For the last few ears I've been studying the art of ancient tattooing, as well as intuitive energy, and spiritual healing. Tattooing has been around for thousands of years and has been used for man different purposes. In some ancient civilizations the tattooers were said to be clairvoyant and could sense what your body needed.

They used their intuition to create tattoos for anything from healing, to protection, fertility and even as tributes to the gods. The images and symbols used were said to help the wearer with the difficulties in their life. People still visit Thailand today to get something called Yantra tattooing or Sak Yant. It is a form of tattooing that consists of sacred geometrical, animal and deity designs accompanied by Pali phrases that are said to offer power, protection, fortune, charisma and other benefits for the bearer.

At Iron Lion I'm going to continue to do business as usual, tattooing as I always have!!! So don't get nervous. But l'm also going to offer a completely intuitive tattoo experience for anyone who is interested. This will consist of 2 sessions. The first session we will meet and have a consultation where I'll get a feel for your energy through Reiki, meditation, and oracle cards. Then, I will intuitively come up with the design based off of the images that came to me. In the second session, I'll show you what I came up with and we will tattoo the piece (with your permission of course ).
