IN THE CASE OF TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS IT IS RECOMMENDED TO TRAVEL INSIDE
Here we go again – Corona is everywhere. It’s getting colder outside and the number of cases are rising. Getting on and off the train to the north, south, east or west is no longer an easy journey. Previously, we tattooed the compass on our skin; as a sign for navigating through life, as well as for our longing for peculiar experiences, strange skin, exotic cities and beaches.

Is that all over now? Hopefully not! Now we face the question; how do we live out our lust for adventure while we wait for this pandemic to be over? Stop the wanderlust? The lust of the flesh must wait, not just in the erotic sense of the word. There is a ray of light and we find this light within ourselves. Nothing and nobody can stop this journey; neither viruses nor governments. The inner journey is a mystical journey that introduces you to the archetypes within you. Archetypes are the images of the experiences you encounter in life. On your journey inwards you will find pictures that are ideal for tattoo motifs. These pictures are very personal impressions of your soul world. Hero characters, magicians and sweet seductions such as elves and sirens can do that. Anything is possible. Reality is split, and illusions are suddenly truer than any postcard.

TATTOOS ALSO WORK INWARDS. A JOURNEY INTO THE INNER WORLD OF IMAGES.

These can also be pictures that you have never seen before. To a certain extent, they reveal themselves behind the eyes. I was able to make many impressions from this trip, from red jumping horses to blue balls, black dancers and many related emotions. I saved the best for last: “The advantage over chemical substances is that you can switch off the lamp if you feel unwell – and everything is over immediately,” says Raf Buchner in the magazine “Spiegel”. He is a professor at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. Ralf Buchner made it possible for us to try out the alternator. (Link: here)
I can personally recommend this train ride. I am able to tattoo the pictures from this trip on my skin as souvenirs. As well as with a trip to a foreign county, the journey into the interior I absorbed visual impressions that I will definitely remember. This has also helped me spiritually and open new horizons. Such trips are an alternative that is worthwhile during these travel-restricted times. It definitely does not get boring. I can have new experiences within my four walls and tell of these experiences with my tattoos.
