I have this plan for a tattoo for my left arm. I have been trying for a while to figure out what I want, all I knew was I wanted a sleeve and I wanted something different. And I have finally figured out what I want. I have the eye of Ra on my left wrist and it gave me the idea of doing the whole arm with the theme of 'eyes'. I mean the eye as a symbol has been around since man learned to use a stick to draw 2 circles with dots in the middle to make boobs. It has tons of means from references to god; to a symbol of protection.
I did a quick search on the eye and found all kinds of ideas, and yes I did (pirate) download the pictures off the sites to use for visual aides for my future artist. You see I can not draw for poop, well except stick figures I kick ass in that! I also found out that labriynth symbols have similar meanings and I hope to put that in as well. I hope to have the blue one below as the top part on my arm with the 'eye of god' in the middle. To reflect the idea of the hard road to god. Now, I am not religious in any form of the word but I do believe there is a god and the path way is not through a book written by man.
I have always wanted a tattoo with a work of Escher and this would fit perfectly:
I saw many ideas with the Masonic eye, I like this one tattoo but not so much color in it. Then I found the black and white one that I might use over the colorful one.
I am no Mason and most likely will never be one but I still like the symbols they use. And the whole eye thing fits in with my theme I have in my head. I have saved up enough money for about 2 hours worh of work. And since you really cannt have too much done at once I will just keep saving up while I am waiting, to find the right artist, him/her to draw it up and letting my first session to heal. By that time I should have saved up more money for another 2 hours lol.On another note on the same idea the wife asked for a tattoo as a Xmass present.....hot sooo hot!
