Sacred Tattoos:

More than Skin Deep

What is a Tattoo Design Consultation?

What You Can Expect From the Process of Sacred Tattoo Designing With Tania Marie, From the Artist Herself:


Tania Marie: “I want to share a recurring theme that comes up in my sacred tattoo design consultations and creations so that others realize that this is not a simple tell me what you want, I draw it process. This process of sacred tattoo designing is a very intense, intimate and involved journey that we share. It is like receiving a consolidated coaching session compressed in the now, but spanning perhaps years, a lifetime or lifetimes of focuses for you, all done energetically through symbolism specific to your needs and in support of the healing journey you are on. These sacred tattoo designs help alter your DNA code to match with its vibration. Many times these designs are steps ahead of where you are, but they hold the space for you to grow and move into, and will support you through your walk of life. For me, it's like doing shaman healing and intuitive work when I create a supportive piece - a whole journey of integrative healing, as there is much to process and embrace. It is as potently intense for me, as it is for my clients. It is an honor to be able to do this sacred work that is my passion.


I launched my book, “Spiritual Skin,” which had been nudging me for a few years, as I wanted to help others to understand this sacred process and how tattoos were much more than meets the eye.


The design process, including consulting, is $175/hour. 

I require a one hour deposit upfront, as all tattoos take at least one hour, and the balance is due upon our agreement of its closure. 

There is a waiting list for sacred tattoo designs and due to increased volume and time involved in each piece, it's become necessary to limit the number of new clients I can take each month, in addition to current clients. This also helps me to be able to turn work around more efficiently.

That said, I can only take on 6 new clients per month alongside the current waiting list. 

When you place your deposit to hold a space, I will be contacting you with a scheduled week on the calendar that we'll be co-creating your design in. 

The way to hold your spot on the list is to provide the 1 hour deposit upfront, as I create the designs in the order I receive them.

Design work books up quickly, so this is the way to get on the design schedule.

If you have a rush job that must take place in a certain time-frame, contact me to discuss details and to see if I am capable of working off-hours to assist that, which would equate to a higher rate fee, reflectively.

To embark on this journey as a co-creative partner with me, please make your deposit here and message me at tania@spiritualskin.com and we'll set the energy in motion:

I only charge for the actual design time, meaning pencil to paper time. The consulting (usually done through extensive emails), research, meditation, and any extra goodies I add to the process are not part of the hourly. These are just the gifts I add to the very intensive journey. The process of designing is a very intricate, deep, sacred, detailed, time and committed dedication that I take seriously and put my heart and soul into to ensure the right energy and detail that reflects your own heart. Sometimes I am creating out of thin air if a client doesn’t know exactly what they want, and only shares essence qualities, so I then need to figure out how that translates. This sometimes comes exactly right the first time and other times, it comes in stages, as it depends on how clear the energy is that is being channeled. Sometimes it takes time to go deeper and access that pearl that is hidden. It is quite the spiritual process and the more we unravel and dig deeper, the more I uncover the truth below the surface and get through the layers.


Usually tattoos run 2-5 hours, on average, to design from my experience. 5+ hours for very large pieces. Intricacy, detail and size will be the deciding factors. Whenever dealing with symmetry it can be a bit more complex and timely as well, so this all is taken into account when estimating time frames. I can usually give close guesstimates, but they can run shorter or a little longer. It is most important we get it right than to rush a process, however, I am mindful of people’s budgets and will work with what you can afford in terms of staying within a timeframe you need.


Consulting back and forth is no extra charge, nor is the meditating time I do to tune in and receive. I clock my work from start to finish. After we agree, I will begin the design and then once done, email the scanned design to you to see what you feel. 9 times out of 10 we get it the first time, but it is not unusual to have a couple tweaks and goes at it. It’s important to get things just right. 

I don’t charge for a couple of minutes of changes, but if it is more involved than a few minutes of change, or constitutes a redo, then I charge the same hourly rate. Of course if it’s a partial hour then I charge accordingly, as that equates from the normal hourly rate.


The design is done in black and grays, meaning pencil, as it is up to your tattoo artist and you to incorporate colors you may desire. This is just the design template that they will use to copy and place on the transfer sheet to your skin, of which they can easily up and down the size on their copy machine if you end up wanting it sized differently.

Stand-alone consultations are also available so you know what to have your tattoo artist create for you. It's such an honor to see these designs infused with the love and artistry of the tattoo artists that co-create as part of the trinity of our collective collaboration.

If you are looking to manifest the perfect tattoo that will empower your life, this is something that I specialize in. I provide assistance with zeroing in on the energy and specific design elements, placement, images, flow, etc., for your sacred tattoo, that would be most resonating and supportive for your personal journey and what you are wanting to create in your life. 

All services, including consultations or design consultations, are done via email. I have clients around the world that I support this way. 

The rate for email consulting is:

$55 per email including response

Packages are also available:

$125 per 3 emails including responses ($40 discount)

$195 per 5 emails including responses ($80 discount)

The whole process is a magical one and I’m constantly amazed at how synchronously and divinely it always unfolds. It’s like being a catalyst or channel to help bring forth the visions my clients have in manifested form and in so doing, creating magical gateways or portals in a sort of alchemical process.


I am grateful for the opportunity to assist you with your own 'spiritual skin' and welcome any inquiries you may have.”

About the Sacred Journey of Spiritual Skin Tattoos with Tania Marie:

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.

In peace and love,
Mari Braveheart-Dances


“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!"

“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.”

"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..."

"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,"
