Pagodas are large religious structures that can be seen in many countries in Asia and contain sacred Buddhist relics. Their design is simple but impressive. A traditional Buddhist would never get this (or any other) tattoo, but admiration and respect for pagodas went beyond borders, arrived in other cultures, and some people decided to get them tattooed.
Respect for religion
You should know that, although it is an architectural structure of incredible aesthetics, its function goes far beyond mere beauty. This is why wearing a tattoo that represents a pagoda must be truly meaningful: you must respectfully choose a location on the body suited to the motif.
Learn about the history and meaning of the design you are considering getting tattooed and think long before taking action. You should always do it with respect and remember that religion is sacred to many people. It is not a fashion.
Pagoda tattoos ideas
A pagoda tattoo must be large, representative and attract attention. Just like pagodas in reality. If you already have an idea of your favorite pagoda, there are many things that can help you complete the tattoo.
What could be better to accompany this imposing work than the image of Buddha, his hands, his emptying or his whole figure? It's a great way to enhance your pagoda tattoo, get inspired!
Plants always go very well with tattoos. If you have chosen a fairly simple pagoda and want to highlight it, a Japanese cherry tree (Sakura) will be the ideal accompaniment. These trees that bloom in spring and embellish everything with their delicate appearance are perfect for completing a pagoda tattoo.
The lotus flower is one of the elements that symbolize the purity of the soul; it is not only a magnificent plant but it is very important in Buddhism. You can use one as the base of your pagoda or surround your design with many of these flowers.
