What to Expect When You Wear My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™


As more and more of you across the globe are discovering the power of my Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ (thank you, Helena A. for recently making Finland my 46th CB country!) , I am getting a lot more emails.

Many of them are beautiful stories about sharing how my tattoos have shifted something – a health, money, relationship issue, or more – in your life. Many of them are on this page (and many are unposted, as I truly cannot keep up).

I’m also getting more questions about what effect to expect from each of my healing tattoos, so I think it’s time for me to clarify as best I can.

First, I just want to point out that my tattoos work on an energetic level, but, since you wear them on your body, they also have a deep effect on your physical body. If you wear them regularly enough, they’re a great way to train your energy field and body to flow in the most healthy and vital way — centered through the midline and moving up and down freely.

It’s important to know that when you do very embodied healing techniques that cause your body to shift in big ways, you sometimes go into a healing crisis. When your body that is usually used to its “old ways,” shifts into a new pattern, the you-know-what sometimes hits the fan.

I’m seeing this more and more now as we are determined as a species to shift our bodies as we shift our energies. It’s not enough to do things “out of body” any more. We are here on earth at this time to fully embrace our physical existence which includes of course, material abundance as well as mindful caretaking of our bodies and Mother Earth.

If you’re not familiar with what a healing crisis is, please check out this vlog about it.

Jessica M. from New York recently got a hold of me because she was a little worried. She bought my root chakra tattoos and thought they were going to give her more energy, but instead, as soon as she put them on, she felt tired, and she wanted to know if that was normal.

I wrote to tell her that it was not only normal, but exactly what the root chakra tattoo was created to do!! The root is supposed to relax you, allow you to descend downward and release anxious energy, and even crawl under the covers and go to sleep, if that’s what is needed.

What I love about Jessica’s experience is that:

  1. It shows that my tattoos work with the body, not the conscious mind. Even though Jessica erroneously thought the root would give her get-up-and-go, she still experienced it’s REAL effect of relaxing her and making her want to sleep. This shows that the effect the tattoo had on her was not a “placebo” effect at all – but rather the opposite – it worked IN SPITE OF her erroneous belief. I have a hypnotherapist friend, Martin Peterson who purposefully avoided putting on the heart tattoo that I sent him, because he didn’t want to create a hypnotic, placebo effect around it. Finally, one stressful day during the holidays, he put the heart tattoo on and just forgot about it. A few hours later, he was feeling super peaceful and calm and was wondering how he could feel so calm in the midst of his stressful, holiday schedule, when he suddenly remembered he had put on my heart tattoo. He told me he loved that because he knew it wasn’t his mind making it work – he had actually forgotten about it!
  2. The other thing I love about Jessica’s experience is that it reminds me that I haven’t educated you guys enough about what to typically expect from each individual chakra. I say “typically” here, because we are all unique and will sometimes experience something completely unique.

I have a tattoo FAQ page you should check out here, and also an good article on how to make the tattoos last longer here.

In this article, I’m going to do my best to share what to expect from each tattoo.

What to Expect From Wearing My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™:

ROOT CHAKRA – Relaxation, grounding, ability to sleep more easily and deeply, total release or reduction of anxiety

The root energy is known as “apana,” which is the downward moving energy that is caused by gravity and this physical world. Some of us are so UP tight that we just need to wind DOWN, and that’s what this tattoo does. It can increase your overall vitality in the long run, but only after you’ve allowed your body to rest and relax as it needs.

NOTE: It’s best not to put this one on in the morning – try an hour or two before bed.

SACRAL CHAKRA – Emotional release, burst of creativity, a desire to be spontaneous and play, as well as a bigger need for intimacy, joy and/or sensual experiences.

The sacral energy is the Divine Feminine. If you’ve been holding in emotions or holding back your creativity, they may suddenly release. You’ll want to break some plans and be more spontaneous and you may want to connect with your beloved for some delicious, love-making, cuddling or other form of sweet connection.

SOLAR PLEXUS – Boosted energy, confidence, courage, clearer mind and decisions

If you tend to procrastinate and allow your doubts, fears, or indecisiveness to stop you from moving forward in your life, the solar plexus tattoo will give you the momentum you need. It’s like the caffeine of the chakras, but this tattoo won’t have any side effects.

NOTE: DO NOT PUT THIS ONE ON BEFORE BED (especially the first time you wear it) Try first thing in the morning, instead. And beware that if you have old anger that has never been expressed, it may want to come out the first time you wear this tattoo — especially if you wear the throat chakra with it.

HEART – peaceful and balanced, easier to forgive and to feel gratitude

The element of the heart is air, so this tattoo helps you to feel light and breezy. It’s good to pair this one with the root when you can (since “home is where the heart is” and we tend to open our heart more when we feel safe and grounded).

THROAT CHAKRA – desire to express yourself and do what you came here to do, provides relief from neck pain.

You may feel a big desire to just talk and talk. Be aware of what is wanting to come up as you wear the throat chakra and try to communicate with deep awareness. This tattoo seems to really help neck pain. It always makes mine feel better!

BROW CHAKRA – use this one when you sleep (when the pineal gland is secreting melatonin) and you’ll probably find that your dreams are more active and lucid and that you can remember them more. You don’t even have to wet it and officially “wear it” for it to work (READ THIS). The effects of the upper chakra tattoos are much subtler, so you have to feel into them more, but if you can, you’ll likely feel more connected to your intuition and Higher Self.

CROWN CHAKRA – a feeling of peace that is sort of similar to the heart chakra with a relaxed sense of acceptance that everything is happening for your highest, spiritual unfolding.

ALL SEVEN – When you wear all seven at once, it should have a full, charging effect. When I put the whole set on my friend, Harlan, the first time, he couldn’t sleep at all that night (that was years ago when I was discovering the effects of my own tattoos). So if you’re going to wear the whole set, put them on in the morning or early in the day, instead).

The first time, I put root through throat on my musical partner, Jeff Bonilla, he jokingly called me an hour later to ask if I was “poisoning” him, because he was feeling so much heat coming off from them. Jeff went into a bit of a healing crisis, because he’s a sensitive, very embodied healer.

Some folks, though, feel very little or nothing at all. So I want you to know that even if you don’t feel anything, my tattoos are still working.

Let me give you an analogy… Some people are so sensitive that if you give them a small cup of tea they feel shaky from the caffeine and others are so insensitive that you can give them a double shot of espresso and they barely feel it. Still, both types are getting the caffeine and it’s still having its effect on their system.

It’s the same way with my Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™. Their powerful symbols will always create positive energy for your chakras – whether or not you feel it. But I do find that the majority of my customers feel an effect of some sort when they tune in clearly, and really listen (I don’t feel heat with the root tattoo, but I feel the bottom of my feet on the ground more).

Please remember that healing should always be fun, because studies show that when we’re having fun, we learn way faster and better — and healing is just a form of your body learning new ways. So have fun with my Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™, and keep in mind, if you’ve never tried them, there’s no risk to you, because they always come with a full, Money Back 30-Day Guarantee. I only want you to pay for things you appreciate.

Here’s to your healing – and to our collective and planetary healing!!

Love and blessings,

    How long will they stay on and can you take them off and on. Can they get wet? Can you swim and shower when wearing them? Will I get a copy of your list of how to wear them and when when I order the whole sething? Should I order more than one set. Is there a way to put them on your back yourself? Should they be worn only on your backnowledge?

    Wonderful idea!

    Hi Connie, They last 3-8 days on average, hon. No on and off — just one wearing per tattoo. Yes, you can swim and shower (but no oils). It’s good to order more than one set to experiment with them. I am flexible enough to put them on my own back — but each person varies that way. Nice to have a friend do it. You can where them on the back or front (back for healing past trauma and front for moving forward). Read this: http://www.chakraboosters.com/chakra-tattoos-faqs
