Buddhas, bodhisattvas, tantric gods and goddesses, wrathful dharma protectors, demons and Asian calligraphy are favorite tattoo subjects around the world. The Buddhism Body Art Project is dedicated to presenting Buddhist tattoos sent in by About.com Buddhism readers and others.
The photo gallery will remain open for new contributions. If you'd like your or your friend's tattoo to be included, please email me with the image attached. The ideal image should be at least 730k in size (smaller will be considered if it's really good) and be clearly in focus. The tattoo should have a real Buddhist theme, not something Asian or generic martial arts. I will need permission from the photographer and, preferably, of the person whose body part is in the photo. I'd like also to know the name of the tattoo artist.
