The sun wheel pattern symbolizes the strenght of the deer.
Do I really have to mention, that these tattoos don´t have a political background...?
Entirely handmade, pieces like that take a day each to produce.
Why do the tattoos have different tones of black?
The bird on the left shoulder is two years old when the picture is taken, the bird on the right shoulder two days, deer on the left one day, the bird on the right two hours.
What happen is that especially the handmade pieces need a day to "arrive", meaning the dots are darker the day after. Then they bleach again a little within the next weeks, when the new skin grows over it.
