Flo's aum/ohm/om tattoo

One of my sisters, Florencia, and her tattoo :)


Om or Aum: it's a mystical or sacred syllable in the Dharmic religions. It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred exclamation to be uttered at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or previously to any prayer or mantra. The Mandukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to the explanation of the syllable.
