carefully spoon-feed you the above.
Thanks for reading! And thank you Elle for your continuous trust over the years. We've been building a sleeve for Elle based on her life experiences over the years. You can see an old healed work the other side of her arm if you swipe.
A lot of the people I get to have the pleasure to work with are returning clientele wh“There were many times in my life, when I could've thrown in the towel. Many times in my life when I was on the floor. And when you're on the floor, never allow anybody to pick you up. It doesn't matter how long you stay there, make sure you pick yourself up and dust yourself down. Whatever happens, whether you go home today or you don't go home today, that's irrelevant. What's relevant, is you take the knowledge from the experience and you grow as a person.”— Marco Pierre WhiteThank you Alexandre for your trust and for the complete freedom with your first tattoo!

I guess what I am trying to say is that you have to embrace the changes because everything is part of you and the person you are becoming and that nothing lasts forever, not the happiness but also not the sadness but should try to find the beauty in everything you face.” ― Melissa Domínguez López
Thank you Melissa for the beautiful thoughts and for the wonderful person you are. Wish you all the best in life.

Man has become so rational, so utilitarian, that the trickle becomes most pale and thin. It is efficient, for mere survival, but it screens out the most wondrous parts of man's potential experience without his even knowing it. We're shut off from our own world. Primitive man once experienced the rich and sparkling flood of the senses fully. Children experience it for a few months-until "normal" training, conditioning, close the doors on this other world, usually for good. Somehow, the drugs opened these ancient doors. And through them modern man may at last go, and rediscover his divine birthright...”– Tom WolfeThank you Tybalt for your trust and for the complete freedom with your tattoo! “[...] A few years ago my best friend and an aunt killed themselves a month ap“Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

Day II/II. - Tom's life story sleeveI always believed that life grants endless possibilities for those who seek it. While they might not fall into one’s lap incidentally, taking action will dramatically increase the amount of possibilities being presented.Tom wanted me to visualize his life experiences from childhood to present day, both good and the bad and his outlook on the future. We spent 3 days together so far, and more is to come. You will see progression of this project in the coming days.“The universe is a multi-dimension al creative process, constantly forming new facets of possibility for you and all living things. Expanding our awareness of the process, we allow ourselves to experience more of it. Every moment we can remember that anything is possible in a realm of endless possibility.”– Marianne WilliamsonThank you Tom for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! Project was done a few months back.By @peterlaevivTo join the waiting list:“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 #bla“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”― Jack Canfield Thank you Shaolin for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

Examining the plants and looking for ladybirds on the way. I remember as kid how I was also fascinated with the tiny ecosystem of bugs.Tom wanted me to visualize his life experiences from childhood to present day, both good and the bad and his outlook on the future. We spent 3 days together so far, and more is to come. Can’t wait to put some more days into this project. “The very old and the very young have something in common that makes it right that they should be left alone together. Dawn and sunset see stars shining in a blue sky; but morning and midday and afternoon do not, poor things.”– Elizabeth GoudgeThank you Tom for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

Timelines and different storylines are being represented coincidentally. Tom wanted me to visualize his life experences from childhood to present day, both good and the bad and his outlook on the future. We spent 3 days together so far, and more is to come. You will see progression of this project in the coming days.“Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that.

Because it's not always what you want. It's not always what you expect. It's not always what you imagined or hoped. But it's one of the most important things in the world.” ― Ben Schnetzer
