Mystic Pack: SHAKTI-7 by Jondix + INWARD by Thomas Hooper
SHAKTI-7 BY JONDIX
The classic illustrations drawn from these cultures are respectfully reinterpreted with devotion by one of contemporary tattoo art’s greatest interpreters of oriental style
This collection of flash can be used as a source of inspiration. It’s a valuable tool which Jondix wished to offer to every tattooist who loves this iconography, and it takes the reader on an incredible tour through the most authentic symbolism and iconography of these ancient cultures. Mudras, landscapes, animals, plants, dragons, and mythical creatures, over 1000 subjects, designed with simple black lines which Jondix assembles to create mythological scenes or simple, everyday, ornamental images.
«In hindi “shakti” is the name of a type of energy from nature that helps you getting things done, that allows you to be able to create. But we don’t have this word in the west, we would simply use the word “power” instead, which I don’t like that much if you use it all alone. And that’s why my hindu friend Manoj advised me to add my favourite number next to it, seven… It is also a little connection with my shop in London: Seven Doors Tattoo.»
INWARD: THE ART OF THOMAS HOOPER
The predominant influence for the artist seems to be nature, indomitable and marvelous. Another major vein of inspiration is cosmology and oriental religions, a genuine exploration of the deepest reaches of the unconscious. Popular symbols and imagery, but also geometric and mathematical patterns, they alternate and combine in abstract patches of colour with realistic studies of the human body and animals.
Apart from being such a popular tattoo artist, Thomas Hooper is first and foremost a world class artist who, through his work, expresses the human soul’s myriad facets. What sets him aside from his contemporaries is a constant striving to develop techniques and media which allow him to explore new ground. As a result, his work is always highly experimental, in constant evolution, and packs a powerful punch with his unique signature style.
