58 Amazing Mandala Tattoo Design Ideas

If you are a religious or spiritual person and want to get inked, a mandala tattoo is right for you!

Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol originating in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. It is used in various rituals, religions and for meditation.

The term mandala is inherited from Sanskrit and means “circle”. The basic form of a mandala is a circular chart that maintains a certain symmetry, powerfully focusing on the center, with the typical structure dividing its surface into four equal segments.

In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically.

Due to their intricate geometries and their powerful meanings, these concentric symbols are a great source of inspiration in tattoo art. They are suitable tattoo designs for religious people because of their deep spiritual meaning, and mandala tattoos can be customized for both men and women.

Since the geometry offers endless possibilities, your mandala tattoo definitely can be unique. Browse below through our selection of 40 mandala tattoos and get inspired for your next tattoo!
