The Eight of Swords Tattoo Studio & Art Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn presents an exhibition of original works, From Darkness to Wonderland, by Brazilian artist Lore Morato. From Darkness to Wonderland explores Morato’s inspired universe through elements of nature, femininity and mysticism.

About the artist, Lore Morato…

A self-taught painter and tattooer, Lore Morato has displayed her work at galleries in Germany, Brazil and in the states. She has discussed her art in interviews on two prestigious blogs: LadyTattooers.com and NeedlesandSins.com. Morato’s neo-traditional body of work uses classic tattoo symbolism with a mix of mysticism and spirituality. She currently travels the world sharing her experiences and insights with those she meets.

The elements depicted in From Darkness to Wonderland capture the universe following Morato’s first Brazilian ayahuasca ceremony. Ayahuasca is a brew commonly used in spiritual experiences in the Andean states of South America. Morato’s exposure to the ritual was followed by world travel resulting in self-awareness and the strength to embrace her darkest shadows.

“Face the darkness,” says Morato, “then you can see the beauty … there is no light without darkness, and within darkness is a magical realm.”

From Darkness to Wonderland will inspire you to follow dreams.

Hey Ryan looking to get a comic tattoo in NY any suggestions?

Do you want a suggestion for an artist or for the tattoo? Or both?

I only have one full comic book related tattoo:

Godzilla vs Fin Fang Foom. That pic was taken while it was peeling.

It, and most of my tattoos, were done by the mighty Dave C. Wallin at Eight of Swords Tattoo in Brooklyn. He gets all my recommendations. If you go there, tell him I sent you and that you need to eat tacos with him. We always eat tacos together when I get tattooed there.
