4TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

Verjaardag_369

First we want to thank you all for your birthday wishes yesterday on Facebook, Twitter and by email! And we want to thank all of you for your support over the last 4 years! You guys are great. Man, time flies by…4 years. We started this blog and the concept of 369 four years ago, not knowing yet how this would develop. We wanted to create a name, a project and a platform for both of our expressions of art, tattooing and photography. Something that would represent a collaboration between two people, with both a passion to express them selves. One creating permanent designs, inspired by ancient ornaments and symbols with a modern touch and one in the world of still images telling hidden stories. We started this blog as our way to tell others about our art and interests. We started small but are now happy to welcome hundreds of new visitors each day, we feel blessed. In this year Ade travelled around, did some tattoo conventions and recently started a new adventure. Together with her colleague Joel (2XWORKS), Lielo (HOLY BIRD) decided to take a break for now from doing photo-shoots. She is still making photo’s on a daily basis but is now mainly focussing on the management part of 369 and Ade ItamedaAnd also in this new year we will keep uploading more of Ade’s tattoo work with background information and more travel-logs and photo’s of our trips! And there are some super exciting things in the pipeline, we can’t tell you more at this moment but more details will be posted soon! So keep an eye on the blog!

For now: Salam Budaya!

VIDEO – WAYANG ARJUNA

 

Arjuna

WAYANG ARJUNA

This is a tattoo Ade made a while ago on one of his customers.

A little background information; Arjuna is one of the most known characters of the traditional Wayang shadow plays in the world. Arjuna is the third of the five Pandava brothers from the Mahabharata story. He is a master archer and considered to be the hero of the battle of Kurukshetra (a historical and religious important land in India, 3200 B.C.), a fight between the Pandavas and the Kauravas (2 princes). Before the battle starts, Krishna (the 8th incarnation of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism) teaches the warrior Arjuna that it’s not about land and power but all about the human spirit. Arjuna is the only hero in the Mahabharata story that was undefeated. A bit more about his character; Arjuna is described as the one whose mind is spotless and clean of all impurities. even describes Arjuna as Anagha, which means pure of heart or sinless. He was a very handsome, gentle, loyal but also a fearless man. He had strong magical powers which he developed in the time he lived as a prince in the palace. In that time he also studied things such as literature and philosophy, beside the knowledge of battle and war. He was loved by many and was known for his many love affairs. But like many heroes, Arjuna is not much of a family man: he has the habit to go off on his own looking for action.
