12 Buddha Tattoos You'll Love
Buddhism is the fourth-largest religion in the world. The devotion of Buddha’s followers towards his teachings is impeccable to say the least. We’re talking about the legend of a Prince (Prince Siddhartha) who abandoned all his wealth and glory in search of the truth. Buddhist tattoos are the representations of Buddhist symbols, mantras, and deities.
Buddha meditated incessantly, keeping the worldly pleasures at bay till he finally obtained ENLIGHTENMENT and got all his answers. And thus the legend of Buddha, the enlightened was born.
A staunch Buddhist follower would love to have a tattoo of Buddha, Tara, Zambala, eight spokes, Mahakala, mantras, mandalas and so on. Some say that getting a tattoo related to Buddha’s values is hypocritical since the tattoo would signify attachment to one’s body. However, most of the followers of Buddhism in this day and modern age would get inked without hesitation. Tattoo is an art of self expression and more than attachment to one’s body, a modern day Buddhist would get a Buddha or a Buddha related tattoo not to flaunt but for his/ her own self.
Tattoos can act as a daily reminder to oneself of Buddha’s teachings and values so that one doesn’t lose one’s path towards being a better human being.
His teachings are said to rid any person from his/ her misery. Ardent followers of Buddha claim to have attained salvation from their worldly problems using all his teachings. Buddha tattoos are meant to depict the teachings of this great spiritual leader. The tattoos are preferred by not only Buddhist followers, but a large number of other (non-Buddhist) people who believe in the ultimate truth of life, that one needs to overcome all sufferings and temptations of life to reach the stage of salvation or nirvana. Getting a tattoo representing his values would act as a moral compass for anyone wanting to reach the stage of nirvana.
