The Buddha is a universal symbol of peace and love. His figure, sitting in meditation below a giant tree, appears in many tattoo designs. The Buddhists showcase their spiritual beliefs with Buddhist tattoos of many different kinds. Some tattoos are simple and richly colored in which they show a meditating Buddha. Many tattoos delve into the spiritual traditions of Buddhists and draw on complex symbols and patterns. The intricate script of ancient Buddhist texts is sometimes inked in tattoo designs on the back as well.
Buddhist tattoo designs are inked in both monochromatic and colored patterns. Monochromatic designs with delicate ink strokes, give a life-like look to a Buddha tattoo. The statue of the Buddha is depicted in many realistically inked tattoo designs. Many tattoos show the serene face of the Buddha, his eyes closed in deep meditation. The Buddha is also shown seated on a lotus, in some tattoos. The lotus is a symbol of purity and deep spiritual search, and is inked in soft hues like pink, mauve, or blue. Pencil sketch style designs give a softened look to a Buddha tattoo. Blue symbolizes peace and spiritual knowledge, and is often used to shade tattoos showing the face of the Buddha. Floral patterns framing the meditating Buddha look gorgeous in tattoo designs.
