Lotus of Life

A soft lotus contrasting with orderly geometry.

Underbusts have almost been a fashionable tattoo for a while, so when i was asked to do this project, i really wanted it to stand out and be a piece on its own, not just “another” underbust. So instead of the usual Henna/Mehndi style used by many, i wanted to create a calm and balanced design, almost meditative, so i focused on the use of the Flower of Life pattern, and a Lotus in my own style. And of course, my signature Teal colour.

I still drift back to the same leaf-shapes whenever i get to do Asian-inspired floral designs.
