Power of all the Sun raining down to everyone on this day. For the #SUMMERSOLSTICE , I intended to give my deepest sacrifice thus far in my life to the energies of infinite love and radiance, K'in or the sun. I prepared with @balam_tepeyotl over six months for this day. Drenched in the heat of the longest day, we journied for 12 hours to the ceremony's completion. This was my ofrenda to my ancestors, the energies I hold in reverence, and my higher self, the self that will bear these marks until death.
What these symbols are ☀️ both the #MAYAN and the #KHEMETIC people knew of the power of the sun and held it in high reverence as a giver of life. Depicted are the #PYRAMIDATGIZA on my left forearm at the base of the great #SCARAB who symbolized the movement of the sun through the day, completed with the pyramid's internal tunnel system whose openings align with the stars on #ORIONSBELT and various others. On my right arm, #CHICHENITZA a place whose mystery and energetic intuneness inspired me to sketch these drawings, above it is the mayan #HEIROGLYPH for the sun, or K'in in #NAHUATL surrounded by the mayan calendars' four cardinal points and below, the symbols for earth and moon.
I give great reverence to the keepers of these mysteries and feel their blood with me. I intend my ofrenda be received fully in the presence of #XOCHIPILI at #BALAMTATTOOSTUDIO ☄ Blissed to have been privileged with his art and his wisdom. Tlazohcamati, brother @balam_tepeyotl
