TATTOO CONVENTION ANTWERPEN

We didn’t plan to go in the first place, but we decided to join the Tattoo Convention in Antwerpen this week. Our friend, Andy, from Tattoo Left Hand in Driebergen got an beautiful tattoo by Ade and he decided to join a contest on the convention and Ade won the 1st price in the category Tribal or Celtic! Thank you Andy, Nicole, Guy and all the other people for this amazing weekend!

14 April we will be heading back to Indonesia, and we probably will be back around July!

SAM + JOEL

Sam wanted to make a tattoo influenced by the place where he has his roots. His family comes from Manado, Sulawesi. Where the owl is an important symbol. Ade turned it into a more modern version.

Joël, wanted to get tattooed for more then 12 years, but could not find the suitable design. We met him a couple of weeks ago and it directly clicked. And day by day Ade started to design an unique design for him, based on him as a person.

Because Joël is a light-painter, you can see his work here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelkiel1982/, and a creative mind, he told us:

My creativity starts in my mind, after that it flows through my heart, through my arms, into my hands‘.

A little explanation about the piece:

The upper part is the Sri Yantra, which excists out of 9 triangles which are all created out of the center point, the Bindu. It’s an symbol of man and woman, and also for: Shiva (the male) and Shakti (Female). For Joël it symbolizes the connection between new ideas and ideals. For creation and creativity.

The text is Om Mani Padme Hum, a mantra. For Joël it means being proud, passional and a new start. The mantra is mirrored on the other side to show the two sides of life, black and white, life and death etc. You can also see the Wheel of Dharma which is a symbol that has represented Dharma, the Buddah’s teaching of the path to enlightenment.

For a first tattoo, this design was kinda heavy. But Joël seperated the man from the boys and handled the pain very well ;) This piece will be continued later to be a full sleeve.
