Mandalas have become a hot trend for tattoo artists to play with! From the bright and colourful to the simplistic black and white, we're spotting them all over our Instagram feed, and it's easy to tell why. Besides their obvious beauty, they are meaningful too, and the message behind the mandala is pretty deep. 

Circles form the foundation of mandalas - in fact, the word mandala means 'circle' in Sanskrit. Ideas of balance and symmetry come to mind, and as every part of a mandala that emerges from the centre circle is equal, there is no part that is more important than the other. Mandalas represent wholeness, and connects us with the idea that we are all one. Beautiful!
