Dhamma Tattoos

Postby convivium » Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:14 pm

Any suggestions, images, or location recommendations?
West Coast, USA?
Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

Save your money - or dana it to a monastery or charity instead.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Your avatar photo would be a great tattoo.

harm no one nor have them harmed.

Copy it onto "temporary tattoo" paper, smack it on your back (that's where I would put it), and have the tattoo artist trace over it with real needle and ink. Of course, it would take an artist experienced in calligraphy, but I don't think they would need to know the script. But then I am not a tattoo artist, so I have no idea if that can be done. Somewhere on DW there is another thread about tattoos, and I voted for sabbe satta sukhi hontu then, too. :twothumbsup:

Buddho is something cool and calm. It's the path for giving rise to peace and contentment — the only path that will release us from the suffering and stress in this world.
