The Tattooed Buddha started out as a personal blog by Buddhist author Ty Phillips.
What started out as a showcase for his writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community, and The Tattooed Buddha was born. Although the original mission was to remove the commercialization seen in modern American Buddhism, it has turned into an open dialogue for evolved approaches for dealing with day to day living, community building, relationships, interfaith, and even arts and entertainment.
The focus of our community has become a platform for authors to express their voices without the confines of specific labeling while remaining in touch with the root foundation of non-commercialized wellness and living.
The writing shared is thought provoking, moving, funny, and even at times sad as we tackle the true issues that every human being will encounter.
We invite you to join us on this journey; to set down the fixed notion of labels, and join hand in hand with us as we share and experience life together.
