This network has been created to hold space for those who see body ornamentation as a revolutionary act of self love & empowerment. We are here to explore the processes, history & result of bearing tattoos, piercings or scarification for spiritual meaning. Those interested in esoterica, witchcraft, energy healing, body art, artistic expression, mental health & liberation would enjoy this group!
Ink Witches of Philly has been created as a direct response to oppressive, “boy’s club,” or abusive tattoo industry environments. Our focus instead is of redefining & revolutionizing our body positivity, vocality, connection to nature, trauma recovery, decolonialism, as well as honoring the adorned communities who have come before us. The intention of meeting is to learn, share, & expand how we relate to this craft.
Together, we will share discussions, create designs (sigils), research the roots of body art, do rituals & collaborate on projects. Tattoo artists, lovers, collectors, or anyone aligned to the goal of the group are welcome to attend. There will be a free meeting for members every month, while specialty events may be by donation.
Our first meeting! I’m excited to connect with you all & enter creation space. Let’s make some magick.
