Mandala Tattoo Meaning
The ancient art of mandala traces its roots all the way back to India. And since then it has extended throughout the world, and for good reason. These round designs are a visual representation of the universe. Their round shapes represent the fact that life has no end and is ever continuing around and around. Each mandala is unique and has a particular pattern symbolising the unity and peace in life.
These patterns are traditionally used in enhancing meditation and understanding the deeper side to life. They are especially prevalent in Hinduism and Buddhism. Monks in Tibet will create these intricate designs by hand and when finished, simply sweep them away. Many meditation centres will have them on walls to assist members take their meditation to a new level.
It’s not surprising that these beautiful and meaningful art pieces have become popular tattoos. If you are looking for a tattoo with a little more depth to it then seriously consider a mandala tattoo. These mandala tattoos often carry an otherworldly and even religious theme and because of this are often sported by people who, if not deeply religious, are more in tune with the more mystical side of life.
