tattoo #2 - bodhi tree

    Newer Older

    "Tattooing is about personalizing the body, making it a true home and fit temple for the spirit that dwells inside it.... Tattooing therefore, is a way of keeping the spiritual and material needs of my body in balance." - Michelle Delio

    *this is what day 19 ("secret squirrel") picture was in reference to ;)

    location: left ribs/hip

    meaning: The bodhi tree is a common symbol in Buddhist philosophy, namely as the tree Buddha awakened under and gained enlightenment. For me, I see it as life. As human, I believe it is my responsibility to grow and learn continuously, to awaken in a way, in all aspects of my life: spirituality/religion, counseling, knowledge, relationships, everything... to never stop trying to grow or go higher.
