    The buddhist chant "om mani padme hum" written in sanskrit. When spoken properly, or read with a clear mind, the mere utterance of those syllables is said to induce serenity, paradise, etc etc....

    This, verticle, down the spine between the shoulder blades...

    sounds good, I don't know if sanskrit is written vertically but it will look nice I'm sure. Just the letters or anything else?

    If there's any artists around, maybe someone would want to try to render it vertically? Just to see how it looks? That was my thought too, I've never seen sanskrit written vertically...

    between the shoulder blades really won't be too hard in terms of pain. It's a pretty small tat unless you were planning to do like a 2 foot long vertical text thing ;)

    I'd concentrate more on if you really want it than if you have the balls :)

    print it out and put it where you can see it EVERY DAY for a long time... if you don't get tired of it after 6 months to a year, then do it

    you'll wish you went bigger if you get it that size, but I love the idea, has definite potential

    I agree. I think it'll look better bigger.

    maybe even bigger? I personally like the idea of it going all the way down your spine. If that's not your thing, then yes, that's a good size

    Yeah, I really like how the bigger one looks too....right down the middle....

    Thing I'm worried about, I'm only 20, and I've always been somewhat conservative....my family is very conservative....not sure how they'd take something that big.....

    I have some thinking to do!
