Buddhist Tattoos


Tattoo, dedicated to the Buddha, can not contain an image of the Buddha himself. It may be a lion representing the Royal power, the Dharma wheel – a symbol of Noble Octal Way, signs of the Buddha or the Lotus flower (see Tattoo Lotus). The flower may be white, red, pink or blue. For example, the white Lotus symbolizes care and protection over all living beings. Footprint of Buddha means the awakened presence of the Buddha on earth.
