Welcome To The World of Spiritual Tattoos
Tattoos are undoubtedly fascinating. But what comes with tattoos is commitment. You might get confused between two or more concepts and might as well drop the whole idea of getting a tattoo because of confusion. The last thing you wanna do is get inked in the heat of the moment and regret it later. The intensity and the weight of getting permanently inked is obviously on the higher side if you decide to get a big definitive tattoo as compared to a small/ minimalistic tattoo. However, that shouldn’t discourage those of you who have resolved to get it done and wear it with pride.
With more and more people choosing yoga, pilates and meditation over the same old gymnasiums, we’re seeing a significant shift in health habits of people. Health is more of a concern of overall well-being over physical appearance and we agree with you on it. Yoga, pilates and meditation have scientifically proven to improve one’s mental health along with physical health.
Small and minimal tattoos can be selectively flaunted. You can always get one, and then one after that, and one after that, you get the drift :p They look super classy and/ or cute depending on your vibe. There are many options to choose from and you can be as specific as you want and have it as personal and meaningful as you decide to make it.
For those of you who are spiritual, into meditation and yoga, getting a themed tattoo that matches your vibe and state of mind would be epitome of classy self expression. And the best part about it is that you don’t have to get a big ‘in your face’ tattoo if you’re uncomfortable with it.
Small tattoos can be script tattoos, line art tattoos, symbols, floral art etc. So, how do you find that one of a kind tattoo which complements your persona? We've got you covered, just keep scrolling :)

1. Unalome Tattoo
Unalome is a buddhist symbol that speaks about an individual's transcendence on this planet. They say you’re born for a reason, there’s a purpose to fulfil before you go back to nothingness. In the Buddhist tradition, Unalome represents the path each person takes throughout their life.
That road is different for all 7 billion of us. That’s what sets us apart from animals. At different points of time, it’s filled with anxiety, fear, terror, happiness, and love. This path begins at the centre of a spiral, which represents the way we're trapped in our own weakness, fear, and uncertainty. As the path unfolds, the mind finds clarity, eventually freeing itself from the cycles of continuous suffering. It is a great option for the Yogis and people who are set on a spiritual journey.
2. Buddha Tattoo
Known to have reached a state of enlightenment known as “Bodhi,” Buddha taught “Dhamma,” which is the state of righteousness and truth found in every human being and the universe. Essentially, a tattoo of Buddha represents these truths, although there are variations that change the meaning as a whole. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to understand the serenity of preaching of Buddha and the same applies to symbolising everything he stood for via a tattoo of Buddha.
3. Lotus Tattoos
Known as Padma, or the 'Sacred Lotus', it is a symbol of divine beauty and purity. Primarily associated with the Gods Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi, the flower's opening petals symbolize spiritual awakening and the expansion of the soul. Getting a lotus tattoo would depict your affinity towards blissfulness and peace. After all life’s pretty chaotic and no one can blame you for wanting a little bit of bliss!
4. Arrow Tattoos
Arrows do not fit into any particular category of tattoos. It’s pure art, open to interpretation. Tattoos can mean vigour, speed, direction, focus, aims and so much more. Shiva’s Trishul is yet another example. It shows perseverance and aggression towards working hard till you get what you want, the go getter attitude.
5. Mantra Tattoos
Many advocates for yoga have also credited yoga for ridding them of addictions and terminal diseases. A yoga tattoo like the classic ‘OM’ is impeccably versatile in the sense that it can be designed and styled in an array of infinite ways. Meditation has brought comfort to people with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. A tattoo paying tribute to Mantras would portray your mental status and keep you aligned and sane. Not to forget Sanskrit, Urdu, Latin and other indigenous languages have a charm of their own that nothing else can replace.
8. Minimal Script Tattoos
These tattoos are for you short, sweet and to the point ones. Sometimes one word is all you ever need to express yourself. Because too many words spoil the essence of what you want to say. Ironic, isn’t it? They’re minimalistic, yet catchy, short, yet make more sense than an entire paragraph. Minimal script tattoos are gaining popularity by the day and will for sure amaze those who get the gist of the tattoo.
