Around the age of 36 or so I finally bit the bullet and got my first tattoo. Yes It was a bit late in life to do so but what can I say I wanted to make sure I wanted one. I decided that when it came to getting a tattoo whether it was the first or the last it would have to be something I drew myself. Here I am 10 years later and have begun work on tattoo # 5, Quetzalcoatl! Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent of the Aztecs.
The god Quetzalcoatl, is the Feathered Serpent or Precious Twin. He is the godintelligence and self-reflection, a patron of priests. Quetzalcoatl is a primordial god ofcreation, a giver of life.
The Myans called Quetzalcoatl Kukulcan: Kukulcan, meaning “the feathered serpent,” was the Mayan’s supreme god. He was the god of the four elements, as well as a creator and the god of resurrection and reincarnation. … Kukulkan (“Plumed Serpent”, “Feathered Serpent”) is one of the many gods in the pantheon of Maya mythology.
I began the drawing for this tattoo about 430 pm on a Wednesday and worked until 12 midnight and worked on it again Saturday around 2am. So far I am loving both the drawing and the tattoo, the outline was done the day after the drawing was started. Luke Thrasher of Thrasher Inq in Nashville, TN is doing the tattoo. If you’re in town and looking for an amazing tattoo artist, I recommend contacting him. By the way he is Nashville’s only Private Custom Tattoo studio. You can look him up at https://www.facebook.com/Thrasherinqarts/ I’ll be posting updates on the drawing and the tattoo as they come along.
