I got the tattoo in San Diego. The "om" symbol in the middle represents the connection of all life. The orchid pedals in Chinese culture are a symbol of one's ability to search within for the answers to all of life's questions. The reason I put any tattoo on my body is to use it as a reminder. During this particular session, I fell asleep in the artist's chair. Go figure.
