Chaos and Logos

A sudden and inexplicable burst of madness led me to decorate my left arm with a tattoo at Grasshopper Studio in Thamel, Kathmandu, owned by a friend of mine going by the name Bikash. The ink runs as follows:


The joint symbols of infinity / logos / emptiness / light / wisdom and space / chaos / form / darkness / ignorance, linked to each other by a bubble of cosmic mystery, are a symbolic caption of the fundamentals of our existence.

Drawing from the concept I drafted together one foggy evening at Om Tara, Bikash did a few touches and tweaks, arriving at the final product shown above.

* Bom Shankara, Baba Bolenath, Hara Hara Hara Mahadev *

It's been in the plans, to better keep the two sides in a contrast balance. I've been thinking of a hybrid with a Nordic solar wheel. No drafts yet.
