This is my new lotus ohm mandala tattoo, it’s located on my right forearm.
A mandala is a geometric design used in Indian and Hindu art. It represents the universe and whole-ness.
A lotus is a flower that represents peace. Lotus flowers also represent rising above surroundings, as they are beautiful flowers found in muddy water.
The sign in the center is an “ohm”, which is the sound of the universe. It’s the sound that creation makes. Saying it aloud has the same healing effect that a cat’s purr does.
It was done by Zera at Brite Idea Tattoo in Ypsilanti, MI.
