When I was writing 21 Tattoos, I wanted to go more into the significance of the tattoos, but it took me down a rabbit hole that went deeper and deeper. I decided to share this information with my readers who were genuinely interested in the deep dive of meanings, significance, and placement of the tattoos in this separate book, 21 Tattoos Book of Tattoo Meanings, which goes into much more detail.
I chose which tattoo metaphors seemed appropriate for my story. I also mixed and matched symbols and metaphors to make them unique to the storyline.
This will help when reading the books to apply the symbolism attached to some of the events, feelings, and actions. I have written a total of 3 books to date. The first will be released in October 2023, the second by October 2024, and the 3rd by October 2025.
People have been decorating their skin with tattoos for centuries. These permanent markings, whether simple or intricate, are always unique and can represent protection, status, devotion, spiritual faith, embellishment, or even be used as a form of punishment.
There was a sacredness in the paint and the symbolism of the color used.
Tattoos and Magic have long been associated with each other. The primitive man believed that tattoos cured sickness and illness. They were known to give good luck, used as love charms, to preserve one’s youth, and for things as random as rainmaking.
My book represents a multi-level perception of human behavior and spiritual providence. The spider web can be used in this book as a symbol of how our life paths can lead us in so many directions, and we can get caught up in the web very quickly if we are unaware of where we are and what we are doing. This holds true to our relationship to the internet(www) and how much power it has over us.
I look forward to the interpretations my readers come up with after reading 21 Tattoos.
