In some traditional culture, religious tattoos are very popular. People have used it for years to define themselves and also to show others the faith or the God they chose to follow. Some of the most popular religious tattoos are the Buddha tattoo designs. They have been found mostly among Asian cultures including countries such as China, Thailand, Nepal and India.
The real name of Buddha was Siddhartha Gautama and after he achieved enlightenment, people associated him with a God like creature; with someone who has supreme knowledge and great power. People therefore use Buddha tattoos to signify wealth, peace and blessings. They also stand as a symbol of enlightenment and strength of one’s character.
