There once was a serpent who only traveled in one direction. Always forward, never backward.
Until one day, the serpent came upon a Demon.
The Demon cursed the serpent, driving him insane, causing him to eat his own tail.
The serpent was blind.
But a few, those who were seers, knew the serpent's true path, so they created a weapon.
A weapon to destroy the Demon.
They hid the weapon in the snake's den, where he waited for his madness to end.
But it never did. For the seers discovered that the only one who could wield the weapon was the Demon itself.
And so the serpent was doomed to circle in madness...forever.
I’ve actually wanted a tattoo since I was a teenager, but couldn’t decide on what. When I did over a year ago, it was an ouroboros (tail devourer) on my arm. It was a sign of continuity, of creation out of destruction, a fusion of opposites. Not to mention an obscure Doctor Who reference. I’d looked for awhile for an artist whose work I liked. When @rachel.welsby posted her’s a few days ago, I knew immediately that I’d found what I’d been looking for. Rachel is the absolute best, and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. #ouroboros#rachelwelsby#thegirlwiththeouroborostattoo
