If you are looking for a tattoo that conveys peace, tranquil, and meditation, then you should add Buddha tattoo to your research book in addition to those peace symbols. Gautama Buddha, as you know, was the founder of Buddhism. The religion is known to be one of the world's most peaceful religions. Whether you believe in Buddhist preachings or not, a Buddhist tattoo on your skin straight away leaves an impression that you are one among many people who wish for peace and harmony in an otherwise chaotic world. Check these 12 amazing Buddha tattoos for inspiration. 
1.This Om-Buddha Tattoo

Tattoo enthusiasts often think Buddha tattoos need to be large, and they often decide against getting one because of their wrong assumption. A Buddha tattoo can be small or as creative as you can see here in the picture. The tattoo is an Om symbol with Buddha's mediating eyes patterned within the religious symbol. As you may know, Om is a holy symbol of all the major religions founded in India such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. Apparently, the tattoo also has pictorial reference to the other holy elements of Buddhism like lotus, holy lights, etc.

2.This Minimalistic Buddha Tattoo On Wrist

Unlike the previous Buddha tattoo, we have seen just now, the one in this picture depicts meditating Buddha completely. Visibly, it's not that big either. It fits nice and perfect on wrist, and if you are willing to get a minimalistic Buddha tattoo, this has to be it. The tattoo looks a bit peculiar on the wrist, so, and if you feel the same, you can have it in some other place like arm, shoulder, back, or just below the neck. However, if you are a fan of 3D and colorful tattoos, scroll down to see more Buddha tattoo options.

3.This 3D Buddha Tattoo

This Gautama Buddha tattoo has to be one of the best on this topic. It's 3D-ish, colorful, and that Lotus, in particular, is very impressive. It just has that wow factor that many tattoo enthusiasts want to have in their body art. Buddha's face looks a bit different in the picture, though. Gautama Buddha is often depicted to have sharp facial features, but here in this tattoo, he seems a little uncharacteristic with his plump cheeks. If you are planning to get a Buddha tattoo, make sure your tattoo artist gets the facial features of the God right.

4.This Full Arm Buddha Tattoo

It is a fabulous Buddhist tattoo as well. Besides being cultural or religious, this tattoo boasts touch of elegance with elements of abstract in it. The ink splash just behind Buddha's art is astonishing. The Buddha's face here in this tattoo is accurate unlike the previous one. There's reference to Lotus in this picture as well, which is nice. Remember, whenever you choose to have God as tattoo, always prefer to have some relevant religious symbols to be part of the tattoo. Lotus, lights, beads, etc. make a Buddha tattoo even more spectacular.

5.This Weird But Wonderful Buddha Tattoo

The reason why we call this tattoo weird is Buddha lacks a visible face here. Instead, there's Om on his face encircled in an inverted triangle. We aren't sure if the person in the image is a man or woman, but inverted triangle often represents women and feminism. Buddha is seen holding Earth with one hand and what seems like a "third eye" with the other. It appears the person is trying to convey a complicated message with this tattoo that we believe only Buddhists are going to get it.

6.This Strange But Interesting Fusion

We must admit that this is indeed a sophisticated tattoo, as it has an incredibly rich design. We appreciate the tattoo artist for having a steady arm and sharp eye for detail. What's interesting, though, is that mash-up of Lord Buddha and a burning skull. Buddha, as you all know, preached peace and harmony, and he was highly against violence. Here, in this picture, the skull on fire perhaps means something else from that guy's perspective. From what we can see, it does look a bit strange.

7.This Colorful And Wonderful Buddhist Tattoo

This has to be one of the nicest tattoos of the topic, if not, THE BEST. The tattoo depicts Buddha, Lotus, birds, and a lot of greenery. It highlights the eternal connection between Buddhism and nature. The colors of this tattoo are amazing. They look very realistic, and the whole image conveys peace and serenity the moment we look at it. The tattoo artist clearly did a wonderful job. If you are looking for a fullback Buddha tattoo, look no further. Take this tattoo as an inspiration and get a tattoo like this.

8.This Simple Buddha Tattoo

In case if you only want to have small Buddha tattoo, as opposed to fullback or full-arm tattoo, this tattoo should be an inspiration for you. Apparently, it only depicts the face of meditating Buddha with his eyes closed. If you still find this tattoo bigger than what you are willing to get, you may have to pass on this tattoo because a Buddha's face-only tattoo doesn't look attractive when it's small.

9.This Buddha Tattoo For Girls

If you are a female looking for a Buddha tattoo, you have to think about a design like this. The Buddha's face looks feminine, and the placement of the tattoo has made it more girl-friendly. Whether you are a boy or girl, you need to make sure you ink Buddha tattoos on appropriate body places. Having them at inappropriate places like legs, feet, etc. can be offending to religious people, especially when you travel to those Buddhist countries in Asia.

10.Yet Another Minimalistic Buddha Tattoo

The reason why we have had our focus on minimalistic tattoos because they are cheap, look good, and importantly, they don't make one a subject of criticism or constant judging. Irrespective of what the tattoo is, most people find individuals with big tattoos weird. It's fine as long as you have body art on coverable places like back or stomach, but when you are planning get tattoos on visible body parts like arms, wrists, etc. you need to be extra cautious.

11.This Creative Buddha Tattoo

"When you want a Buddha tattoo, but music is your life!" 
We must admit that this tattoo has to be the most creative one on this topic. It's a beautiful fusion of personal and religious beliefs. Buddha with headphones actually looks intriguing here. As said earlier, you can experiment with Buddha tattoos if you live in the West, but if you are a frequenter to Asian countries, make sure your depiction of Buddha doesn't hurt the religious sentiments of people living over there. There is no problem with Buddha listening to music, but stay away from depictions that show him doing bad things like smoking, drinking etc.

12.Gautama Buddha Under Bodhi Tree

Bodhi tree has tremendous cultural significance in the Buddhist religion. Besides Lotus, beads, lily pad, lights, etc. Bodhi tree is also an important aspect of the religion. In fact, Gautama Buddha received enlightenment under a Bodhi tree, and by having it as a tattoo, you convey people that you are on your path to enlightenment. The Buddha's face in the tattoo looks unusual, though. Buddha here seems more like a Chinese person here, where in reality, Buddha is a brown-skinned Indian with sharp facial features.
