Maori Art

Skin III

Originally uploaded by isolatediguana

While in New Zealand back in 2006 I fell in love with the Maori people and culture. The tattoos specifically were something that drew me in. Many of the tattoos are traditionally on the face, of course I doubt I will ever be that brave. I love the strong bold designs as well as the flowing curved lines.
The most recent tattoo of mine is Maori inspired and I am proud to have a piece of their culture as part of my art.

gorgeous.  Love the light, the disheveled hair, the desaturation, and the ink.

New Beginnings

When it comes to the blogging timeline, I have been a “blogger” since the near beginnings. Over 5 years now I have recorded thoughts, feelings, and adventures and shared them with the online community.  Up until about a month ago it was something that I did every week or so whenever I had something new or interesting to write about. I can’t really explain what happened but with the loss of a loved one, I decided to delete my blog. 5 years worth of ramblings gone in the click of a button. I didn’t feel sad, or like I was losing anything. I felt released. So in light of that, I have decided to start this project, not so much a blog but more of a showcase for arts, or anything that I feel needs to be noticed and remembered.  I hope to be completely honest, and diligent in this project and to start fresh on a new path with my purpose being to “Breathe Culture” into this space.
