Mandala Tattoos

Asia Argento


Asia Argento got her left upper arm tattooed shortly after the right in May 2015.  The ornamental designs on her chest and both arms are all the creations off Marco Manzo and Francesca Boni. “Thank you for making me one of your living canvases #Respect #admiration,” she writes.

The beads and shield on the top of both shoulders are the same, but the left arm has a spiral mandala design.

Amira McCarthy mandala arm tattoo

Amira McCarthy gave her own twist to a traditional mandala design by putting a yin-yang symbol in the center. The mandala is a symbol that represents the universe in both Hinduism and Buddhism, while the yin-yang (also known as a taijitu) is a Taoist symbol which represents opposites existing in harmony. Artist Archie at Hammersmith Tattoo did the tattoo in July 2014.
