Last summer, while shopping at a Cost Plus World Market in Brooklyn, I met Stephanie, who shared this lovely tattoo:
Stephanie explained that this is a depiction of Benzaiten, a Japanese Buddhist goddess, who evolved from the Hindu goddess Saraswati. Stephanie was a liberal arts major and Benzaiten is a guardian of poetry and music. She has eight arms, each with a weapon. Benzaiten stares out from her left arm powerfully.
Stephanie credited the tattoo to the great Darren Rosa (@darrenthedude_tattoos) at Rising Dragon Tattoo (@risingdragontattoos) in Manhattan.
Thanks to Stephanie for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
