A Tattoo commission I did in 2016. The client wanted the tattoo to be an add-on to an existing tattoo and the original concept was based on the poem from Maitreya The Friend of All Souls, The Holy Book of Destiny.
If you do not know it goes as follows.
"And when they seek to oppress you
And when they try to destroy you,
Rise and rise again and again
Like the Phoenix from the ashes
Until the lambs have become lions
And the rule of Darkness is no more"
The client has not had the tattoo applied yet. I will update this project if they ever do get it done to show the final result.
