Tattoos today use a wide variety of themes to encompass across a truly diverse range of human emotions. Specific categories of tattoos have emerged which symbolize specific but interrelated sets of emotions. Buddha tattoos are a special category of tattoos which are loosely based on and around the philosophy of Buddha and Buddhism, and have profound symbolic meanings.
Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher, believed to have been lived in present-day India, whose teachings gradually led to the advent of Buddhism in India and subsequently to other distant parts of the world. The philosophy and thoughts of this great thinker is believed and respected by millions of Buddhists and non-Buddhists all over the world today. This creates the basis for bringing the figure of Buddha into the world of tattoos. Although it can be used as a simple fashion statement, mostly the people who get Buddha tattoos are influenced by his life and thoughts, at least to a small extent. If you’re thinking about getting a Buddha tattoo, getting a glimpse of his thoughts and character will undoubtedly be help you in carrying the full meaning of your tattoo with your attitude. The world will never forget great men like Buddha who enlightened us on how to live a true life. Try to make Buddha a part of your character and not just the body.
