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.
It's your choice to decide whether to drown in your troubles or to courageously survive. the harder the troubles the more spirited you become in the end ~The deeper the mud the more beautiful the lotus blooms~ New Beginnings. I LOVE my new tattoo ☺️
Unalome tattoos are first spiritual symbols. In Buddhism, they ar e the visual image of reaching enlightnment. The spiral means our struggle with life, while the straight line shows that we have finally found harmony.
