Permanent Freckle Tattoo

Tattooing freckles is becoming a popular trend in the tattoo and cosmetic world. Unlike regular tattoos which are meant to stand out and be very noticeably a “tattoo” cosmetic tattooing uses subtle pigments that look natural, especially when they fade.

While it is a tattoo, these kinds of cosmetic tattoos tend to fade quite quickly, and are often only semi-permanent, and will need touch ups to make it last.Generally speaking these tattoos will last around 2 years before they will need a touch up, or you can let them fade away entirely.

Goddess Kali Tattoos:

Kali is a Hindu goddess often misconstrued as a goddess of death. While she does bring about the death of the ego and demons, she does not kill humans. She is the counterpart of the more violent deity Shiva the destroyer, both of whom are the destroyers of unreality. Kali is depicted as a woman with a garland of skulls or heads, and dismembered arms, because the ego arises out of identification with the body. She also is usually seen with black or dark blue skin, which symbolizes the womb of which all creation arises and into which all creation will eventually dissolve into. So she is often mistaken as a fearsome deity, she is actually a motherly figure.

As a tattoo Kali is often done in American traditional style, neo-traditional, black and grey, or realism.
