The seemingly simple can reveal the deepest truths, as my latest ink does.
The mountain lion, the master of stalk and ambush hunting, came into my life last summer, and its powerful presence guides me on the trail I'm on, teaching me about boundaries and balance, focus and quiet power, and the importance of connecting with the wild within.
This big cat spirit has become my greatest mentor, which is why I chose this design, made by Joanna Price for the book Boundaries and Protection by @pixielighthorse, for my 40th birthday.
I'm currently writing a piece about it, which will be published later on.
I want to give a big thank you to @shiftynewton at @huckleberrytattoo for making this beautiful animal come to life on my skin.
