Such great art for such great books. Huge fan of both. =D
I'm using Angelic Power as my coat of arms in a game, with credit to both you and Cassie. Hope that's ok. I'll take it down if it's not, of course. =]

Thanks! Hopefully it'll lend me some of that power. =D Wouldn't it be awful if I turned out to be a mundane and had to start again? =O

I love getting ink'd and when I say these in the mortal instruments, all I could think about is having a series of these scrolling from the top of one arm, across my back and down the other arm.

As you have given you blessing for them to be tattooed upon our persons........I think I must approach my mate who is a tattooist.

Happy days :)

5 million years late and probably not nearly as eloquent I would like for it to have been, but thanks for sharing this. I kept it in my inbox because I kept wanting to sit down and write something thoughtful, not spasmodic, not just because I like the tattoo and I appreciate you sharing it, but it's really intimate, not that all tattoo's aren't intimate but there is always an intimacy in the runes people pick but the placement and (from my p.o.v. maybe) it create an insight into the wearer. and I love it for that and this and you. so thanks, it's awesome. and if I can get into the swing of updating my facebook page again I'd love to share it, which you are welcome to say no and I can just stare at it in my own greedy privilege and bask in it's glory. either way thanks xx

It's totally alright! I really wasn't even expecting a response, just wanted to share it in case people might be interested. This tattoo is my first and it definitely has meaning for me and serves a a visible reminder, which is exactly what I wanted. You can absolutely post it on your facebook page, but if you want I could give you a better picture of it (especially since that one was taken right after it was done and you can see that it was bleeding a bit oops). Just let me know!

Thank you! These runes are amazing, it's sooo wonderful to see them on paper and I will never thank you enugh for this, for giving them shape!!
And....I'm thinking, in this very moment, about getting one of this tattooed. I'm fascinated by the "Angelic power" one, it's shape...it calls to me, somehow :)

Just want to ssy love the work. Also how you reply to someone confronting you or the coincidence of how one looks like one from some where else it takes a brilliant mind to think of these and to reply to that kind of comment in the way you did brovo. Your work made the movie for me I will be getting some tattoos of them if you don't mind.

I try to ^^; even if the reply is rather late. 

I'm really touched they meant so much for you.
It means a lot to reach people, even if they respond negatively it still means people are affected by my work... of course I'd always prefer for it not to be negative but you know, you can't always get what you want. 

And of course I wouldn't mind you taking my work then and further making it part of your person. I'd be honored, truly <3

 I stared at these... www.omniglot.com/writing/runic… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icelandi… www.sumscorp.com/new_models_of… ...and went from there.

At least with the first set and some of the latter ones. The midly ones I included other glyphs I studied, at least three but an asian influence never actually came into it aside from the fact that I drew hem out formally with my calligraphy brush & pen.

I apprenticed in a Tattoo shop in my teens so there is also that. I don't know that there is any formal application because it isn't like I went to school for any of this. just mostly fiddled till I got somewhere I Liked... because I like to fiddle.  (´∀`)
Hope that answers your question!

I am writing my own book, and I want to use historical Sumerian cuneiform as my basis of design. The mortal instruments interested me when I realize the author had some of the same ideas as I had.....except I actual want my nephilim to be actual giants. Using the more historical reference of them. It's a totally different kind of book, but there are some small similarities. Except no downworlders or a school for shadowhunters or shadowhunters at all. But alot of awesome fighting and spirituality.

These are really awesome. I am so glad Cassandra asked you to design them into reality. They are very unique, unlike symbols I have seen before. I like how in the movie trailer they look more hand drawn than tattooed, like they would be. Fantastic job!

hello my name is Jesus and I have some questions about certain runes I think you design Shadowhunter series and it is this, because you gave runes meaning and not the first or the best if you have it and you have not revealed could you please reveal the meaning of each rune you find yourself actually could you please tell us. from a fan

My only complaint is the little words at the bottom. One of your runes is, as you know, not yours but a historical item. But the little words say others can't use your runes.

It's not that I'm against you protecting your work, but that part of the work isn't yours. You still felt it necessary to make sure others knew they couldn't use it.

I dunno, maybe I'm just being grouchy.
