Flash of dahlias

dahlias

 I always liked to work with the seasons so I decided to bring them to my tattoos. I will create special flash art for each season. I love tattooing plants and flowers since I have a strong connection with them.

I decided to start with some dahlias. I usually turn around to contemplate them when I find them in my city walks or when I’m riding my bike. They just make me happy; their shapes and their colors, they look “strong” to me. I was just reading about them and I found that they are natives to Mexico (they are their national flower) and they were part of the Aztecs diet. Their original name in Nahuatl  is Atlcocotlixochitl comes from:: a-tl (water), coco-tli (tube) y xochitl (flower). It seams like it is 42 species if not more and they are divided in groups; in my flash I’m representing 8 of them (single,anemone, semi cactus,cactus, decorative, peony, collarette, orchid). They need a lot of sun and in North America we can see them in the late summer.

I would like to tattoo some of them before the end of the summer.  Write me an email if you are interested and please share it with your friends.

Siempre me gusto trabajar con las estaciones asique decidi traerlas a mis tatuajes. Voy a presentar flash art especiales para cada estacion dependiendo en lo que vea alrededor. Me gusta mucho tatuar palntas y flores ya que tengo una fuerte conexion con ellas.

Decidi comenzar con algunas dalias. Por lo general me doy vuelta para contemplarlas cuando las encuentro en mis caminatas por la ciudad o andando en bici. Me hacen feliz; sus formas y colores, las veo “fuertes”. Justo estaba leyendo sobre ellas y encontre que son nativas de Mejico (son su flor nacional) y eran parte de la aliimentacion de los Aztecas. Su nombre originario en Nahuatl  es Atlcocotlixochitl que viene de: a-tl (agua), coco-tli (tubo) y xochitl (flor). Parece ser que hay 42 especies sino mas y estan divididas enn grupos; en mi flash represento 8 de ellos  (single,anemone, semi cactus,cactus, decorative, peony, collarette, orchid). Necesitan muucho sol y en Norte America las podemos ver al final del verano.

Me gustaria tatuar algunas de ellas antes de el final del verano. Escribanme un email si estan interesados y compartanlas con sus amigos.

(perdon pero no pude encontar los acentos!!!)
