i don't think i've seen you posting ink work! it's so clean. the snake leaves me speechless -- he's eating himself?!

well. i don't know what the meaning is (i tried to think about it, even though you said it was done without any side-story), but it looks really cool!

i hope you find time to make art that is for yourself as well, and not just work. :)

this is but a cover from book with poems. polish author, but poems are pretty good. this symbol is not my invention by any meaning - it is ouroboros (i guess that how it is in english, cause in polish is uroboros, but we speak it the same). it is the symbol of everlatsing and neverending. also i guess you can connect it somehow with phoenix symbolism, but i believe phoenix is a little more dramatic;)

actually i'm wondering if i should paint something tonight. but i'm kind of tired so.. not sure about this. but this is true, AGES since last time i made something worthy od upload here:)

I have trouble seeing the meaning of the Dodecaeeder with the more obvious allegory of uroburos and PI

this would work so magnificently as a tattoo... you could place it just about anywhere on the body and it would be equally magical and meaningful.

Too chicken..? I'm very sorry but I'm french & too me chicken is only the bird wich sings on the morning, & I don't think that you're someone that I could eat at KFC ._.
Please eplain xD & he wants to tattoo it on his scapula!

jabberholic Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
i mean - i am too afraid:) not of the pain or anything like that, just i'm afraid that when i will have such tatoo - next day i will realize that ...i don't want such draw or something like that.
scapula? maybe he will think about centally on his back - between shoulders blades. it's such symetrical draw it will be looking good when placed central. but hey - it is only sugestion:)

Neya-Andy Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
You're right! But in fact he'll probably have your drawin on one of his shoulder blade because on the other one he wants a kind of compass, like the sailor had before. So as the twice are round paterns that's why he could have one on each scapula!
You know I think that to be tattooed you must be sure since above one year about the drawing & the place where you want it. Or you could be.. Very disapointed, for sure T_T [link]

I found it fascinating. The serpent eating itself as a perfect example of a cycle and the pi symbol at the base of everything. Beatiful.

One Question, Which book it is?

:iconjabberholic:
jabberholic Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
