How You Can Make Your Own Mandala Tattoo

Love mandalas but can't seem to find the perfect one? Why not just create your own? Nope, you don't need an art degree on this one.

Mandalas have become a classic tattoo design in the past few years since the rise of tattoo hype in social media. What can we say, mandalas are glorious to look at. They're great for tattoo ideas whether you're opting for a mandala mainly for ornamental purposes or something else. But mandalas tend to look a lot like one another these days and they seem to be losing their edge. But if you can't seem to find the mandala you actually like enough to be permanently etched on your skin, why not come up with your own?

I know what you're thinking. And yes, we've tried drawing a mandala before. And no, it wasn't pretty. But what if we tell you that you don't need years of practice and art tools and whatnot to achieve a close-to-perfect mandala?

We recently saw this mesmerizing gif of a man drawing a mandala flawlessly on a touch drawing tablet. We checked out the original reddit thread and we saw a couple options to achieve a perfect mandala without the tablet nor the application the man in the gif was using. I found MyOats the easiest one to use.

Here are the few ones I've tried with the tool:
