Soul Tattoo FAQs

There's no other Soul Tattoo like yours

Can my entire Soul be shown in one Tattoo?

Every Soul Tattoo will show a particular part of your soul. It’s like a photograph at a specific time and under specific conditions. It wouldn’t be possible to entirely capture your Soul into one visualization because your soul’s information goes beyond the two (or three) dimensional representation we can perceive with our eyes. But it does show (at least part of) an elemental essence of your Soul. And the two dimensional representation (your Soul Tattoo) stays connected to that multidimensional source. So the part that is made visible could be seen as an entry way to access your Soul’s essence. Or as a visual expression through which its bigger energy can travel into our physical world, and into your energetic field, your inner spheres, and your DNA.

I’ve seen someone’s Soul Tattoo and I would like to have exactly the same, is it possible?

I know seeing someone’s Soul Tattoos can make a deep impression on you. But every Soul Tattoo is unique and is created especially for the one person who felt the calling of their Soul to be expressed in this way. It is therefore not possible and not allowed to reproduce a Soul Tattoo design.

If you feel the pull to have your own Soul Tattoo created for you, I’m ready for you. Or have a look at the Art Shop to discover my series of Soul Codes which could be turned into a design for a tattoo if you wish. Contact me and we’ll sort it out.

How do I know what size my tattoo will be?

The sizes indicated in my Art Shop are mini Soul Tattoo > small > medium > large > extra large. I found this the easiest way to indicate the difference between possible designs, yet it says more about the complexity of the design than the actual size. 

For example, a mini Soul Tattoo usually comprises of one coherent symbol, whereas a small Soul Tattoo is a collection of a few symbols, and so on. The actual size you will have it marked with on your skin is something you will figure out with the tattoo artist. Obviously, medium to extra large designs will not be suitable for very small sized tattoos. Yet, a mini Soul Tattoo could be enlarged quite a bit and still be perfect. 

I would love to have my Soul Tattoo but I do not have a big budget, what can we do?

Soul Tattoos come in different sizes to match everyone’s budget and wishes. You could opt for a mini Soul Tattoo. A sweet little size to start with and it could serve as a basis for your future Soul Tattoo for when your budget has grown.

Or you could op for a Soul Code, they come in wide array of prizes and sizes too.

What’s the difference between a Soul Tattoo and a Soul Code?

A Soul Tattoo is a custom made tattoo based entirely on your Soul. It is channeled specifically and solely for you. It is unique in the world.

A Soul Code is a channeled message often resonating with many Souls. It could be seen as a translation of a Universal Soul message.

I want to gift someone else a Soul Tattoo. Is that possible?

This is so kind of you! That person must mean a lot to you. Part of the birthing process of a personal Soul Tattoo is the YES! We need a fully conscious YES! from the person who’s Soul Tattoo I’m about to draw. So if you’re willing to inform that person you would like to gift them their Soul Tattoo, and they say YES!, it is possible. I would need them to contact me personally though, and then we can arrange for you to settle their payment.

Another option is to surprise them with one of the generic Soul Codes that are also available in my Art Shop.

I want my Soul Tattoo to be ready for my birthday or any other special day, is that possible?

The visualization process of a Soul Tattoo follows a particular time line, which we should respect. Clock time and calendars are an illusion to make life practical but to which our Souls do not conform. It can therefore not be predicted how long it will actually take for it to be birthed and ready to be sent out to you. On top of that, I also respect my very own pace and I do not wish to work with strict calendar deadlines for this type of work. So if you want your Soul Tattoo to be ready before a certain date, just make sure you order it months upfront, or… surrender to the process. You might be surprised by the liberation it has in store for you.

Frouke, are you the one who will tattoo the design?

Mind that I am not the one marking the tattoo on your skin. Find yourself a good tattoo artist, preferably someone who knows how to create and hold a Sacred & Safe Space. Letting the tattoo being born on your skin is a profound and very personal process. You may want to work with someone who gifts you the space to feel the energetic shifts and who is capable of guiding you through any emotional or physical issues that may occur during the session.

Also make sure to check wether they are okay with marking a design they didn’t create themselves.

Help, I love the look and feel of a Soul Tattoo but I’m not into tattoos!

No worries, I’ve got your back. I offer Soul Drawings too! Just pick the Black and White design and mention in the comments that you love the looks of a Soul Tattoo. Or browse through the other products that are available through my Art Shop. Subscribers to my Newsletter receive shop updates or else my Instagram is the place to be!

Show me your Soul, I’ll show you your Tattoo

Say YES! to expressing and embodying your Soul Tattoo

A birthing journey

Yeah, birthing, not designing. To design it I would have to use my mind, and honestly my mind has no business with your Soul Tattoo. It’s a birthing process, and it has its own specific timeline.
The birthing process can be quicker than the clock can tick, or it can come at a speed that invites us to slow down along side with it. It’s a remarkable process so I wanted to share the different phases and what is happening behind the scenes.

Your YES!

So first things first and that means you’re feeling an inner calling. You are ready for saying YES! to welcoming your Soul Tattoo from the depths of your Soul. The beauty of it is that you most probably have no idea what this tattoo will look like. Yet, you somehow just know and feel you are ready to receive the gift of its visual translation. You have come a long way and you are ready for expressing (part of) your Soul’s essence on your skin. By doing so you’re saying YES! to fully expressing and embodying (part of) your Soul’s mission.


As soon as you have honestly expressed this YES!, things start shifting. Your Soul Tattoo is a visual representation of complex multidimensional information. You could compare it to a snapshot (photo) of an incredibly complex party with many things going on. Too much to easily capture, really. So this information needs to be rearranged to better ‘fit’ into the two-dimensional space of a paper (or your skin).
This shifting dynamics in the different dimensions can go unnoticed or can be experienced quite intensely by you. It all depends on your personal path, intentions, needs, level of awareness and available inner space during the creation process.

Ready, set, go

Another way of describing this process is by envisioning a large funnel through which all this information is about to come down (from the Universe down to Earth). Once it reaches the tube-like part at the bottom of the funnel it arrives into the birth channel of the Universe. And that usually is the start sign for me to actually sit down and get ready to draw. Occasionally, the drawing happens in just a couple of hours, but more often I find myself coming back at it regularly to check-in and feel whether new bits of information are ready to be visualized. I spend quite some time just sitting and tuning in, sometimes assisting in the shifts that are happening. With lots of patience and respect, your Soul Tattoo slowly reveals itself.

Welcome Soul Tattoo

Indeed, the visual translation of your Soul Tattoo takes time. I’ve learned the hard way that it is important both for you and me to respect the otherworldly timelines which are not always in correspondence with the linear times of our rational minds.

Once it has fully come through, I make a neat print of it which I usually bless on a little altar especially created for you and your Soul Tattoo. Then, after a bit of smudging, it is entirely ready to come your way. You’ll receive the print through regular mail.

Make sure to check out my blog on FAQs about Soul Tattoos.

Whenever you are ready…
Lots of love,

PS: You would love to have your Soul in a drawing, but you’re not into tattoos? No worries I make Soul Drawings too!

Dear 2022

Picture of a frozen puddle of water, representing this time of year where we look inside to our dear 2022

Respect your timeline.

Dear 2022

I didn’t feel it at first.
You know, clearing out what no longer serves me and making space for the New. Getting rid of the old and setting new year’s resolutions. It’s just that it always takes a little bit more time with me.

Respect your timeline

I seem to be having my own timing and it’s not always following the crowd’s timing. And that’s okay. Asia Suler poetically describes this in her book Mirrors in the Earth stating that some trees hold on to their leaves way longer than others. Just like us humans sometimes hold on to certain experiences or memories a lot longer than our life companions.

 “There’s a reason why your system isn’t done with it yet and chooses to hold on to it. Trust it.

So, I didn’t feel it at first. While coming across other people’s elaborate (and beautiful) thank-you-2022-letters or wishing-and-looking-forward-2023-statements nothing moved inside me.
Until this morning, quite unexpectedly.

2022, the movie

Suddenly, a film of memories from 2022 started playing right in front of my eyes. Bringing up all kinds of experiences. To be honest, 2022 took off with a blast. I didn’t even fully realize we had made the transition into the new year when I suddenly became aware I was sitting on this fast speeding train that was definitely taking me someplace else than the previous year.

Time is such an incomprehensible concept when spending a lot of it living and working in otherworldly realms (not to be mistaken with not being grounded). Thinking back to January 2022 seems like yesterday and a decade ago at the same time.

In a nutshell

The 2022-train brought me:

  • My re-emergence on social media. And that had everything to do with starting up my new business as Art Sound & Medicine Woman. My urge to bring you my gifts itches! So I have found a new understanding with social media that works well for me and I hope for you too.
  • My new website where I tried to create a warm and cozy corner on the internet for you to explore all of my treasures to enrich your life with.
  • Next level learning in Shamanic Healing through the Shamanic training with Frank Coppieters and Kathy Melcher.
  • A deep dive into Sound Healing with modules 2 and 3 at Akasha Retreat Center with Maarten Adriaenssens.
  • The birth of my very personal and handmade shaman drum guided by Greet Mermans.
  • Soul Tattoos, both my own and designs for dear friends of mine.

Thank you!

Obviously, lots and lots of dear people were with me on that train. I’m so grateful for their presence, patience, honesty, inspiration and love.

Last but not least, I’m deeply touched with your presence, dear reader. It’s you and future you whom I’m doing it for.

Who knows one day we’ll co-create your Soul Drawing or your Soul Tattoo. I’d be honored to and I just can’t wait to get started.

Or if you’re geographically close to me, you’re ever so welcome to join in on our upcoming Cacao ceremonies, Soul & Spirit Circles or Sound of our Womb Workshop.

And to those of you who feel the call to join us to the Peruvian jungle, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it.

For now, I’m just going to be savoring all this a little bit longer before diving into the new adventure. I’m confident all will fall into place at the right moment, the right timing, my timing. If you’re ready for 2023, bring it on! I’ll catch up with you later.

Wishing you love and peace,

Oh, I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions but what 2022 absolutely lacked for me was decent exercise. Apart from lots of dancing over summertime and the daily warmups for my voice, I have been way too lazy, so please 2023…come kick my ass!

Dare to Be Creative

Drawing made by Art Sound Medicine Woman of Mother Turtle. The drawing has black line drawings in the back and a colorful turtle in the middle. The drawing serves as an invitation to discover the Creative Space inside yourself, on the website and here on the blog.

All you need to express how Life is running through Your veins is a dedicated Moment, a Canvas, a solid Intention and your willingness to Open up.

If you dare to be creative, you dare to be you and that’s a gift to yourself and to the world.

Dedicated moment

Now is perfect.

But of course you’re busy reading all this, so it’s probably a little less than perfect. Yet, you’re searching for something. You can feel it itching right beneath your skin or in the back of your throat. And perhaps…something is holding you back to just Be Creative.


You could very well set up a creative space for yourself, select a canvas of choice and get to it with a sparkling intention. I have done that a million times and I’m sure you’ve done that before too. Remember singing in the shower? Drawing doodles on the rainy window? Or stacking the wood of an outdoor fire in a particular way?

Indeed! Your canvas doesn’t necessarily need to be a piece of paper or painting cotton. It might just as well be a Sound or 3-dimensional Space. Natural elements form great canvases too: Water, Fire, Soil, Leaves, Stones…

Intention and Opening up

Intention is key in almost anything you do in Life.  If you have read this far, I bet you have a solid Intention to Be Creative. May it be a need to express a certain emotion, to honor a particular event or to discover the Magic inside yourself.

In order to express what lives inside you into the outside world, you’ll need to Open up and Surrender. As scary as that may sound, as blissful it feels.

Whenever you feel ready to Be Creative, I’m here to support you.

Okay, lots of possibilities, but as with many things in life, it sometimes simply is more relaxing or more fun when someone else is taking care of everything, and you can lean back and surrender to the process.

Discover your options to set up your Creative space:

  • Artistic Date with yourself
  • Individual Creative session guided by me
  • Creative Flow session guided by me

Colorful blessings,

“Dare to be Creative. Dare to be you!”

Act as if nobody is watching

Act as if nobody is watching. Out of nowhere this phrase comes up in my mind while heading off for my walk into the forest. With every step I take it sinks and eventually drowns in a puddle of new thoughts. Beautifully colored leaves, insects, people, clouds and what not distract my mind while I wander off.

Unconscious mind

Suddenly I find myself walking passed a bunch of tall pine trees. In the corner of my eyes I notice that one tree is cut, right in the middle, leaving a wide open space. I stop, take a few steps back and give the scene a closer look. I’m now sensing the trees and this particular composition with my belly and my outer bodies. The longing to go stand on top of the stump arises from deep within me. In the split second between me becoming aware of the longing and the moment my being is getting ready to come into action, my unconscious mind kicks in and loudly shouts inside my head: “You are not allowed to go off track!” followed by “What if somebody sees you?!”

"Act as if nobody is watching!"


The Trees are calling

That clearly came from the Trees themselves. I quickly decide to go for it before my entire “good-girl-programming” gets the chance to fully launch. Carefully I find my way to the stump. I’m standing tall, feet glued to what once was a giant tree, and I close my eyes.


An immense space is surrounding me, a sky high field of forces. All in the Universe present in that little part of the forest. My heart picks up on a vibrational field built by the trees surrounding me.

Suddenly, footsteps were approaching. I don’t move. I stand tall as a tree, feel every footstep vibrate through the air. Notice how the sound changes as they walk passed me and continue their journey. The difference between the moving ability of that person and the standing quality of the trees becomes apparent. The sensation is massive. Magical. Peaceful. Timeless.

As I soak in every sensation this experience gifts me, more footsteps approach me but I don’t recall more details of them.

I become the tree.

Deepen your connection with Nature

We’re all capable of developing our “13th sense” (so to speak) through which we can communicate with Nature all around us. It just takes practice and patience (similar to training a muscle). And sometimes all you need is good company (getting started at the gym seems way more feasible together, right?). If what you read above resonates and makes you curious to experience these kinds of moments yourself, you’re very welcome to book a Shamanic Integration Session. We’ll dive into the forest, we’ll sharpen your intuition, and we’ll make sure you go home with the tools at hand to further practice your 13th sense on your own, or with friends.

Life Story Drawing

Life Story Drawing of Helena, an elder woman residing in an elderly home who loved waving at my friend when she passed by while riding her horse.

Our Elders carry true treasures about their personal history, our families, Life in general and our cultural inheritance

Once upon a time…

“I have had a good life, a very good life.” She looks up and smiles at us.

“Make sure to enjoy it, it goes by very fast.”

The last thing we’re curious about is what has been her most beautiful lesson in life. “No. No, I can’t remember,” she says, staring into a lifetime that stretches out over eight decades. 

Our Life Story chat had come to an end. The past 90 minutes this wonderful lady told us with a lot of enthusiasm about the 85 summers she’s lived. About the highlights (the many travels, her one-of-a-kind husband, her children, het favorite music, art) and the difficult parts (loosing her father during the war). But now she’s tired and starting to withdraw from the conversation. The paper is entirely filled with sketches and notes, except for one little corner. I promise her I’ll find something to complete the drawing.

When we arrived and called her out of the canteen, she was over the moon. These guests were coming especially for her! Her eyes were shining bright and her smiles was wide, while we took her somewhere quiet to talk. After providing her with a drink and an ashtray, we were good to go.

We didn’t have too many warm leads to start this conversation as neither of us knew each other. Moreover, this Life Story Drawing hadn’t been ordered by one of her relatives but by a ‘casual passerby’.

“Who is Heidi again?” she asks us.

Well…Heidi is the woman who passes right in front of your window with her pony two mornings a week. And when she does, she waves and you wave back at her. “Oh, yes!” she shouts out loud, “I remember that!”

It’s wonderful how this story of two strangers develops into a warm friendship as Heidi finds out where the lady lives and comes to visit her from time to time. This story could have been a fairy tale but is a true story and it’s getting more beautiful by the minute.

Before setting up our meeting, Heidi checked with her children to get their permission. But neither of them knew very well what it was we were planning on doing. So the surprise when the final A3 drawing was ready was big.

Her children let us know that the absolutely loved seeing their mother’s Life Story on paper. Not only did they liked it visually, they also discovered new elements the knew nothing about up until then. This is normal in most families because we’re not always used to talking about the past, we don’t take the time to sit down and really listen, or memory issues complicate our conversations.

Now, due to this drawing, their conversations were taking new turns. And so did the chats with the nurses in the retirement home where she resides. It gave them the opportunity to occasionally refer back to items from the past that felt familiar to her. 

It was a true honor to co-create this Life Story Drawing. Much gratitude to the family and of course to Heidi, who set this up. It may be clear, I knew exactly what should come in that empty corner: two lovely people, waving at each other, here and now and forever more.
