Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time, and doomsday and is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure and symbolic of motherly-love. Kali also embodies shakti - feminine energy, creativity and fertility - and is an incarnation of Parvati, wife of the great Hindu god Shiva. She is most often represented in art as a fearful fighting figure with a necklace of heads, skirt of arms, lolling tongue, and brandishing a knife dripping with blood.

New School Tattoos Are Brilliant Art

New school tattoos, sometimes called new ‘skool’ tattoos, are known for their vivid colors, thick line work, and cartoonish proportions. Despite their name, they are heavily influenced by old school American tattooing styles. The new school tattoo style represents a rebirth of traditional tattoos with a wider variety of colors and gradients to deal with. Along with that, new school tattoos cover all types of subject matters, from the old school eagles and anchors to more recent caricature styles. All tattoos are works of art, but thanks to their innovative tattooing techniques, new school tattoos stand out as brilliant.

Although scorpion tattoos are not that mainstream, they are popular. They are mainly worn by men, but some women may like them as well.

Like with all animal tattoos, a scorpion tattoo represents the traits and attributes of the scorpion. Someone who gets this arachnid tatted on their body might want to send the message that they are deadly, stealthy, and not to be messed with. In addition to representing the scorpion's characteristics, this tat could also be a symbol of a variety of other meanings, such as the zodiac sign Scorpio.

What is a Mandala?

In its basic form, a mandala consists of a square that contains four gates with a circle and a central point. It emanates radial balance and portrays a sense of proportion. Today, mandalas commonly refer to geometric patterns, charts, and diagrams representing the cosmos in a symbolic or metaphysical sense.
