This is my thigh piece, my second tattoo.
Art by Michael Kozlenko. Done at Kipod Tattoo in Tel Aviv, Israel.
It took total of seven hours, in 3 sessions. It was unbelievingly painful, but so totally worth it. Michael was so kind and caring and really helped my through the pain.
At first, I didn’t knew how to explain or describe what I wanted. All I knew was that I want it to be very, very colorful and large, in some abstract way, and in the middle of all the colorful mess, a Serotonin molecule - not drawn or painted, but in negative. No one understood me, but when I met Michael (I knew all along I wanted him to do it, his color works are so beautiful) it was like he could read my mind, and interpret it into a basic sketch. I could just see it in his eyes that he understood me completely, and do I trusted him to make it half free-hand. I can’t thank him enough for the final result. I love it so much.
What’s the meaning behind it?
Well, first of all, I just love color tattoos. Second of all, it means a lot of thing to me regarding my relationship with my depression, which has been a part of my life in the past six years. I can see many different things in it, and so can you, I guess.
p.s. I have more photos from different angles… how do i upload them too?
