Alchemy by Uchiha-Kaiisa Alchemy by Uchiha-Kaiisa
This is a blueprint I made for my tattoo, I'm getting it on my palm if I can find a tattooist that will do it there.

The Alchemy symbols all represent different things from seasons to planets.

The one in the center means "purification" because I hope to be purified so I can be a healthy, normal teen.

The one on the far left means "still" as "isa" in my name is a rune that means "stand still".

The one on the far right; "decompose" because I have always found beauty in death as well as life (life being represented by the whole Alchemy ring)

and the one at the top; "silver" because I have always been fascinated by silver and also because it's my favorite metal... METAL! I love Metal... >.>

a neat idea and a nice design but i agree with the comment below, it seems way too technical for such a small area. I've had similar experience trying to get intricate pieces on small places on my body but it just makes their job alot harder and easier to mess up (Maybe get a tattooist to work on the design with you to come to a compromise that fits with your hand shape better and won't be rediculously hard to create).

Also i'm a metal fan too ^_^ Mercury is my preffered metal of choice in the alchemical sprectum, it links with me on so many levels it's unreal.

All in all, it's a pretty design. I love alchemical symbols myself, but I think this is a little too complex for what your planning.

That's a little much for your hand. (o_o) I would keep the purification symbol in the center, as well as the elemental triangles. But I would take out the seasonal symbols and instead transpose the elements onto the symbol for the year.

And if it's a tattoo going on your own skin, I think your name is kind of redundant too, in terms of magical potency.

Sounds pretty cool to me, the palm is an unusual place to put it.

Yeah I thought so too when I went in to piercing place and saw a guy in there with the swastika (original Buddhist symbol) tattooed on his palms in white ink.

I found it quite intriguing and thought I could fiddle around with a few of my own designs :P
