Coming back to Salem after a busy weekend of preparing properties for Fall. The reward for getting all of it done is this smile and possibly the most delicious treat of all time....:) #artistsoninstagram #churchhouse #homeowners #greenhouse #starandsnake #klenoresiner #natanalexander #magicalspaces #fall #fire #firewood #warmth #greenspace #houseworkdone #rewards #treats #perfectsmile

This is what delayed gratification looks like. Eighteen months into the greenhouse, nearly five years into the church and house. Building it one magical space at a time, with love and intention. #magicalspaces #retreatcenter #churchhouse #thisoldhouse #artists #arthouse #artstudio #esoteric #esotericlibrary #occult #gothic #gothicstyle #natanalexander #klenoresiner #artistsoninstagram #witchesofinstagram #witchhouse

Putting the final touches on a massive greenhouse project at the place I created with @snakeoclock on Lake Winni in Nh.

The kitchen at Star and Snake. @klenoresiner and @natanink spent a season designing and perfecting every inch to make it the heart of the place. This is the place where meals, laughter, and medicine all happen...:).

Dragon and Sacred Dagger, acrylic on board, 2014. I painted this as a study for a tattoo idea. I ended up tattooing the purba but not the dragon. Looking at this painting I made years ago as i think about thenext dragon tattoo Im about to draw. #keepgrowing #keepworking #stayhumble #throwback #artistsoninstagram #natanink #natanalexander #dragon #tattoopainting #tibetantattoo #tibetandagger #purba #kila #vayrakila #revealedtreasure #tattooartist #bostontattooartist #starandsnake #witchcityink #salem #salemtattooartist #intentionaltattoo #ritualtattoo #tattoohomework

I love this image of @natanink and I tattooing our dear friend @spiritus_arcanum Thinking a lot about ritual tattooing the past few days. For me the act of resacralizing tattoo has so much to do with intention and attention to the magic inherent in the process and much less to do with what the design is. I’m looking forward to continuing to hone my thoughts in preparation for the Blackwork Ritual weekend in October at @starandsnake • • • Photo by Matt Weston #wearyourmagic #tattoomagic #ritualtattoo #sacredmark #intentionaltattoo #magiccircle #spiritusarcanum #natanalexander #snakeoclock #transformation #tattootransformation #starandsnake #artismagic #ladytattooer #qttr #tattooinspiration

Last weekend, hanging with Lon Milo Duquette and Richard Kaczynski at Aleister Crowley’s summer home in NH. Thanks to Colin Campbell for taking the photo and, more importantly, for discovering the location and taking us there! Turns out the place where Crowley had the star sponge vision is just 30 minutes from Star and Snake! #thelema #aleistercrowley #brotherhood #oto #93 #history #hermeticism #family #thelemite #ozfest2018 #lonmiloduquette #richardkaczynski #natanalexander #colincampbell #occult #starspongevision #famousfrogs

Feeling accomplished and proud of what this place has become. Through our Prayer and Work, patience and progress, we have been gradually creating a temple of Art and Magick. #starandsnake #artistretreatcenter #sacredspace #temple #home #churchhouse #artistsoninstagram #thisoldhouse #natanalexander #klenoresiner #starandsnakefamily #artismagick

This weekend at The Star & Snake. From Grandmaster Sabazius X: “The word OZ conveys a number of meanings. Pronounced owes, it means “strength.” Pronounced ezz, it means “a she-goat.” Pronounced ahs, it means “strong, mighty”; but if held a bit longer, it means “to take refuge.” The letters Ayin Zayin add to 77, which number also includes such words as BOH, “prayed”; and MZL, “The Influence from Kether,” more commonly translated as “luck.” If you’re coming this weekend consider yourself lucky.....:). #starandsnake #liberoz #thelema #esoteric #secretsociety #fraternity #freedom #magick #artistretreatcenter #aleistercrowley #thelawofthestrong #natanalexander #whatidoonmydaysoff #wizardsdowizardshit

I was lucky enough to help out this little creature this weekend. She was trapped in the greenhouse at Star and Snake. Sadly holding a wild thing can never last too long.

OM Mandala. The meanings attributed to Om, or AUM include "the universe beyond the sun", or that which is "mysterious and inexhaustible", or "the infinite language, the infinite knowledge", or "essence of breath, life, everything that exists", or that "with which one is liberated" leevetattoo #witchcityink #natanink #tattooart #tattooedyogi #yogini #symbols #aum #om #mandalatattoo #yoga #yogic #veda #ancientwisdom #meaningfultattoos #wearyourmagick #starandsnake #artistsoninstagram #natanalexander #tattooartist #mindfulness #personalempowerment #growth #surrender

Not the greatest pic, still wanted to share as I am excited to say that things are finally moving forward on my collaborative project with @natanink. Depicted is the Southern Luminary, one of four 5 foot panels combining my painting work with illuminated, etched glass by Natan. The work explores the mysteries of those who guard the elemental quarters. Final form will be an immersive installation. • • • #starandsnake #oilpainting #occultart #artchurch #artismagic #elementoffire #etchedglass #glassart #collaborativeartists #illumination #mixedmedia #installation #natanalexander #klenoresiner

Last sheet in the alchemical series, the Hidden Stone, the cipher of which is V.I.T.R.I.O.L. Concealed in the ART card, ATU XIV, is the alchemical formula for the balancing and exchange of energies, prolonging life, manifesting desires, and generally being awesome....:) #tattoodesign #tattooflash #alchemy #vitriol #babalon #alchemytattoo #salem #hermaphrodite #transformation #symbolism #metaphor #jungianarchetypes #esotericart #snakes #93 #thelema #hermetic #hermeticart #alchemytattoo #witchcityink #natanalexander #natanink #salemmassachusetts

Salveo, “Be Well”. A very special magickal tattoo for a Dr. friend of mine. I combined the merkaba, ouroboros, and heart and throat chakra lotus flowers to create a vehicle for the transmission of love and healing, fitting to the profession he has dedicated his life to. #natanink #witchcityink #alchemytattoo #magicaltattoo #oroboros #merkaba #merkabatattoo #healing #healingart #sacredgeometry #sacredgeometrytattoo #heartchakra #intentionalliving #tattoos #blackworktattoo #tattoomagick #natanalexander

The monk Kukai brought the Bonji Sidham magical script to Japan in 805. His study of the esoteric Mahavairocana Tantra brought a new branch of ancient magic to Buddhism in the years that followed, creating the esoteric schools of Shingon and Tendai. At the heart of the mandala is the void, entered by total exhaustion and complete sincere effort. Into that space something different steps. #backpiecetattoo #wip #witchcityink #inprogress #esoteric #occult #secret #hiddenwisdom #salem #salemtattooartist #natanalexander #natanink #mandalatattoo #monk #spiritual #tattoos

Here we see Master Ajarn Ohr of @bangkokinkthaitattooworldtours performing traditional Thai hand-poked tattooing (known as Sak Yant) on Witch City Ink owner and artist @natanink at the @bostontattoocon last month. It’s a very beautiful ceremonial process. We are extremely pleased to welcome the Master as a special Guest Artist in our shop this September, right before the @masstattoocon! ❤️ . . . #natanalexander #witchcityink #salemma #bostontattooconvention #bangkokink #sakyant #sakyanttattoo #traditionalthaitattoo
