Lets bring to tattooing the knowledge and understanding the ancients believed and worked with. It is time to bring back the Old Ways, from a time that has been forgotten in most areas of the World and a practice that had Spiritual Connection, Ceremony, Healing and a way of Balancing the Energies that make us who we are on this journey. In a world of superficial consumerism and distractions keeping us from truly connecting with ourselves, our ancestors and our relationship, or “Creationship", with the People and World around us, it is time to help balance these energies that connect us to Spirit, Heart, Mother Earth and the Universe.

White Ink Tattoos are a wonderful way to be tattooed in a more subtle way. Sometimes we want the lines or symbols on us but not so obvious and noticeable. White Ink is a really beautiful way to carry your special symbol or design.
White Ink Tattoos are soft, delicate and have a mystical appearance about them. A subtle way of wearing your meaningful symbol, talisman, sigil, rune and anything meaningful or decorative.
