Located in Bodh Gaya and often referred to as the peepal tree, the bodhi tree is very meaningful and incredibly sacred, especially to Buddhists. In fact, this exact line of trees is said to have helped Buddha himself reach enlightenment, and while some people simply enjoy the trees for that reason, others choose to turn them into tattoo designs.
Fortunately, since Bodhi Tree tattoos are so aesthetically pleasing, people of all backgrounds and religions can enjoy their beauty. Therefore, whether you are a Buddhist yourself, or just looking for some neat designs to peek at, the list below should certainly be of interest!
