From the tattoo recipient: Finally got my lupus wolf I’ve been wanting since I was diagnosed!
The word lupus (from the Latin word for wolf) is attributed to the thirteenth century physician Rogerius, who used it to describe erosive facial lesions that were reminiscent of a wolf's bite.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body).
This wolf is stunning and the use of the pastel colours is gorgeous.
It shows flair and creativity.
I love the expression on the wolf’s face.
It shows a cheeky nature and the colours add a playfulness.
The tattoo also has some blurred lines.
I believe this sums ups the owner’s character nicely. I believe there are times where boundaries become blurred and unclear and are overstepped.
But because of your light and cheeky nature you get away with it.
The wolf is a complex animal. Did you know that wolf is the consummate comic of the wilderness. Their commitment to and love of family is humbling, their communication skills elegant, and their extreme intelligence awe-inspiring.
Wolf is also very intuitive and relies on this for survival.
Wolf helps us when we face challenges for which we feel less than prepared.
Wolf reminds you that you have all the tools in your spiritual treasure chest to handle this effectively. Take a step back and see with fresh eyes.
This part of your arm is the sensitive part of you.
This is also on the left side of your body which is the feminine side.
So, this is all about your feminine power.
The inner arm is where you show to yourself what you need to be reminded of.
This is like your own personal message pad.
It is also what you keep close to your side and protected unless you want to reveal it.
In the picture you can see that the tattoo can be seen from behind.
This is letting those behind you follow your lead.
Be inspired by the steps that you are taking forward even in adversity.
