One New Experience Each Week - Buddhist Tattoo

Yes, I finally inked "Om Mani Padme Hum" on my body
The Tibetan Mantra of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva.
While I was choosing a tattoo studio, I walked past a studio with the statue of Goddess of Mercy (The Chinese manifestation of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva), and I immediately felt that it is the right place to be inked. Not surprisingly, one of the tattoo artists also has the same tattoo. 
This is my 2nd tattoo and it has equally deep meaning for me as my first tattoo.  And I am very happy to have this tattoo accompanying me till the end of my journey.

Ying: I got it at my lower back.
PY: Thanks. Glad that I did it, I wanted to do it during our trip in Nepal.

Nice.. has tattooing become an addiction yet? That's what people say - get one and you'll always feel like getting more.
