Infinite Friendship Tattoo Design

Often the meaning behind a tattoo choice, the sharing of the experience, can be as important as the image itself. These women have been best friends for 25 years, and they chose to come together to get the Infinite Friendship tattoo. Simple and meaningful to them, no matter how far part their lives take them this will always bind them together.

Unalome Buddhist tattoo design

The Unalome symbol represents the path to enlightenment in the Buddhist tradition. The spirals symbolize the twists and turns in life, the straight lines the clear light of death when one has the unique opportunity to see ones true nature, face to face.
