Artist's description:

While not having any tattoos myself I am in awe of people who endure the pain of it in order to adorn their bodies.

People have tattoos for a myriad of reasons; sometimes they are purely decorative, sometimes as a tribute to a person, place or thing, sometimes tribal or religious. This piece is in part inspired by the Maori tradition of facial tattoos and is complex and detailed. It features paisley designs which originated in Persia and are possibly an adaptation of the yin and yang symbol and a lotus flower, the Buddhist symbol of the path the enlightenment.

I am currently raising money for Mind, a UK based mental health charity. I am hoping to raise £800 and will be doing the Mind Hike in June 2018; a 24 hour walk around Cornwall to raise awareness. All profits from the sale of all my batiks will be donated to this, so please #makemeanoffer and know that you will be supporting a great cause!
