A cool tattoo of one of my favourite Teddy Bear images.

"My very first tattoo! My boyfriend showed me a picture he found online of “Why you should always sleep with a teddybear”. I fell in love with it immediately, and knew it needed to be put on my body. However, I wanted to tweak it to make it personal. When I was about 14, I fell into a really deep depression and started seeing shadows. It would get especially bad as I was laying in bed, in the dark, at night. I wanted the monster in my tattoo to symbolize the shadows that I always saw. In a way, my tattoo keeps me protected from the shadows that I still see. My teddybear is forever tattooed on my body to keep me safe. I had it done by Lauren McKenzie at Bound By Design in Denver, Colorado. She did such an amazing job! And it only took a little over an hour."

It's a re interpretation of this amazing image by Begemott

It's available to buy as a print from his deviantART page

Materialises out of thin air.
At first sight quite comical looking, rather like a demented dancing evil star fish. 
This volatile little night terror is a constantly fragmenting form of pure nagging doubt. 
Despite struggling to maintain the Vitruvian form it will keep fluctuating and falling apart. 
Constantly folding back in upon itself it creates a vortex which drags it's victim stumbling into an abyss of paranoia, distrust and self loathing, leaving them enclosed in a cracked and fearful mirror world.

ErSatz. As shown in a grimoire held by the archival library of The Teddy Bear Army.

This has until recently been a common low level nightmare. It's fragile form left it very venerable to attack from claws and thus it was easy to defeat. 
Previously many humans were often able to face this one down themselves in the dream time without the need for our intervention.
This is becoming less and less the case and proportionately it has been dramatically increasing in both numbers and strength becoming an increasing menace.

We have the situation well under control at present and are looking into strategies to ultimately overcome the threat.

Regimental tattoo.

Machine free tattoo made up from dots poked in by hand. The ink is pushed into the skin one dot at a time using the same single use sterile needles which are run in machines attached to a metal bar or wooden stick. Different needle groupings can be utilised to vary the size and shape of the mark left.
Many people my self included find this to be a considerably less painful way to get tattooed.

This can be done outside in the woods by an experienced operator like myself safely and sterilely.
