The word Buddha is a Sanskrit word which means The Awakened One: One who is awakened to reality, who understands the true nature of the mind, the world and all sentient beings.

The Tattooed Buddha strives to be an open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
