A Reflection of Reason - Acrylic on Wood Painting by Shane Acuff

 

Lidless and vigilant your compass rests, a beacon of feeling within the heart of your chest, infinite value and color the mind collects and projects, an endless possibility it most greedily protects. But to be fully engaged and at peace in the moment, the giver wields both tools to become the atonement. Listen to the compass within your heart, lest your mind stretch beyond limit and tear us apart.

Rise Up - Illustrative Phoenix Feather Quill Forearm Tattoo by Shane Acuff

 

A few months ago Shane held a contest where people submitted ideas to win a free tattoo. The deal was, the idea that inspired him the most would be chosen. The winner was a lovely lady named Ruby!

She wanted a quill pen made from a Phoenix feather that looks like it it is on fire with two meaningful words which serve as her reminder that when she gets knocked down by life's obstacles, to always remember that the direction forward starts by her will to Rise Up.
