We are a tattoo studio staffed by all female artists

with a focus on personal energy and collaborative creation.

The act of tattooing is hallowed, and when the artist and client alike treat it that way, the tattoo becomes a reminder of the greatness one finds during this journey. We access the spark that animates us through sacred modification of the exterior.

 

i walk towards pain

afraid

until i see

how colorful i can be

and i am not afraid

*

not to properly mark the past

is to wander history a nomad

in the crossing

charon offers

a relinquishing

of  body

          space

                  place

and can it be beautiful?

and can it be beautiful?

and can it be beautiful?

 

*

they say kharon was ugly

grotesque and repulsive

such is grieving

and yet with him

was

Transformation

 

you are the river

you are the boat

you are the ferryman

you are the destination

*

charon knows all that she can know

while still knowing nothing

 

only you can look inside

to where you have been

where you have travelled

and where you have arrived.
