"Spiritual Skin is a beautifully put together ebook which perfectly mirrors my own feelings about tattooing and its sacred symbolism in my life. Tattoos for me are another way to express my own unique creativity and spirituality. Just like music and food, they are a way to take an invisible energetic impulse sensed on other realms and translate it into something materially substantive and appreciable on the physical realm. If you are considering a tattoo, or are already captivated by your own tattoos, reading Tania's book will help you consolidate your ideas and validate your feelings."

"Tania Marie brings an intriguing and profound perspective on spiritual tattoos. Spiritual Skin is radiant with her experiences, compassion, and knowledge. This book is integrated with captivating quotes and beautiful color photographs, but the chapter on Tania, herself, is by far the most fascinating. This page-turner is mandatory for anyone considering body art!"

"This extraordinary book arrived in my life in a most synchronistic way: On the very day I was headed to the tattoo parlor for a consultation! Upon reading the book, not only did it deepen my connection to this most sacred art form, but it also deepened my connection to the sacred ways of life. Tania Marie has clearly been a woman on the path, and her depth and wisdom permeate the pages. It's such a flowing and easy read, combined with lovely photographs of some of the best tattoos I've ever seen--especially Tania's. I was inspired by the essence of this book. One never knows from where they will receive some profound guidance and insight, and I dare say this book about sacred tattoos will provide something surprisingly beautiful to each and every reader.
A friend of mine ordered this book yesterday for her niece. Interestingly, her niece is a tattoo aficionado, and at the same time, a struggling youth who is grappling with spiritual life. I truly believe that this book will capture her listening because of the topic of tattoos, and at the same time, lead her seamlessly into a deeper connection with the divine. This book reads like a spiritual masterpiece. Clearly Tania Marie is deeply in tune with Spirit/energy. It's gorgeous. Namaste."
"Much more than a Tattoo ebook, a must read for anyone:
Thinking about your first tattoo? Touch-ups? Tattoo removal? Body canvas?
This spiritual pathfinder brings you closer to your true home's layers...
Tania Marie goes above and beyond the skin, bringing spiritual awareness to anyone with easy and mega-fun reading. Such good feelings of well being after every paragraph! Helping readers happily review our busy connections in our "rush-rush" worlds by revealing deep issues that we all share...
A definite Modern Must Read, truly awakening insight and helpful inspirations from all over with heaps of provocative information.

From Portals to Mortals, this ebook completes us, solidifying many thoughts, helping organize our spiritual needs with simple words and suggestions:
'...ask different parts of yourself the same question and pay attention to the subtle differences that present themselves in each part's answer. Ask your Essence and separately, ask your Ego.'
There are MORE than many passages in this book where you simply stop in awe of its simplicity and basic logic. I was not expecting this to be a life changing ebook. A more than pleasant surprise I must say. LOVE IT!
Spiritual Skin is an important "handbook" for all generations to come in my opinion, a truly modern guidebook to happiness and well being with yourself, making you honour your choices and especially challenging your daily lifestyle, all in the goal to being just more and more Happy!
I LOVE this ebook Tania Marie! I never said "wow" so many times!!!"

"As someone who does not have any tattoos, but has always wanted one (and has
almost had several in my lifetime but was always stopped by the fear of regret
down the road), I was immediately drawn to Tania Marie's new book, Spiritual
Skin. Tania provides insight and guidance that anyone who is considering a
tattoo needs to have. I finally feel like I have the knowledge and inspiration
to begin the creative process of developing a tattoo that will be both beautiful
and deeply meaningful, even in the long term. Spiritual Skin is definitely an
essential book for anyone who is thinking about a tattoo, already has a tattoo
and is contemplating another, or even someone (sans tattoos) who just wants to
understand the history of this art form."

"I LOVED your book!!! The
whole spiritual aspect inspired me to consider having a tattoo on my body again. I considered getting a tattoo of the OM or enlightenment symbol, which you talked about in your book! That kind of faded away in my head, due to different things in my life I was going through.
And here comes
your book on Spiritual Skin. The title itself stirs something within. When I
read your words, and saw the photos, and learned about Siva and his
spirituality and the way he conducts his business, I was inspired to open
myself to the universe, to the idea that this is someone whom I would trust
with my body, and that if a way opened, this is someone whom I would let help
me find a tattoo that would represent my letting go, and taking the next step
in the spiritual path. Like you wrote in your book about how your tattoos came
to you at different times in your spiritual growth, that's what I would do. Be
open to seeing it, and find a way to have it done by someone I could trust.
Siva's standards are comforting. And, lol, of course open to manifesting the
funds to pay for that.
So Tania, your
book opened the door of possibilities that much wider, to renewing getting a
tattoo that I would love and honor as much as you do yours. To making that
declaration for myself, to honor spirit on earth.
I loved your
words, your inspiration, you are a beautiful soul. I have recommended your book and will continue to spread the word. A friend of mine, who
loves tattoos, bought Spiritual Skin after I told her about it, and she loves
So thank you for
making a difference Tania, in my world and in this world, at this time of
spiritual awakening and New Earth birthing. I love you, who you are, what you
stand for, and the courage and joy you embody."
"Tania provides a concise and common sense discourse on the importance and
history of the Sacred Art form of Tattoo in her wonderful book "Spiritual Skin."
This ancient art form has long been a way for humans to link with the Divinity
found in Nature and the Etheric Realms of Spirit, bridging the gap between the
physical and the Spiritual. Tania's insight and intuitive knowledge convey the
deeply personal and energetic connection many of us feel with our expressions
from the Soul that emerge as the designs on our Body Divine. Having experienced
many hours of the Sacred Art herself, she is able to relate the very real
transformations a person goes through when initiating themselves with this rite
of passage and claiming of personal power that results from the Energy gained
when a tattoo is placed upon the Body. Whether you are a seasoned veteran like
myself, or contemplating your first tattoo, this book is a must have. Namaste."
"I love the works of Tania Marie! For me, tattoos should be symbolic and meaningful! And this is the magic that Tania Marie has managed to do with her wonderful creations! This latest piece of work expresses an exceptionally unique talent ... and this is also reflected in all of the work Tania creates. Thanks to its very strong, positive vibrations and also her vision of the universe, Tania Marie is an example of how to live with powerful emotions through her creations .... Besides being a beautiful person, she knows how to stand out from the greatness of her soul!"

"As someone who is not into tattoos and would never get one myself, I found this book quite insightful. For anyone contemplating getting a tattoo, this writing provides a physical, historical and metaphysical perspective that should help to provide an excellent basis for thorough evaluation of what might work best as they process their decision."
Frank, Retired Marketing Executive
"I am very impressed!! This book was extremely helpful in synchronously addressing concerns in regard to the self-searching process, Tattooing in the form of Sacred Honor, and unfolding patterns of Anciently integrated symbolism within the infinite reflection of universal evolution, consistently drawing your Attention with Intention, calling you into alignment as an integral aspect to this currently shifting paradigm of Now!
Expressing Gratitude to Tania Marie for sharing such intimate perceptions, experiences and valuable advice. Also for being called upon to gain further insights and inspiring confirmation through this wonderfully illustrating and thorough examination of the Spiritual Self ~ Namaste!!"
