Om Tattoo Meaning – What is Om?

Om Tattoo meaning – the om is a Sanskrit symbol/sound. Altough the om is a religious symbol (buddhism, jainism and hinduism), you don’t need to believe in those religions/ideas to have your tattoo. Because the om is a religious symbol, the main meaning of this tattoo/symbol is “sacred“. It’s also a symbol of believe/balance and connection (everything is connected). The om also represents the “Universe” and how big it is. Also, the om tattoo is related to cultural appropriation (just like the hamsa hand tattoo). But, let’s see a couple of om tattoo pictures. Maybe you will choose one of these for your next tattoo:
