What is tattoo Tuesday about?

May 12, 2020

Although traditionally regarded as a symbol of  Eastern religions such as Tantric Buddhism, Shintoism, and Jainism,  mandalas (mandala = circle in Sanscrit) are found in many cultures, such as Mesoamerican, Native American, and Scandavian, among others.

In addition, mandalas have been adopted by some modern western people as a symbol of wholeness or the universe.

In his autobiography, psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, … which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time. … Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: … the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.”

Mandalas can be beautiful and striking in design which, no doubt adds to their appeal.
