The Buddha on Wall Street

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Cyrus, a visitor from Olso, Norway. He had this magnificent tattoo to share with us:

Cyrus got this at 1969 Tattoo, in Oslo, from a Thai artist working there named Noi Siamese III.

"I like the art, first of all," Cyrus told me, "and I think Buddhism is inspiring."

The quality of this work is astounding, from the beauty of the lotus at the bottom, to the distinct pop of the green leaves at the top, both serving to frame the great black and gray face of Buddha. It really was a pleasure to stumble upon a tattoo as lovely as this.

Thanks to Cyrus for sharing his inspiring tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
