Words From Some Of Tania Marie's Design Clients:


“I struggle with finding words to describe the shifts that have occurred since I received the design. It has been such a beautiful vibration with synchronicities galore! I am writing to tell you excitedly that I had my first ink session last night. My experience was remarkable. I was nervous and uncomfortable when I first arrived. Then I sat in the chair turned on my iPod and entered a very deep meditative state listening to a mantra. My eyes were closed and as the design took shape I noticed the moment when my cellular structure recognized it. I felt the design melding with my intention of transformation and spiritual commitment and vibrating into my genetic programming. I was connected to a higher plane of creative love and Source energy and could also feel the echoes from the crystalline grid below me under that chair. I felt like a channel that was open to allow an overlay of some of the more anxious nervous energy that was there with love and calm from Source. It was a near out-of-body experience just with this small piece and I am so excited for the next one! Thank you for your work, dedication and light!” ~Heidi L., Colorado


“I am in awe of you! I waited until the mood was set to unveil this miraculous creation. I sat with my sister and read the description with eager anticipation of seeing the design for the first time. You have truly captured me. Things I wanted to mention but didn't explain were transferred into the design. I could go on all night. I couldn't be happier. I am processing it as I sit here and I constantly stare at it finding different images each time. Ironically it is now 12:12. What better message coming through than this? It is so unique and gives me such freedom of expression that emanates from my soul. THANK YOU SO MUCH! You have such an amazing talent/gift and you bring so much positive energy to those you touch. Bless you and may Angels surround you always! Much love, gratitude, and blessings.” ~Kimberly M., New Jersey


“After I got the tattoo you designed on my skin it has opened a LOT of healing, I tell you! It's absolutely amazing! Thank you SO much for this sacred design you created for/with me. I wanted to tell you how strong I feel the changes that are happening since getting it done last Friday. It's unbelievable for me. I welcome this experience and cherish it. The tattoo feels to already be balancing a LOT. It is funny how I feel soooo extra sensitive since last Friday and getting the tattoo on my skin. This wonderful energy has lifted me. I feel so good and in touch with my inner core. I feel my needs and my limits, and also aware of my improvement... Humility, Strength and Courage! Thanks again, dear Tania, for all the Love, the Light, the Inspiration and the Healing you brought to my life. I want to 'share the love' now!” ~France T., Longueuil, Quebec


“Wow I LOVE it. So much detail and symbolism and I love the softer feel and flow. I'm so happy with it. Everything you put into it has meaning in my life and where I am going and where I have been, wow so happy. It was just like Christmas morning, I was in my pjs and having a coffee when I opened your email and was blown away with the design. I love the softness you put into the design. I have changed a lot in my life and have become a way softer person inside and I like how you know about the blossoms representing the shortness and beauty of this life and I have been thinking for a while about doing a Buddha with a third eye for a while so for you to include that is so cool. And then the sacred geometry including the Merkaba, which I have been wanting to also have tattooed on me and the Flower of Life. You just have hit on so many things that we both know that only synchronicity can bring. You have a really cool way of reaching out and touching other old souls. Again I'm so happy with the design and I wouldn't be surprised if I ask you to design me another very one of a kind tattoo - a very personal one for me. Again thank you for the awesome experience and I can't wait for the next one!” ~Chad D., British Columbia, Canada

"I read your book and I have to say, I am not a reader, I buy a lot of books that I read half way and then give up. Your book is the only book that I have ever read every page of willingly. I’m writing to you in regards to a tattoo I would like you to design. I might actually want a few or just one big one. I’ve tried to meditate on it, but I can’t seem to quiet my mind completely. Asking you for your assistance just felt like the right thing to do. I have a Chakra book, a book on Egyptian yoga, I have audio books about the Law of Attraction, I have audio meditation guides that have been very helpful. I have books on angels (I love my angels), and I collect stones to try to meditate with them. I feel like I’m on the right path, but I’m just not getting something. Your book helped me understand a lot of what I have been reading about and listening to, more than everything I’ve been reading or listening to has. This is why I’m reaching out to you! Thank you for your time!” ~Isabel Corrochado, Columbia, South Carolina

"Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I’m lost for any words to describe how I feel … The tattoo design you created for me is just so breathtaking. I love it so much…so much. Wow! It blows my mind!! And the way you have described the flow of the work gives me such goosebumps. I feel so connected to it, to you, to your words, to the divine energy pouring in right now. This process has been one big heart expansion for me. I don’t know how to thank you enough. Thank you for sharing you, your beautiful soul, your passion, your artwork, your all. I feel so overwhelmed right now. I’m in deep gratitude for your love. All my love … all of it and more. Thank you Thank you Thank you xxx” ~Ame Delves, Sydney, Australia, Entertainment Engineer & Dance Choreographer

"About the design-wow!! I’m struggling for words, every time I look at it, I feel like a new layer of meaning is revealed-amazing! You were spot on about a divine feminine energy being better for balance, it was something I hadn’t considered but despite being female I have always tended to have an imbalance towards the divine masculine so this is truly perfect and I’m so glad you picked up on it. You even picked up on my natural tendency to favour control and planning, over gracefully going with the flow, which is something I’ve been working on and its fantastic to have a boost towards that process included in this design. I actually felt very connected to the design process while it occurred, I had several dreams relating to tattoos and I had briefly picked up on what looked like an ‘s’ shape in my mind, which of course is included in the design. I also intuitively knew that two eyes looking out would reveal themselves, but I didn’t see it coming in the form of an owl, but again it makes perfect sense that it would be a guide of mine and of course, the Athena connection. I’m so happy to have a tattoo that will truly enrich my life, and it is so empowering – I am SO grateful for all your hard work! You have such a gift to be able to create art that has so much purpose and potency. I’m already excited about my next tattoo, because as long as you continue to do sacred tattoo designing I know I’ll be back for more!” ~Anonymous, Muscat, Oman

“Tania! I don't know what to say! A few @%$# words may  have come out of my mouth when I saw the drawing. I cannot believe how beautiful and intricate it is.  I was overwhelmed trying to take it in at once. There is so much in it that I cannot wait to learn about. It is so powerful! Also, I definitely want to stay in touch. I shared your blog post about the design on Facebook with my friends. I was drawn to you since I first saw your tattoos of the Inca truths.  Then finally I was able to connect with you for my own sacred tattoo. You have been a huge part of my journey and would love to keep you a part of it somehow. I guess you will always be a part of it especially when I get the tattoo permanently on my forearms. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for you! Your light, honesty, heart, art, encouragement… so many things. Thank you!” ~Chris O., Columbia, Missouri 

"To me, getting tattoos has always been about the spiritual meaning of them.  I would get to a point in my life when I would want to have a design that would signify an important accomplishment or change in my life. I have searched through many different means, ways to transform my life.  I have never experienced anything as powerful and life-altering in a positive way as the experience of tattoos as Sacred and Spiritual. I began to try to find out if anyone else had these same experiences, if anyone else cared about the Sacred and Spiritual Energetic shifts that can occur with Tattoos.  In my searching, I found Tania Marie who wrote a beautiful book called Spiritual Skin – Sacred Tattoos More Than Skin Deep.  I was drawn to her book by the title, and it enhanced my experience even more. Eventually, I was compelled to email Tania and discuss the possibility of having her work with me to design some Sacred Tattoos for me. It is almost impossible to put into words what this experience has meant and continues to mean to me in my personal life.  The process of co-creating with Tania, Sacred Skin that is meaningful and life-changing, is so much more than just designing a beautiful tattoo.  So much more than mere ink on skin.  Any good artist can create a beautiful design.  But I know of no one who does the kind of work that Tania does. Working with Tania is like working with someone on a different plane – someone who takes what you say about who you are, and listens to the energy behind your words.  Tania has the beautiful ability and gift of being able to read a client’s energy and also to read the energy that is coming through from the universe that is most needed for the journey of wholeness to be made complete in the sacred tattoo design. My heart and soul trusts this woman with complete openness and faith in her incredible ability to truly listen.  This is a rare, rare gift, and it shows in the designs she creates for me. My life has changed, and continues to change, in miraculous ways due to the Spiritual Skin designed by Tania Marie especially for me.  These Sacred Designs are so much more than beautiful ink on skin – they truly are portals to different depths of experience of the fullness and wholeness of life. I am blessed and honored beyond measure to be a part of such a Sacred and Transformative Process – working with this beautiful human being to bring in the healing designs that are what I need at that time. May you be blessed with your choice to work with this truly gifted and spiritual woman.  You will never regret one second of this choice.” ~Mari Braveheart-Dances, Athens, GA

“The tattoo is fantastic. I love it. You read my mind. I just got out of the bush to check my mails and it was the first one. You captured my emotions and heart. Thank you so so much. Mama Africa is smiling at you. Riaan is with me at the moment, he loves it too. We have decided. That if you want to see real Africa you have to visit us in Liberia. Stay safe.” ~Patrick McManus, Africa

“I am moved to tears... So beautiful I can't even really process how much.. Resonates on so many levels. You have a beautiful gift and I can't wait to have this inked on my skin!!! It is so perfect on so many layers and on what has been unfolding in my life...I am blown away..well not really because I know how gifted you are, but really and truly it is so touching and so perfect all of the symbolism...I am a little lost for words...best birthday present ever. Much much love and gratitude!”  ~Hillary Schneider, British Columbia, Canada

“OMG OMG OMG!!! This is the MOST BEAUTIFUL design imaginable. The level of detail is absolutely breathtaking, and the symbolism is incredible. This is more than I ever imagined. Oh my God, I am speechless with wonder and gratitude to you. Every time I look at her, something new comes to my attention... details within details... so incredibly beautiful, and powerful, and grounded, and ethereal, and independent, and shy, and gentle and strong ALL at the same time...Tania, the design is just mesmerizing -- it is absolutely beautiful... I can't look at it enough.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, and bless you for her! There is so so so much I want to write, but I just don't have the words. I can't look at my lady enough, and I can't thank you enough, and I can't even begin to describe what an enormous privilege and a pleasure and an honor it has been to share this process with you. God bless you for your talents and your energy and your passion and your art and for YOU!! I've been sitting with her next to me and her compassion and unique energy are already streaming to me in wave upon wave! I can't wait to merge with her!!! I LOVE her!!!!” ~Anika, Chicago

"Tania Marie is so amazing in creating tattoo designs through getting to know me spiritually, emotionally, and intuitively. I love this! I look forward to all the reminders embedded in this piece, as they are all pieces of me…so special! You do amazing work Tania, and your power and beauty should be shared with others.  I have so enjoyed this process, I truly feel I was led to you and your gift.  I deeply appreciate what you have given me….depths of my Self! Thank you so much Tania.  I look forward to continuing our connection and reading your thoughts and words through your posts and blog.  And perhaps you will do more designs for me in my future!  Life is an incredible journey, and I find tattoos to be an artful depiction and communication of that journey, to share with myself and others.” ~Sara Sallese, Massachusetts

“I have been 'sitting' with the design in all its representation. I love it. It speaks to me on so many levels. It weaves magic endlessly, deeply influencing. So, sincere and absolute gratitude. Thank you so much for aligning with your talent, passion and dedication, and uniting with me in this unfoldment. You are so beautiful! I feel like I have made a dear friend through this process.” ~Latimah Sloan, Melbourne, Australia

“I've been itching to reply to you all day. I absolutely LOVE your design. It resonates with me in the most deepest of levels and so much more than that. I feel all that it symbolizes and all that it allows and reminds me to be. Creation from within the soul and even deeper, the core of the soul. Thank you thank you thank you! It feels so powerful, yet embodies so much grace. I love the whole design, the lotus and all that it symbolizes, how the leaves of the lotus forms the Om (this symbolism of the Divine being an integration of the Cosmos and the Earth, as well as a deep connection with nature) and cradles the Seed of Life (the inspiration to create life exactly how we wish it to be); the soul. It feels so Divine, wholesome, infinite and inspired. Full of heart and soul. You have mirrored my soul in its purest of forms and I am so grateful to you for it. Thank you so much for doing what you do and all that you do. You are truly gifted and I am so blessed to have had you part of my journey. I will be telling all about you and the wonderful spiritual, sacred art you create. I cannot stop staring at it.” ~Sana

"Can I just say I have tears, it is so beautiful and I am so amazed at what my energy brought forward to you, it just shows me that the beauty inside me is real and not in my head and that I need to trust myself more and what I know to be true is stunning Tania..you are so very gifted and lucky to have the gift to do this (still crying). I am honored to have been blessed with finding you and look forward to having it placed in its rightful place on my body!!” ~Yasmin Lageyre, Florida
"I was drawn to Tania because of her BEautiful loving Spirit. As I learned more about her by witnessing the many innate talents she so eloquently expresses, my soul knew there is something valuable to connect with here. I had a few symbols in mind of what I would like in a tattoo. With these symbols and a heartfelt dialogue with Tania…she went to work! The moment I saw this amazing image she had created for me…my heart SANK and healing tears of Joy and Love streamed down my face. Soon after I caught my second wind to continue traveling down this awesome road of transformation I long for! Thank you from the depths of my heart Tania for sharing yours…not only with me…but the world.” ~Julie Watts, Pahoa, Hawaii, Massage Therapist

"Dear Tania, I don’t even know where to begin….It is BEYOND BEYOND ANYTHING I could have imagined. Words really cannot express….I looked at the illustration for a long long time and I was like “Wow….That’s me. Here I am.” And I say that with so much pride and love. It feels like I am complete…like the closing of a circle in some way……I keep looking at it and I can’t believe that I will get to travel the glorious road ahead wearing something this BEAUTIFUL, this HEARTFELT…this AHHH-MAZING…. AND with a bird of paradise in it no less….my FAVORITE flower and I didn’t even tell you but there it was. Perfect. Just perfect. I entrusted a part of my soul to you and you turned it into the most beautiful thing I could have ever imagined EVER….THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU…..DIVINE. DIVINE. DIVINE. DIVINE. My gratitude for you overflows like a cup full of water…” ~Raquel Griffin, Creative Director, Fashion Stylist, Fine Art Photographer 

"What a true blessing it has been to get my Sacred Tattoo designed by Tania. My gratitude cannot be described with words. I have searched for years for the perfect design, but never found anything close to what I was searching for, needed, or imagined. Yet, when Tania completed my design, it was exactly what I was seeking and needed. Honestly, I’m not surprised at the perfection. The energy and consulting invested throughout the creation process was like no other I’ve seen or heard of; but exactly what I needed. It’s no wonder my design came out perfectly the first time. I even had a chance to learn about the healing aspects of tattoos which was new to me, but now makes so much sense. On top of everything else she gave me the opportunity to donate and sponsor her in a very special cause for animals which is a true blessing.  I’m honored to be forever connected in such a special way to Tania through her creation. Forever Humbly Grateful” ~Venus Banguela, New York, New York, Holistic Health Coach and Certified Yoga Teacher www.infinitivewellness.com 

"I would HIGHLY encourage you to consult with Tania for your next tattoo. She is immeasurably tuned in and talented in this arena. WOW! The direction my sacred art is going is inspiring me–it’s off the charts. And the portals it will open on my body? Exciting! Check out her website. She is so very generous and thorough. The storytelling art will come back to life through this whole gift of sacred art/spiritual skin…and I am deeply grateful to Tania for this unfolding! Her teachings are so strong, and yet come to us in this sweet feminine current. Hard to describe. Kind of like opening a door without any harsh signs or shoves. Pure grace.” ~Gaile Lynn, Haiku, Hawaii www.gailelynn.com

"Woooooow! Tania!!! This is so beautiful and powerful!!!!!!! I love it!! I am so excited and happy with it!! There is, indeed, much more meaning to this wonderful design than I expected... It means soooooooo much to me, words are not enough...!!! But I feel a lot!!!!!!! And it's delightful! Full of Love, of Light... Soooooo healing, dear!!!!! I love you Tania! And your wonderful work, of course!!" ~France T., Longueuil, Quebec


“Dearest Tania, I absolutely am in love with your design and all that it represents.  I am at a loss for words right now.  You put so much into it, and I've read your sharing on its symbolism a number of times now and still will read it many more times. I am thrilled with it. Absolutely thrilled, I will be staring at this for awhile! It’s so interesting the timing of all this, when you began, what I was going through in my experience, and what you were experiencing, as well as the channeling all brought this to life. I am in awe, in a very peaceful and grounding way.  I couldn’t have pictured a better design. I love you bunches. Such a talented and dear soul you are.” ~Dawn Vierra, Arizona, Reiki Master Teacher & Shaman, www.ReikiDawn.wordpress.com


“I really love it. I'm really getting excited now. Must get this on my body.” ~Eric H., New Jersey
