Hi guys! It’s been quite some time since we featured a tattoo. Thanks for visiting our website again. Today we feature our friend Charles Daryl’s awesome ink. It’s a great design with intricate details and color. Here is what our friend has to say about his leg tattoo.
“My tattoo has three elements in it, the bicycle chain ring, the Om and the colors. Om as we all know has a lot of deep meaning, but it is universally accepted as the symbol for the all encompassing state. The color blue means control, red means compassion and the purple (blue+red) means recognition. Chain ring symbolizes the bicycle.
The bicycle has always played a role in some of the highlights of my life up until to the present. Riding my bike is not just a recreational activity for me it has also helped me clear my mind and helped me regain control of difficult situations in my life. When troubled I just grab my bike and ride out, focused on the bike, my surroundings and the ride nothing more. After the ride I have a clearer mind to recognize the situation that I am at and usually able to work my way out the situation.
I decided to design a tattoo that would help me remind me of the state of mind that I have when riding my bike if I am not on my bike and a tattoo that will also remind me to push forward and pedal more when I am on my bike. Having all of those in mind I cam up with this design and decided to have it placed just above my right inner ankle so that I can see it when I am on my bike.
Mam Frances! Thanks po ulit for the wonderful work on my tattoo, naka line up na po yung next!”
Thanks Charles! It was fun doing your tattoo and can’t wait to tattoo you again. See you at the shop soon!
