Choose your Mermaid Tattoo Flash

This week the gallery is dedicated to Mermaid Tattoo Flash. So, if you are planning on getting a mermaid tattoo any time soon, don’t miss our selection!

What is the mermaid apart from that familiar figure half-woman and half-fish? Is there some primordial secret hidden behind it all? Do they really exist or do they only inhabit the fervid imagination of poets, writers and painters?

Essentially, what the mermaid stands for is the goddess. And like all female divinities, she reminds us that it is only our yearning for the heavens that moves the celestial spheres and unleashes the constant energy of the universe. An energy which is manifest in the spray on the ocean waves. A devastating vital energy which the greatest poets simply call “love”. So we wish you the very best of fortune in the quest for your own mermaid.

This column is dedicated to tattoo flash: there will be loads of new proposals every week, in colour and black and white which we select for you from material sent to the staff. A melting pot on a specific theme from which to pick the subjects you’ve always dreamed of having tattooed.
