  • Shadowhunter Runes/Glyphs
    Here lies of Rune/Glyph (Tattoos) I made exclusively for Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter series. The Titles; The Mortal Instruments | The Infernal Devices | The Dark Artifices

    It's a pretty long and growing series. There are several other Shadowhunter titles I cannot (and will most likely never be able to recall. I'm only one rather short girl after all. There is only so much data 5'1" can retain.) These rune/glyphs however, world over venerated designs have donned canvas shoes, iPad cases, hair fades, bedroom/office walls, notebooks, backpack, best-friends with sharpies, pastries of all sorts, jewelry and weapons wear. But more devotedly the skin therein. I'm dedicated to expressing my heartfelt "Agape" affection, whereas this here is a collection of the more officious forum connection; well I say officious I really mean pretty. As the series grows I will add what/when I can but there is so much more of you than my s'elf. So many pretty vids, I'm going to try to keep it structured and aesthetic for your viewing pleasure.

  • Frequently Asked Question: So, how does it feel to see your runes all over the place? Isn’t it awesome?!
    you know, its now been about 15 years I’ve watched my artwork donning people’s skin. I want to say it’s terribly different seeing it large scale, big-screen, dolled up all-film sized but it really isn’t. certainly it’s on a grander scale but that loses a certain intimacy that personally tattooing people, becoming part of their story, learning about theirs gives me.
    Now lemme tell you about what is exceptionally different about this experience;
