Japanese Tattoos

34/366 of my 2012 365 Project. This is a tattoo on my forearm, it is from a japanese painting I located, and it is my favorite Enso. I had the tattoo artist recreate the brush strokes as closely as feasible, as its lack of continuity is portion of its authenticity. Ensō (円相) is a Japanese word meaning &quotcircle&quot and a idea strongly connected with Zen. Ensō is one particular of the most frequent subjects of Japanese calligraphy even although it is a symbol and not a character. It symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void it can also symbolize the Japanese aesthetic itself. As an &quotexpression of the moment&quot it is usually deemed a kind of minimalist expressionist art.
