“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!

“ - 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.

Project was done few months back, as always. We had to finish the whole thing in one sitting. Normally a project like this would take 1.5-2 full day sessions' worth of time, but it was a fun challenge to see where my threshold lies.

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.

I did my speech at the funeral comparing him to a butterfly because he has ADHD and used to flap his arms when he got excited and always used to wear very bright clothes as well. One of my most memorable conversations with him was about butterflies and how much he'd love to be one.”– JoeThank you Joe for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

As I don’t live in France, not sure if I will return, move elsewhere, or stay here I don't quite know if I will be able to grow one from the same tree’s seed. So I wanted to always have it with me as it is a family symbol for us and oak trees are pretty robust growing strong for long.”— ArnaudThank you Arnaud for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

It is highly rewarding when there is mutual trust and the connection is strong from the get go between me and the client.“The paradox of trauma is that it has both the power to destroy and the power to transform and resurrect.”– Peter A.

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.

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“[...] 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.”— ElleThank you Elle for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea!

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.
