Many animals have different meanings in different cultures, religions and philosophies. On the one hand, we feel connected to them and yet often cannot fully understand them.

# 5 Indian motifs

The Native Americans, mistakenly named Indians by Christopher Columbus, are known to us for their culture, which was in harmony with nature and valued all life. Various motifs such as feathers as jewelry, dream catchers and tools are therefore particularly popular.

"Om" comes from the Vedic language, a preform of Sanskrit. The sound of the syllable is considered sacred in Buddhism and Hinduism. If you do yoga, meditate or see this symbol as a sign of complete relaxation and deceleration, the Om tattoo may be an interesting motif for you. Here you can see it embedded in a flower:

Boho tattoos are much more about the style in which the tattoos are engraved. Mandala, arrow and peace - these are the most famous symbols in the boho style.

# 9 compass

"Compass?" - "He'll show you the right way if you're lost." This quote from “Disney's Pocahontas” may be one of the reasons why many people have this nautical instrument pricked. But otherwise this symbol is also very popular with seafarers. A compass shows the cardinal points and helps you to find your way in a foreign country. Our inner compass should guide us to the right decisions. Here you can see a motif with the typical leaves from the Disney movie in comic style:

# 10 Buddha

Siddhartha Gautama was the man whose teaching established Buddhism. Buddha is his honorary title, but in Buddhism people are also referred to as Buddha who have experienced awakening or enlightenment according to this teaching. This person has achieved the purity and perfection of his mind on his own and thus achieved a limitless development of all potentials present in him. The image of the first Buddha is therefore a symbol for the search for one's own enlightenment and is therefore also popular as a tattoo motif:

# 11 mandala

A mandala is a geometric diagram that has a religious meaning in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is usually square or circular and oriented towards a center point. It can also embody the entire universe with heaven, earth and underworld. Sand mandalas in particular have a meaning in Buddhism: They stand for the transience of life and the renunciation of the material world:
