A Message of Compassion ~ Vegan Sacred Tattoo Design Available
Every sacred tattoo design I create is an honor and deeply moves me. Having soul resonance not just with each person I co-create with and support, but also with the vast eclectic, collective symbolisms and stories that channel through, really completes me.
I find this to be some of the most fulfilling work that I do because it encompasses so much of who I am, beyond who you see in the flesh before you, as well as has such empowering effects for others and the collective.
I’m excited about the pieces I’m currently involved with working on right now and today’s sharing has a special place in my heart on many levels.
Today’s sacred tattoo design is of great honor to share, as it is an integrative healing message that channeled through from a collective pool of energy. It is actually one I created for the sake of creativity and expressing a powerful vision that was guided to come through (much like my paintings).
It is available, if it calls to your heart.
I had been commissioned a couple of weeks ago to help create a sacred tattoo design for a special soul who is vegan and wanted something sacred that conveyed his individual life path choice of veganism and what it meant for him worn proudly on his skin.
I get inquiries and requests a lot about vegan/compassion- themed designs from people that are choosing to live more compassionately from the choices on their plate, to the ways they support the environment, and how they are consciously choosing to also embody more of this into their daily experiences with self, others, and all of life.
For some reason a lot of this has come in, not even just in terms of tattoo discussions and incorporating part of that in their design, but also in terms of people making life shifts they are transitioning through that have collective impact for all living beings, the Earth and Cosmos at large.
Perhaps this is why, I kept receiving a message to create a specifically symbolic design to mirror this energy that is abound and when actually sitting down to work on a piece for this person that was completely vegan-themed, it was a catalyst for this to evolve after. The other piece, along with a few more I’ve been working on, will be shared another day, but this design that channeled through, felt to be important to share now.
Once I completed the sacred tattoo design for my client, I felt compelled to create this manifestation of the essence that had been streaming in from another channel. It originated as an abstract essence that included multi-layers of integrative healing symbolism and unconditional compassion with a collective message, as well as created a powerful individual statement of life path choice.
The “V” vine and leaves that frame the Buddha’s Third Eye both expands the energy/message/unconditional compassion out through the crown as the “V” widens, as well as draws and focuses the energy into the body with the “V” pointing down. (The “V” has become a symbol chosen for many vegans to convey their life choice path.)
Interestingly, when I saw it completed, I remembered this vision had been one that has come in and out at different intervals over the last couple of years, but hadn’t fully formed until now. Timing is everything 🙂
As I’ve mentioned before, these individual sacred tattoo stories also have a connective thread to supporting more than the person it has been created for, as we are all connected. And when one person realizes their true being, all human beings have the same potential. But this is the first time that rather than creating an imprint from tuning in to ONE particular soul within the tapestry, I was downloading and receiving from the COLLECTIVE tapestry and I feel that there is someone’s voice this piece was funneling.
This happens often, especially when I’m in creative mode and tapping into that unlimited energy, that I start receiving and things percolate at the same time. This is how I am constantly being engaged in processes, so that when I actually go to do the work, the work is already done and I merely have to allow it to come through.
Needless to say, this is the first design that is actually not created for a particular person in mind, although, as I shared, I sense that I was drawing in an essence mirroring of someone. And so, this sacred tattoo design will be the first of perhaps others to come that I am offering for purchase, already completed.
If this piece speaks to you as a reflection of your authentic soul essence story or feels to convey the collective message you embody, you can contact me to purchase this sacred tattoo design to wear as your “Spiritual Skin.”
For this piece, rather than go into layers of detailed descriptions on symbolism, I would rather the voices of these visionaries convey the heart-full message:
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ – a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein
Lots of people talk to animals…. Not very many listen, though…. That’s the problem. ~ Benjamin Hoff
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. ~ Anatole France
Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes! ~ Theophile Gautier
An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language. ~ Martin Buber
Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored. ~ Alice Walker
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account? ~ Jean Paul Richter
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being. ~ Abraham Lincoln
All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do? ~ Buddha
The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man. ~ Charles Darwin
What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected. ~ Chief Seattle
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. ~ William Penn
Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. ~ Albert Schweitzer
