“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha
When you decide to dip your toes in body art, you expect a profound change inside out. Talking precisely about tattoos, they are merely not an additional décor on your skin, we know it is way more than that. Every individual has a story they want to cherish for a lifetime and nothing is better than getting a tattoo that reminds you of your story every day. Every time you get a tattoo, it amplifies your beauty and celebrates your story gracefully.
Apart from celebrating stories, sometimes, it is the tattoo that makes its own story. You must have been acquainted with people who get a tattoo to make a change in their lives. Tattoos have helped a lot of people as external support for mental wellbeing. It has also been considered as a pill to boost confidence, and for some, it is the eternal love for art that encourages them to get a tattoo.
The list to get a tattoo is countless (And, no, we are not guilty about that.) Tattoos are the new happy makers. Every time you get a new tattoo, you say it loudly; you believe in your tattoo and the purpose behind it. The sense of having a deep meaning in your tattoo is precious. Whilst having interesting genres and styles, they are also one great way of expressing yourself through art.
Picking just one has never been enough. One of the famous genres is Spiritual Tattoos. In this blog, we will be talking about the ever-expanding love for Buddha Tattoos Worldwide.

Things to keep in mind while getting a Buddha Tattoo
Buddha Tattoos can be offensive to people who keep Buddhism at the core of their value system. The teachings of Buddha are sacred and holy and they should be respected.
Yoni Zilber, a tattooist who specializes in Tibetan Art, says, Images of Buddha and Tibetan mantras are very sacred and should be respected. Often people forget the importance and sacredness of the Buddha Tattoo and choose a disrespectful tattoo placement to get inked. Tattoos and Mantras of Buddha have not been appreciated especially in the lower parts of the body.
It is a total disrespect to your idol. You lay down on a beach, sitting on a toilet seat and many such other activities unknowingly takes place. Buddha, the Supreme, is not supposed to end up in such places. Therefore while getting a Buddha tattoo, you should always keep in mind that a Buddha Tattoo is merely not a form of body decoration to your skin. It holds a strong meaning, to show respect towards your idol is your responsibility.
