A recent reader of Spiritual Skin shared: 

“I read your book and I have to say, I am not a reader, I buy a lot of books that I read half way and then give up. Your book is the only book that I have ever read every page of willingly. I’m writing to you in regards to a tattoo I would like you to design. I might actually want a few or just one big one. I’ve tried to meditate on it, but I can’t seem to quiet my mind completely. Asking you for your assistance just felt like the right thing to do. I have a Chakra book, a book on Egyptian yoga, I have audio books about the law of attraction, I have audio meditation guides that have been very helpful. I have books on angels (I love my angels), and I collect stones to try to meditate with them. I feel like I’m on the right path, but I’m just not getting something. Your book helped me understand a lot of what I have been reading about and listening to, more than everything I’ve been reading or listening to has. This is why I’m reaching out to you! Thank you for your time!” ~ Isabel C.

If by chance 20 isn’t reached by that time, whoever has purchased a copy will be in the drawing, which simply heightens your chances to win.  🙂

The book can also be purchased as a gift for someone or the design be given as a gift to someone if you win.

Spiritual Skin offers a new paradigm of enlightening perspectives on sacred tattoos that can positively enhance and transform your life.

“V” for Vegan – Pure & Simple Sacred Tattoo Design

vegan tattooVegan logos have gone through an evolution, but the message and symbolism remains the same:

“Veganism is pure and beautiful, a growth towards the perfection of compassion in action, victorious, alive and the part of the ultimate peace movement. An idealistic peace not just amongst human beings but peace with other species and our environment.” ~

I was asked to create a personalized “V” for a vegan animal activist who wanted simply to wear his statement of life path choice and compassionate mission in life as a signifying mark on his “Spiritual Skin.”

Nothing fancy. Just a new “V” that felt more aligned with him than “V’s” he’d seen out there and yet still felt to be part of the collective veganism movement. Something stand-alone potent and symbolic in its own unique way.

Use of the “V” symbol has become a signifying symbol for things certified vegan or certifying an organization fostering veganism. It also has come to designate that something involves “no animal testing or ingredients.” And of course, has been adopted by people who choose the veganism lifestyle, philosophy, and beliefs.

Pictured here you can see some examples of the “V” symbols out there found at


The “V campaign” has spread far and wide including at one time being found all over Facebook with vegans adopting the “V” in a circle by their name to signify their life choice, until Facebook took that option away. You now only see a few stragglers who managed to find a way to keep it.

It’s also been a way for consumers to more easily and quickly identify completely vegan, animal-free products – meaning they contain no animal products, were not tested on animals, and they did not involve the use of animal products in their manufacture.

As the use of the “V” spreads, it will also be a way to easily identify companies that share people’s support of veganism. And, the logo definitely also propels veganism into the mainstream of public consciousness more, raising interest in, and awareness of, the vegan lifestyle that people have chosen, as well as makes it easier and more accessible to take part in.

We’ve seen a tremendous increase in the number of people who are making conscious choices based on their own individual reasons, in reflection to shifts in their life, and this has led to more and more people adopting a vegan lifestyle. For many, it is a life commitment choice that people choose and desire to share as a reflection of who they are.

Today’s sacred tattoo design is representative of one person’s unique voice who has chosen to speak for the voiceless.

A Message of Compassion ~ Vegan Sacred Tattoo Design Available

vegan compassion tattooEvery 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
