Title: Meditation Tattoo Idea
Post by: PsychedOut on April 18, 2019, 03:03:44 PM
Hey there everyone,

So I was thinking about getting my first tattoo (left shoulder), but wanted to run the concept by people to see if it makes sense. So the theme is "Balance is Key", which should be self explanatory. Originally I was thinking of just getting a key that said "Balance" on it, but now I think I want a door that is moderately ajar with the key sticking in it. I'm trying to figure out if there should be darkness when the door is open, or something else? Essentially for me, the thought is that once you have a consistent balance in life, then the possibilities are endless. So the "Balance key" opens you up to the world of endless options and potential happiness if that makes sense? I'm not sure if that makes sense or not, so please let me know!

And if anyone has any better ideas to represent balance, then I am all ears.

Thank you :)

How about the wheel as a symbol of balance? The wheel is an ancient traditional buddhist symbol denoting the dharma.
