This belief in reincarnation leads us to our next Hindu term – karma. Lucky for us, this one is bit more familiar. In very simplified terms, karma is the Hindu belief that a person’s actions in life will determine their fate in the next life. If a person is kind and selfless in this life, they’ll be rewarded in the next. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true. If a person is a scoundrel today, let’s just say they’ll be paying for it in their next tomorrow! Although our culture doesn’t always use the word karma, vestiges of it are apparent in phrases like, ‘What goes around comes around,’ or ‘He sure got what was coming to ’em!’
To understand moksha, which means ‘liberation,’ one must first understand several other important ideas in Hinduism – particularly, samsara. Samsara is a Sanskrit word that refers to the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, to the passing of the soul from one life to another. As the soul transitions between these lives, the next incarnation is informed by the deeds of the previous life. This is the Hindu belief of the concept of karma. You may have heard people talk about karma and the idea that people’s choices will come back to affect them one way or another in the future. The Hindu concept of karma is similar to the popular use, but a person’s responsibility for her/his actions, good or bad, is dealt with in the next life, not the current one.
Everyone has their own personal meanings attached to their tattoos and this one is customised and free hand tattoo which was personal yet close for my client
Someone has said that the love of a family is life’s greatest blessing. Well, nothing could be nearer to the truth than this statement.The worth of a family is too great to be put into words but tattoos are a good way of expressing love and gratitude. People wear their love and pride for their family on their bodies.
This is one of the sweetest and most meaningful tattoos out there. I mean how can you not love this? A daughter honoring love for her parents by declaring a permanent piece of art. You can’t go wrong with that. Only a person with a hardened heart wouldn’t appreciate this. This tattoo is not just endearing, it is also symbolic and in a way very reassuring that love can and should be flaunted.
The message of this piece alone is worth the pain, time and yeah money to have this done. It’s not to say that this tattoo isn’t beautifully executed because it is. What I’m trying to get at is that at its very core, this piece of art was done to express and not really to impress.
“Love means parents”
The tiger’s eye is more than gemstone; it is a symbol of Focus, Patience, and Determination. A Tiger Eye Tattoo symbolizes your most primitive desires; you are moving and thinking simply on instinct and drive. The eye of the tiger represents the animal in its purest state; it is stalking, hungry, focused, and, most importantly, lethal.
