HOW TO ORDER TATTOO DESIGNS FROM THE ARCHIVES OF
MIKE KARMA (TIBETALIA):


PLEASE NOTE THAT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF 2014 I HAVE BEEN SPENDING MOST OF MY DAYS IN MEDITATION RETREAT AND THEREFORE ABLE TO ACCEPT ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF ORDERS FOR NEW DESIGNS.

I CREATED THOUSANDS OF TIBETAN TATTOO DESIGNS OVER THE YEARS AND THIS COLLECTION OF EXISTENT DESIGNS NOW CONSTITUTES "TIBETALIA TATTOO ARCHIVES".

Very few of the archive images are live on the web, since upload etc. would eat away too much of my time. Therefore The Archive is essentially all of the digital flash images on my hard drives.

If you are considering TIBETALIA designs for your next skin-ink or art project, you are welcome to peruse this file containing a small portion of the 1000's of English source text items submitted over the years by tattoo enthusiasts.

Please select one or more English text items (listed below in no particular order), then proceed to the Payment Form to order from my archives the corresponding existent flash images and PDF files containing Tibetan translation-cum-design.

Kindly note that till further notice (due to my retreat) the minimum fee to be paid for even the simplest of designs is 8 EUR. For verification of existent designs (which you have obtained elsewhere) the fee is 4EUR.

Skip to the bottom of this page for the link to the Payment Form and for hints on how to search for specific items within this document quickly and efficiently!

If you arrived here via an external link, please note that my main tattoo page is:

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY RETREAT!

COMMENTS: This was not a semantic conversion, but a phonetic transliteration, i.e. sound-based conversion of names. While it is true that in Tibetan virtually every single grapheme (letter) is a word in its own right (e.g. la=mountain pass etc.), when converting Indo-European names into Tibetan script such common Tibetan letters are generally (and specifically in the case of the names you have submited, too) modified by the addition of special vowel-lengthening, vowel-cancelling, consonant-modifying etc symbols which make it immediately obvious that only the phonetic, and not semantic values of the individual letters in the Tibetanised name are to be taken into account.

Page 1 features precisely the same text (excepting the ornamental flourishes) as you have received already as UCHEN, but is here converted into DRUTSA.
Page 2 has a shortened (contracted) version of the sentence from Page 1,
...
"Contraction" is a very common way of shortening text in some Asian languages, and is done by way of omitting non-essential words, particles, and decoration. Despite the drastic difference in the length we see when comparing Pages 1, 2, and 3, the text in all 3 cases means the same!
---
When selecting the area of the body to be inked with text, in case your artist has little experience with textual designs, it's generally a good idea to allow more space for the words, because this enables the artist to make the fine calligraphic detail more pronounced.
---
Another factor is the amount, or "density", of text: generally, for tattoos, "shorter is better"; the brevity of Tibetan text results in the individual glyphs' being large relative to the overall size (length & width) of the verbiage, and this in turn makes the fine calligraphic detail of the individual graphemes stand out more.

The inscription on the sword actually looks more like "srog gi spu KRI". This may be owing to the photo not being clear; or it could be an alternative archaic spelling for "gri".

Sarah,

An Excerpt From Tibetan Book Of The Dead (Bardo Thodol; The Liberation Through Hearing During The Intermediate State. )

> Alas! When The Uncertain Experiencing Of Reality Is Dawning Upon Me Here,
> With Every Thought Of Fear Or Terror Or Awe For All Appearances Set Aside,
> May I Recognize Whatever [Visions] Appear, As The Reflections Of Mine Own Consciousness;
> May I Know Them To Be Of The Nature Of Apparitions In The Bardo.
> When At This All-Important Moment [Of Opportunity] Of Achieving a Great End,
> May I Not Fear The Bands Of Peaceful And Wrathful [Deities], Mine Own Thought-Forms.'

{
A second example further reinforces the claim that the body is not the direct cause of such mental states by describing how certain persons’ perception of objects that lie outside their bodies can induce intense mental states like fainting spells. In such situations it is beyond dispute that these external objects could be the material cause of a mental reaction. Nevertheless, as the objects of a sensory perception, they can serve as indirect factors that bring about an intense emotional state. Dharmakīrti specifically mentions the sound of a tiger’s roar or the sight of another being’s blood as being capable of causing a timid person to faint, or at the very least to experience strong fear or repulsion. The larger point of this entire series of verses is to demonstrate that mind alone is the material cause of an individual’s mind consciousness, and that, therefore, consciousness does not have to cease with the perishing of the physical body. The argument for the existence of future lives relies on the principle that a preceding moment of consciousness is the sole necessary and sufficient material cause for the arising of a future moment of consciousness. This type of causation is referred to in the commentaries as “a special cause that [by its absence] would prevent [a result from occurring].”

Dear Ceren, for Verification of existent designs (from other Websites) you need to pay 4EUR. But please note that in general, words for family relations (kinship) are not easy in Tibetan, and in particular, the designs on the page in the screenshot you sent me are a bit confused, and the typeface is not very good, so you'd probably be better off sending 8EUR and having it all designed properly,...

ADVICE ON HOW TO SEARCH FOR SPECIFIC ITEMS WITHIN THIS DOCUMENT QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY:

MOST OF YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE A FEW VERBIAGES BOBBING UP AND DOWN IN YOUR MINDS! IF SO, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY FIRST TRY TO LOCATE ANY POTENTIAL WORDINGS HEREIN THAT MAY CONTAIN THE SAME KEYWORDS AS YOUR PREFERRED PHRASES.

1 TO SAVE YOUR EYES, YOU CAN ENLARGE THE TEXT BY HOLDING DOWN [CTRL] AND HITTING [+] A FEW TIMES.

2 ON MOST PLATFORMS YOU CAN START A SEARCH BY HOLDING DOWN [CTRL] AND HITTING [F], THEN TYPING THE MAIN KEYWORD IN THE SEARCH-BOX.

3 IF YOU WISH TO SEARCH USING MULTIPLE KEYWORDS, BE AWARE THAT THE SEARCH VIA [CTRL] + [F] FUNCTION IS DIFFERENT FROM A GOOGLE SEARCH IN THAT EACH CHARACTER IS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT! THUS, IF YOU TYPE E.G. "Always apart together forever" YOU WILL NOT GET ANY RESULT BECAUSE ON THIS PAGE THE PHRASE APPEARS AS "Always apart, together forever." THAT IS TO SAY, THERE IS A COMMA AND SPACE [, ] BETWEEN "apart" AND "together"!

4 IN SOME CASES YOU WILL SEE PARAGRAPHS MARKED "ALT:" OR "KEYWORDS:" AFTER THE MAIN ENTRY. THESE ARE ALTERNATIVE WORDINGS AND TAGS THAT MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO LOCATE SPECIFIC TYPES OF DESIGNS. ("ALTERNATIVE WORDINGS" USUALLY MEANS THAT ALL THE LISTED ALTERNATIVE ENGLISH WORDINGS CORRESPOND TO ONE AND THE SAME TIBETAN WORDING-AS-DESIGN.)

5 NOTE THAT THOUGH PERSONAL NAMES ARE NOT LISTED IN THIS DOCUMENT, I HAVE 100'S OF ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN, FRENCH, DUTCH ETC. NAME-DESIGNS IN MY ARCHIVES!

6 IF YOU SEARCH FOR A KEYWORD AND LOCATE ONE INSTANCE OF IT, DO NOT STOP. SEARCH FOR ALL INSTANCES ON THIS PAGE, WHO KNOWS WHAT YOU MAY FIND!

7 CURLY BRACKETS {...} ARE USED TO MARK VARIOUS COMMENTS OR EXCERPT FROM MY CORRESPONDENCE WITH CLIENTS THAT MAY GIVE YOU ADDITIONAL IDEAS.

8 I CONVERTED SOME OF THE EMAILS THAT ACCOMPANY SPECIFIC DESIGNS INTO WEBPAGES, WHICH MAINLY SERVE TO SHOW HOW THE AMOUNT OF LINGUISTIC INFORMATION VARIES GREATLY FROM DESIGN TO DESIGN. IF INFO IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, LOCATE LINKS TO RELEVANT EMAIL SAMPLES BY SEARCHING FOR CODE "EEE" ("EMAIL EXCHANGE EXAMPLE") ON THIS PAGE.

Kindly note that till further notice (due to my meditation retreat) the minimum fee to be paid for even the simplest of designs is 8EUR. For verification of existent designs (which you have obtained elsewhere) the fee is 4EUR.

If you have located above an item that has exactly the desired wording and a note mentioning the precise layout (horizontal, pseudo-vertical, true-vertical, semi-circular, circular, spiral) of the corresponding design, you can go directly to payment form:

https://tibetalia.com/tibetan-tattoo.htm#tibetan-tattoo-page-QUICK-PAYMENT-PAYPAL-BUTTON-4P-2M2F-0X-1

(wait for page to load in new window)

and send the correct amount of money by altering the drop-down menu values.

Remember, this page contains only a small portion of items i have in my archives, so if you have not found what you want, please enquire about the precise wording you need and the amount to be paid via the contact form just above the PAYMENT FORM (on the same page: https://tibetalia.com/tibetan-tattoo.htm), or EMAIL me directly from here.

Almost all designs are delivered as both image and PDF. Text is vector-defined in the PDF's, i.e. you can use it for high-quality printing, any size! Print even just one word in huge size on T-shirt etc.

This page will be updated occasionally.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CUSTOM!
