Buddha at the NYC Tattoo Convention

Sometimes when you go to tattoo shows, you don't always get the full story behind people's work. For many people; it is just art for art's sake, and people like me, who ask "What does it mean?" can be annoying little nuisances.

Here's a piece I spotted at the NYC Tattoo Convention earlier this month. I took the photos and I met the artist, but I'll let the work speak for itself:

This is a Buddha tattoo by Sid Lopes at 7 Tattoo Gallery in Newark, New Jersey. Here's a different angle with less glare and a better shot of the om symbol:

And then a better perspective of the paint-splattered lotus blossoms:

I never caught the name of the wearer of this tattoo, but I did get a chance to profess my admiration of it to the artist.

Thanks to Sid Lopes for sharing his work with us here on Tattoosday!
