16 Zen Tattoos For Your Inner Peace

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

When life becomes too much stressful, we need things find our inner peace and harmony with the world again. Why not zen tattoos?

Asian spiritualities and religions are full of elements that connect us with Nature and good feelings. The enso, for example, is one of the symbols of zen. This circle, made with one brushstroke, expresses the freedom of mind and its ability to create. Minimalistic and imperfect, the enso means enlightenment, and drawing it is a spiritual practice. We also associate things and objects with zen culture. The zen gardens, for example, with their pebbles, bonsaïs and torii. Buddha statues, with their peaceful faces, are also calming our nerves. But, there is nothing more soothing than Nature: gorgeous and harmonious flowers as well as innocent animals. But zen tattoos can only show you the way. A meditation tattoo can recall you to take the time to free your mind, but it won't have a magic effect on you. If you want to release yourself from stress, follow the teachings of Asian spirituality, admire Nature, surround yourself with beautiful things (such as tattoos!) and take a deep breath... Need some encouragement? We wish that these zen tattoos would relax you...
