5 Discrete Spirituality Tattoo Ideas For Men

Many people are turning to spirituality as a way to explore and express their true selves and their bond with the universe. One form of expression is through tattoo art.

Tattoos are often custom-designed for individuals, though many people are turning to the internet for ideas, inspiration, and even help with designing their tattoos.

As you might have already seen, social media is filled with Buddha heads framed in flowers and similar art. However in this article we’re going to dive a bit deeper and look for the less “mainstream” designs.

So let’s jump into the 5 most interesting and discrete spiritual tattoo ideas for men!

Om Tattoo

Although we might be dipping our toes in the mainstream spiritual tattoos a little bit, Om is almost synonymous with spirituality.

AUM is everything. It is the source, vibration, and consciousness of the universe.

If you’re looking for a discrete spiritual tattoo, you really can’t go wrong with this one!

Lord Shiva Tatoo

Lord Shiva tattoo is definitely one of the best tattoo options to choose from. He is usually considered the destroyer of the negative energy amongst us.

Shiva is the third god in the Hindu triumvirate. The triumvirate consists of three gods who are responsible for the creation, upkeep and destruction of the world. The other two gods are Brahma and Vishnu.

Brahma is the creator of the universe while Vishnu is the preserver of it. Shiva’s role is to destroy the universe in order to re-create it.

Deep Meditation Tattoo

Meditation is often linked to spirituality. That is because meditation is a tool that helps us become increasingly aware of the self / the consciousness that is witnessing all.

When the noise in our minds starts to fade, we are able to connect with the universe on a deeper level. That’s why going for some kind of meditation tattoo is always a good option when you’re looking for a spiritual tattoo!

I agree that the circles on top aren’t exactly discrete, so that’s a matter of personal preference.

The dance between head and heart

While the head and the heart may not always agree on things, they are the score to our orchestra of life. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to experience the beauty of the world as human beings.

Whether the heart and brain play the lower notes which cause pain and sadness or play the higher notes which cause joy and absolute bliss, one thing is for sure, they make life very interesting. When you know how to handle them they can create wonderful things.

This tattoo is a perfect depiction of handling both the brain and heart.

Breathe Sanskrit Symbol Tattoo

The ancient Sanskrit symbol is a beautiful reminder to do what comes naturally. It’s the first thing we do when we come into this world, and it will be the last when we leave it.

This discrete tattoo is a great starter when you’re new to tattoos!
