Tattooing as Medicine

Throughout human history tattooing has being closely associated with and often synonymous with shamanism and medicine work. Tattooers through their work, much like bar tenders, often serve people in thier most extreme moments in thier lives, such as times if great loss, desperation or great happiness and celebration. I feel very honored and fortunate to be able to engage in this ancient ritual tradition to help others heal through their traumas.

Not long ago I performed my first ever piece to cover up and hide a woman's mastectomy scars and give her beautiful flowers to celebrate her survival of cancer and new dawn. I've been honored to turn self harm scars into beautiful art, giving a powerful and creative outlet for another's pain. In this photo from three years ago I tattooed my friend Jon who lost his arm after falling in front of a train, employing humor, one of the oldest and most natural of all human medicines for healing.

Modern Art: a reflective image of the Kali Yuga Age.

A inspired ranting inspired by reading the begging of my friend Zachary Taylor Meade’s primer 'Primirdeal Geometric Supremacy: The Implicit hierarchy of emergent form'. A lot of the points and ideas I discuss in this are a re-visitation of ideas I write about on my website blog a few weeks back. This entry i wrote was titled 'God Us Dead: Postmodern Piss Christs and Cultural Traditionalism' ( https://cvltovthebikervvitch.com/blog/9/30/y/god-is-dead-postmodern-pisschrists-and-cultural-traditionalism ).
