    Tattooed with an anchor comprised of light blue ink and edged in red. In maritime lore, this symbol represents the success of a seaman upon the ocean. It is said to guarantee stability and security in the physical world, and, by extension, also steadfastness, hope, and trust.

    Avoirdupois prayer:
    Tattooed with an ornate bastard sword with tip pointing down bearing an aged maple rosary wrapped around the cross-guard which forms an infinity symbol. Super imposed on either side of the blade are two rearing destriers, one white and the other black. In a circle around the whole thing this prayer is written, 'Oh, great radiant Light that shines upon us, may you illuminate my path and ensure that my sword rings true against the enemies of your divine plan'.

    Avoirdupois toile:
    Tattooed with a complex toile that cascades downward to seamlessly flow into a rearing blue destrier at the center.

    Tattooed with a single hammock floating on the wind between two massive oak trees. Just before the hammock a pond has a few lily pads floating on the inked surface. A ghost image done in grey overlaps the rest of the picture; the ghostly vision is two wolves in profile with their muzzles tipped up as if howling at a moon.

    Celestial zodiac:
    Tattooed with white specked dots on a blackened sky. On top of the simple night sky a gold and purple circle surrounds a crescent moon inside a sun.

    Fleshy corset:
    Tattooed with a fleshy corset via ink. The back has been morphed into a life-like depiction of the garment. The seam of the corset runs down the spine with the strings of the corset loosened at the top as if coming off.

    Floral sun:
    Tattooed with a floral sun design. This tattoo uses a scrolled vine as a backdrop, framing and contrasting with the central sun image. The sun itself is also given a floral treatment, it's petals or rays, blown in the wind and turning over to show the yellow color of their underside.

    Full-rigged ship:
    Tattooed with a full-rigged ship. This piece of artistry represents the dangerous accomplishment of sailing upon the sea. The port ship light is red, and the starboard light is green to show the orientation of colors at night by which a sailor can tell if a vessel is moving toward them or sailing away.

    Gliding eagle:
    Tattooed with an elaborate gliding eagle. Detailed wings are outspread and heavily striated with contrasting black and white ink to suspend the creature in mid-flight. Its regal head and beak are upturned with wise, golden eyes focused skyward in an air of meditation or prayer. The talons are extensively shaded and loosely curled beneath the body of the creature to symbolize self contentment and spiritual protection.

    Tattooed with a labyrinth. An ancient symbol that relates to wholeness, it combines the imagery of squares and lines into a meandering but purposeful path. It represents a journey to our own center and back again, out into the world.

    Light protection prayer:
    Tattooed with a pair of aged hands holding aloft a white steel longsword with a semi liquefied black smoke dripping off the tip. The smoke morphs into the following protection prayer, 'Light watch over your servant, temper my will in iron and endow me with the mettle to stand against all adversity, for it is my blade that cleaves through the clinging dark in the hearts of men'.

    Maul smashing skull:
    Tattooed with a maul smashing a skull. Bone fragments have been inked tearing away to fly in all directions.

    Nautical skull:
    Tattooed with a blackened skull bearing a beard of tentacles.

    Peacock feather:
    Tattooed with a colorful and vibrant peacock plume. A large, deep blue eye bordered by a crimson 'eyebrow' has been inked in the center of the piece and is framed by feathery and fringed fingers in a slew of rainbow colors. They taper decoratively downward before ending in a gently curved point. It symbolizes creativity, spiritual evaluation, and rebirth.

    Tattooed with a sad panda. It has been depicted with a smoothly shaded white face, teardrop-filled dark eyes framed by rich black pools of fur, and faintly drooping round ears.

    Sea serpent:

It serves as a warning of clinging too heavily with the heart, and understanding that love is the fruit, but our obsession with it can be as choking as the vine.

    Eagle and snake:
    Tattooed with a battle royale. This is a classic design that represents opposing forces locked in combat. An eagle in mid-air with wings fanned out clutches a hissing snake firmly. These two together represent the forces of creation and fertility and the forces of nature which are ever in opposition but always in balance.

    Elemental koi fish:
    Tattooed with four koi fish swimming in a swirling pool of sparkling blue water. The first koi fish is bright red with a ball of fire surrounding it. Next is a dark blue koi fish with light blue swirls dancing around it. The third fish is white with black spots and is sitting in a fluff of clouds. The fourth fish is green with jagged boulders floating around it. The fish curve around each other to represent the balance of the elements.

    Heart lyrics:
    Tattooed with an oversized heart in mid-beat with a trail of staffs, brackets, and braces decorated in a myriad of clefs radiating from the center outward in a diagonal fashion. A wavy banner adorns the bottom of the heart ending in ribboned tails with the words 'Bumpbump da bump' inked along the length.

    Tattooed with a rosary, or chaplet. It is a string of beads grouped in five sets of ten, or decades, with a large bead separating each set. The beads culminate in a small medallion with Saint Helloise's picture and then a small string of one bead, three beads and one bead, at the end of which is suspended a small octagram of creation.

    Tattooed with a golden seahorse. The seahorse is tattooed in profile with shades of gold, pale and dark, giving shimmering depth to the ridges along its body. A symbol of bounty, it stands hauriant, spines emerging from its head and back like a mane. Its tail curls and wraps around the body, anchoring it.

    Tattooed with a triquetra. It is a tripartate symbol composed of three interlocked vesica pisces, marking the intersection of three circles.

      Abstract smoking pipe:
      Tattooed with a slender, feminine hand lightly shaded in muted grey and black ink lines. The fingers curl gently inward to grip a stylish black smoking pipe with an almost feather-shaped mouthpiece that lazily trickles a trail of swirling maroon smoke into the background. The bowl of the piece cradles a pale red heart comprised entirely of delicate rose petals that have gradually begun to overflow. A trio of these in various stages of openness and life hang suspended in mid-air, captured in their descent of the body. Overhead, a centrally positioned hazy red sun has been strung with flowing cursive letters that follow its circular border and read 'The Ones Who Got Away'.

      Child silhouette:
      Tattooed with a trio of child-sized silhouettes forming a haphazard pillar against the gentle glow of a starlit night sky like some ephemeral tapestry. The youngest figure balances on top of the obscure living ladder while futilely reaching for the brightest star at the center of a densely speckled wayward nebulae. Shining eyes glow with unspoken hope as fingers curl inwards, willing the ardent star into his open palm. The other two accomplices rest on hands and knees with the largest of the group on bottom, both reach out with splayed fingers, fingertips nearly touching the nearby twinkling stars that evasively dance from capture. For those who can connect the dots easily, the tranquil lilliputian stars in the dark velvety sky discreetly read, 'Never Stop Believing'.

      Everchanging tree:
      Tattooed with a center piece of a large, colorful tree. This tree represents the changing of the seasons via its shifting plumage of foliage. The left side of the tree is vibrantly alive and all green, obviously the leaves of summer. These leaves gradually change into bright shades of red and orange. The leaves of autumn are the most colorful, right as they fall into piles at the bottom of the tree. As more leaves fall the branches of the tree are left barren to represent the hibernation of winter. Soon enough bright pink blossoms start to dot the empty branches and eventually turn into a plumage of pink spring flowers.

      Tattooed with an extensively muscled and oversized grizzly bear with razor-sharp teeth parted in a roar. His face has been tattooed to depict an ornate death mask and is scrunched with ferocity allowing the majority of his scars to stay hidden from sight. He's clad in a black textured loincloth secured in place by a matching trophy belt adorned with a skull overflowing with crimson blood. His claws are blood-stained, and his rust colored fur has been methodically highlighted with blood-colored ink lines. An intricate series of tribal symbols and swirls radiate outward from the sides of his body.

      Tattooed with a massive hybrid creature. Half skeleton, and half octopus, it stares menacingly into the unknown through large, round orbs which have been darkly shaded in rings along the outer rim and then wind inward into an almost luminescent white. Sizable oblong ears set with gridded holes grace each side of the head, allowing the creature to hear passing ships and other water disturbances. The skull itself is comprised of two sets of six bones situated horizontally against one another, and decorated on the right and left by glowing balls of light. Eight bubbled and bony tentacles lash outward from the beast in a three-dimensional manner, sinking into the skin in random places and almost seeming to disconnect before emerging from a nearby piece of flesh mere inches away and continuing downward into the tips.
