Every tattoo has a story and it’s really awesome to hear it from the client himself.
So we haven’t edited or deleted anything from what the client has written.

“Everyone has their own battles to face in their lives. Whatever the circumstances, each and every one of us have gone through ups and downs. A quote from a Sylvester Stallone movie comes to mind – “It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” – That’s the basic philosophy that inspired me to get this artwork done.

So the tattoo itself is split into two different tattoo’s merged into one (on the recommendation of the artist, which turned out to be some ace advice).

1st – Mental Alchemy – The symbol refers to the art of changing and transforming one’s own mental states and conditions, as well as influencing those of others. It encourages you to “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative” from your life. The larger circle, triangle, square and the smaller circle represent a persons Body, Mind, Heart/Soul and Spirit. If one can strive to have all these elements in tune and pure, you can possess the ability to change all that’s negative in your world into something positive.

2nd – A verse from a poem “I’ll Rise” by Maya Angelou..
Just Like Moons and Like Suns,
With The Certainty of Tides,
Just Like Hopes Springing High,
Still, I’ll Rise..

I just fell in love with these lines the moment I read them. Found it to be one of the most inspiring things that I have ever read. To me, it signifies hope, courage and determination. No matter how insane your life gets or how challenging it becomes to survive, at the end no matter what, I’ll come out of it, victorious and proud.

Upon discussing my ideas with the fine people of Ace Tattooz and putting forth my concept of how I want my entire world to be what these two ideas put forth in their respective ways, the artist suggested to put in an extra element and merge a shading of the map of the world in the background which would be symbolic to the idea of “My World”. Although sceptical at first and after a lot of thought I decided to listen to their advice and boy was I glad! It’s turned out to be a beauty! and that too, my first tattoo! completely chuffed about it.

So to sum up, the entire tattoo signifies the triumph of courage, hope and perseverance through the medium of being positive in all situations in life to make this a better world for myself and others too.. It has come out fabulously well. So grateful to Ace Tattooz, Nikhil and the artist Upen. Cheers guys, I’ll treasure this jewel for the rest of my life!”
