9. Sankalpa Tattoo:The practice of sankalpa, otherwise known as 鈥渞esolve,鈥 offers an Eastern聽alternative to the Western 鈥渞esolution.鈥 Rather than believing you聽should change to achieve your聽purpose in life, it proposes you are already who you need to be to fulfill those goals. Simply put, all you need is focus to find that purpose, and get this tattoo, of course.

10. Hamsa +聽Ganesh Tattoo: If you can鈥檛 decide between two symbols that mean a lot to you, why not merge聽them, like this Hamsa + Ganesh tattoo? That way you can combine good fortunes from both of these talismanic characters.

14.聽Lotus and Chakra Tattoo: From the base of the聽spine to the top of the head, the seven chakras represent the centers of your body through which energy flows. Keep your body and mind in alignment聽with this symbolic tattoo of the seven chakras.
