Once again we’ve rounded up a list with the best tattoos internet has ever seen to give you the ink inspiration to suit your story and style. With all those gorgeous designs out there, we know it can be tough to find the tattoo that’s perfect for you.

As you already know if you’ve been reading us, we’re addicted to the needle and we like those tattoos that visually impress through design but also have a rich symbolism behind. Mandala tattoos definitely fit into this category so we decided to make a list with 50 of the most beautiful Mandala tattoo designs we’ve seen and at the same time to explain the symbolism behind this sacred & timeless pattern.

First of all, what is a Mandala? If you haven’t known, the Mandala is Sanskrit for “Magic Circle” and many cultures since the ancient times use it as an expression of the Sacred Universe, where all life forms spiral into life like that of a Mandala.

A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. Mandalas are circular designs symbolizing the notion that life is never ending.

Circles are at the heart of a Mandala, even a square or triangle seems to dominate. These symbols offer visual elements that balance and represent harmony and unity. The Mandala is extremely versatile and can carry a number of meanings that are limited only by the creator and the observer. The overall goal of a Mandala is to be a tool on one’s spiritual journey.

Now let’s move on Mandala tattoos. All in all, the best decision when designing a Mandala tattoo is to choose colors, symbols and shapes that have a special meaning to you. Many choose to incorporate their favorite colors, religious or spiritual symbols or animals, their age or other items of significance to their lives.

If you opt for a Mandala tattoo you should also know that due to the geometric nature of these tattoos, when considering where to place it, it is important to get a place with fewer folds so as to avoid distorting the image.

Mandala has become a trending tattoo subject in the modern times and we continue to alter it to our own liking. Rich in symbolism and with a beautiful design, a Mandala tattoo – if properly done – can really make a statement.
