i designed this to be a tattoo dont know for sure that the coloring would stay this way but after i had the pencil done the crayons were calling my name!
I am trying to design a beautifull tattoo for myself, to represent me. something that really moves me and captures me.
i envisioned this on the back between the shoulderblades, quite large. and eventually the branches of the tree of life would connect to other pieces that would represent various friends family or aspects of my life.
The wings are powerfull to me because of my name, and the goddess symbol is threefold, 1 to honor the great mother, 2 because every woman is a goddess unto herself and 3 it represents the phases of a womans life(maiden mother and crone). the pentacle is just a strong symbol of power representing all the elements and the crescent moon is to me always somewhere between broken and whole.
also this piece can be done in stages, the pentacle and crecent moon, then the tree and finally the wings.
i dont know if this will for sure be the final piece, its lovely but doesnt feel quite right yet, but i am on the right track, now i just have to add my tag line in gaelic (not all who wander are lost)
