Corium Veneficus (skin magic)
Magic, tattooing and Sigils
The art of tattooing, with the intentions of metaphysical or supernatural properties, could arguably date back to the beginning of tattooing itself. Yantra (or Sak Yant) is a form of tattooing practiced in Southeast Asian countries by Buddhists which date back 2000 years. The script spells out abbreviated syllables from Pali incantations, which protect the wearer.
Sigils are symbols used in magic. They were used in training books called grimoires, which granted the magician control over entities or abilities. In modern days, the practitioner uses the method by which the words of a statement of intent are reduced into an abstract design; the sigil is then charged with the will of the creator. Unlike traditional sigils, whose creators made use of traditional lore passed down from generations or from books, modern users often create sigils entirely themselves and devise individual means of “charging” them with metaphysical power.
Pannosignium (sigil tattoo)
For over 10 years, I have been enthralled with tattoos and the artform of tattooing, immersing myself in both the art and the craft. I have also been an adept in the occult and mystical lore for most of my mature life; especially sigil magic and mysticism. Its ideology and depiction has always captivated me. The use of magic through the drawing of pictures and designs, inscribed with powerful words which make things happen.
A marriage had to happen. Pannosignium.
A sigil is designed with the sole intent of the client, for a purpose. This sigil is then tattooed on them, imbuing the client with the power of that sigil. It is a personal process, one that varies from client and meaning, and one that should not be taken lightly.
The meaning of the sigil and its construction is not a simple process.
It starts with trust. Trust is something that has always plagued the tattoo industry. A client will usually put faith into a tattooist, with sometimes little or no knowledge of that person’s skill. The end result will sometimes be a poorly done tattoo; one the client regrets. Another factor of trust is that the Sigil is designed with the intentions of the client, and their wishes. The Sigil is a complex diagram, sometimes with languages in Syriac (Aramaic), Enochian, Hebrew and Latin. These two things combined, make trust the first factor in Pannosignium.
Second, the client must decide what the Sigil will do. Applications can be as simple as protection, to a complex set of abilities which span multiple ideologies or events. The process is unique to the individual, and should be painstakingly thought out thoroughly. Any type of magic should not be “winged” or “thrown together”. It is a serious business, and belief in the project is important.
Belief. This is the third part of the project. Though it can be speculated that the sigil is endowed with power from its creator, belief is still a powerful concept with the carrier of the sigil. It is known and proven that belief is a power in itself, and has made many things possible for people, throughout history. It is one of the gifts that mankind has been given, and one that has taken us to where we are today. The belief in a sigil is no different.
Lastly, the sigil is created specifically for the client, and the client only. It is then tattooed on the client as part of the rite known as Corium Veneficus. The process is little different than a normal tattoo, save the energy put into the process, and small details. Regardless, you should always do your own research!
Underneath you will see a sample of what the sigils I design look like. This one (personally crafted for my brother), is a protection seal. Feel free to email me with any questions and I look forward to working with anyone interested in Pannosignium!
