Ouroboros by Chakra-San Ouroboros by Chakra-San
This is a tattoo design of the Ouroboros. i did for somebody, intended to be put on the calf.

The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end.

Medium: Mechanical Pencil

The scan isn't so fantastic i must say, will try and upload a better one at some point.

I like it, but having the tail hanging out the mouth on the other side I feel that the Ouroborros is only biting the tail instead of eating it. But I really do like it.

yeah, it's an ancient symbol either in the form of a circle or the figure of 8. I dig the concept of it :)
