18 Impressive And Spiritual Mudra Tattoos
Some tattoos are gorgeous and spiritual, like Mudra tattoos. In sanskrit, "mudra" means "sign" and it describes different hand gestures.
These hand gestures are originating from India. They are very different from Hamsa. There are more than fifty different Mudra signs in Hinduism and Buddhism, and more than one hundred in tantric rituals. Each of these hand signs are visible on statues and representation of Gods and Buddha, and symbolizing different aspects of their lives as well as spiritual emotions. The most famous Mudra signs are Gyan Mudra and Vitarka, often represented on meditating Buddha's statues. And indeed, the praying hands are an universal Mudra. They are also used in meditation and yoga, and if you are looking for powerful yoga tattoos, these elegant hand gestures can make fantastic designs. The traditional Mudra tattoos have thin fingers, with often one touching the thumb (depending on the finger, the meaning is different) and sometimes, an eye in the palm (which can be the "third eye"). The hands can also hold with grace a ritual object or a flower, especially a lotus. The Mudra tattoos can be minimalistic or adorned with intricate (and impressive) geometric patterns, as well as om symbols. They are connecting us again with the energy of the elements and of the universe. If you wish to see some powerful and amazing ink, then you will be impressed by these intense Mudra tattoos.
