The symbol is a unalome, a representation of the journey to reach enlightenment. The path starts in the centre of the spiral, and as you continue up or down this path you are wandering, becoming more conscious of your surroundings.
Some lotus unalome work for a doll of a client! I seriously had a blast trying to incorporate the lotus into the symbol thx for contacting me with this request UPDATE: Will be making these a temporary tattoo pack!
Spine tattoo idea ::: A lotus to represent a new beginning, or a hard time in life that has been overcome and the symbol "Hum" from the Buddhist mantra to stand for love, kindness and protection.this symbol is also said to purify hatred and anger.
