Spiritual Skin by Tania Marie
My dream is to create a full-service tattoo studio (permanent makeup, tattoo removal, and tattoos) that is geared specifically for women. I have been to enough tattoo parlors in my life to know how intimidating it can be to muster up the guts to walk into one. My goal is to create a space that is comfortable for any woman to walk into, whether they want a small tattoo or a more elaborate piece.
When most people think of tattoos, they correlate association of pain. This old school mentality is a deserving one- afterall, a tattoo IS a tattoo. But after years of studying holistic wellness and alternative medicinal lineages I have come to believe that there is another perspective. Tattoos are healing. Our body is comprised of a vast network of nerves, all in communication. From a holistic approach, many of our memories are stored in the physical body, and can influence the way energy flows- potentially causing blockages that eventually turn into physical ailments.
Tattoos can stimulate the physical body, and create an intention through the impression of an image on the body. It can be a profound way to release negative emotion of the past, and to move forward in our lives. It is easy to see how naturally this occurs, as most people tend to get tattoos at pivotal transitory times in life. Because of this, it is important to have your intentions clear before getting tattooed so that you can make the most of this energetic release. Your tattoo can act as a conduit for positive change.
An amazing book on the subject was written by Tania Marie called Spiritual Skin - well worth the read!!
