“Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.”– Jules VerneThank you Olivia for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! Project was done few months back, as usual. A bit about the project:“Altair is part of an asterism called the summer triangle (which joins Altair, Deneb and Vega) to help us see in the stars that it's summer. The summer constellation will resemble  the significance that this summer and year has had on me since I have gone through quite significant struggles this year and the tattoo will mark me turning over a new leaf.” – OliviaThe other significant inspiration was the H4 Harrison clock: “Aided by some of London's finest workmen, John Harrison proceeded to design and make the world's first succes

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:“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!

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“Time like the soul, wears many faces, many bodies and climates and attitudes.

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“[The universe] cannot be read until we have learnt the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written.

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.

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 “ - Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?- Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.”– Mr. NobodyThank you Daniel for the trust and complete freedom with your idea! “The mindset of how I see myself has changed, from “being” to “becoming” as I know I’m not limited to whatever I am right now. I’d like to be reminded that I can always be a better version of myself if I keep working on it, while I’m in peace with my current state.” Project was done a few months back while I was visiting home in Hungary.
