jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Lovers of the peaceful Asian landscapes, with their gorgeous Nature, have indeed already admired pagodas.

These harmonious and impressive temples are present in all east Asia, especially in China and Japan, and are the main reference for pagoda tattoos. The roots of the word "pagoda" are difficult to trace, but it refers to temples inspired of the stupas, sacred architectural elements of Nepal and Buddhist countries. The different stories of the pagodas are full of mystic symbols, linked to Nature but also soul and religions. Pagoda tattoos are of course gorgeous, but also very intricate. They are the perfect way to mix the badass look of architecture tattoos and a fascination for Asia. Pagoda tattoos are common elements for big Japanese pieces, along with torii, lanterns, bamboo forests, cranes and characters such as gorgeous geishas or courageous samurais. Tattoos can make you travel with just one look, and these noble and splendid pagoda tattoos will make you experience the bliss of the ultimate peace for sure...
