: Psico Design ep. 39 : PATTERN

PATTERN, the hidden meaning in a tattoo 

 

in this short article of the section “PSICO DESIGN – the psychology of the drawings” we address the meaning and symbolism of the PATTERN from a mythical or primordial point of view, to apply it in the portrayal of the tattoo

 

Anyway, we speak of fairytales that make us dream, there’s no time for science here

 

The prefrontal cortex has no ground here, we move within the emotions of the limbic brain or the instinct of the reptilian brain 

 

I love this geometry because it speaks of free will…

 

looking at it at a first impact we see CUBES, solid cubes that make us think of a block, an obstacle, something heavy, an impediment

 

many cubes that follow each other and rise above each other as steps to do, blocks to overcome, obstacles on your path 

 

3D cubes create a BLOCK effect

 

but here the lines of the cubes are not united, there is that small empty space that breaks the link and gives the possibility to our eye to see flowers, instead of cubes

 

that small void may be the center of a flower and around them we find its unfolded petals 

 

a flower, a rebirth, an opportunity, the beginning of a new life

 

that void that makes the cube “ambiguous” gives the brain the possibility to see two different things in that image:

 

The CUBES linked to an idea of pessimism
A FLOWER as a symbol of a new opportunity

 

this free will gives us the chance to take a bad situation, such as a time of crisis and turn it into an opportunity

 

to find the hidden collateral beauty in everything

 

that’s what I’m looking for

 

I have often used this geometry for my customers that have turned their life upside down in a positive way, after a negative event, declaring that if it had not been for that terrible event he would have never discovered the beautiful new sides of himself

 

or often after a serious illness, for example or a traumatic divorce or the tragic death of someone

 

or in deep crisis situations that have become the beginning of a new awareness that has improved their life ^_^

 

with love,
