Otte Timar's Tattoos
Is it up to us to decide what principles we choose to guide us in our lives, or is all this coded in our genes? Is this a skill we have from the day of our conception? And is this where our world view that later controls our actions and beliefs stems from?
The direction in which our interests develop is, to some extent, undoubtedly predestined. which slice of the cake of life we choose for our vocation will move us forward on our path to gain the experience we need for our personal growth.
The goal is the same, it is only the roads that take you there that vary. Whether you are a manual worker, an engineer with a degree or a devoted tattoo artist, any path can take you to the gate of perfection, but you can only gain personal experience on the path you have chosen, which you can then use to achieve personal growth.
Otte Timár turned to tattooing two decades ago on the advice of someone close to him, and it was with this decision that he determined the areas from which he would gain experience throughout his life...
The alchemist’s goal is the transfiguration of matter. Rudolf Steiner says it is not what you paint that is important, but what you think of during the creative process; what you feel as the painting is emerging on your canvas. Over the years, tattooing has become a sort of magical practice for me. On the physical level, ink enters the skin, and on the mental level, an idea is conceived. For this you need a kind of connection. This originates from the world above and is manifested as we connect to our clients mentally. We try to map their ideas and world views in a two-dimensional, graphic form.
