I can’t wait to get a tattoo. I’ve been doing a lot of sketches of what I want, and now I have a basic idea.
Since I’ve been into Buddhism for a long time now, I want my version of the bodhi tree.
The tree represents enlightenment and liberation. Later in life when I start my own family, I’ll add the moon and stars. The half moons being my soulmate and I, and a star for each child I have.
I would love to add a small mantra on the bottom that says “May we find our own peace.” but I would like it only in the Sanskrit language. I have no idea where to go to get it translated right.
Anyway, I can’t wait to get it. This is something I will most likely love for the rest of my life.
