In progress work of my newest Unalome Tattoo. Unalome tattoos are first spiritual symbols. In Buddhism, they are the visual image of reaching enlightnment. The spiral means our struggle with life, while the straight line shows that we have finally found harmony. #unalometattoo #unalome #hmong
Each Hmong tribal symbol holds its own significant meaning. From the elephant's foot print symbolizing strength, the seeds symbolizing abundance, to the house steps symbolizing unity. 1 sheet contains 13 tribal textile symbols.
