I think it'd look way better if it was just the lines instead of the red glow around the lines.
also: what kind of company is this/will it be?

you've still got a bit of glow around it now though right?
I'd just get rid of that alltogether. A good needs to be very clear, so that it works and is recognizable in a variety of different sizes, that's why I'd get rid of the glyphs too. Just stick with the two circles in one and the jaw/cheekbone beneath it.
If you want to make it more fancy for certain occasions you can always do that once you've got a solid clear base logo.
Also note that a logo like this might scare away possible clientele, thinking you only do scary/horror themed design work. So unless that is the demographic you're going for you might want to step away from the magic circles and skull motiff.

This is neat but I wouldn't use it as a logo. I don't understand what your trying to get across with it unless your primary business is going to be tattoo designs.

Unless your target is Hot Topic I'd have to agree with the other posters that it may give clients to wrong impression. Aside from that I think you may be skating a bit too close to the Greatful Dead logo.

I think it is a poor choice for a logo. Perhaps it would make a nice graphic if you like it that much, but design is generally more accessible and professional. If you plan on starting a design company, I would go for a simpler and easier to read logo.

What do you notice about logos around you? They are all iconic. They should be something you can doodle on a piece of paper. Most people can do that with Facebook, Monster, YouTube, Reddit, McDonalds, Pepsi, Windows, ETC.

When I look at your logo, I cannot tell what it is, or what it is for. The text is small and slightly illegible. Also, the concept of using pentagrams is somewhat cliche. One company even took it further, and just named their design firm Pentagram.
