10 Rad Yoga-Inspired Tattoos


Are you inked? For some yogis, the body is a sacred vessel that mustn’t be tainted by earthly body art. For others, anything goes – the skin becomes a canvas where they could show images, thoughts and symbols that inspire their practice and their life.

Whether it’s a tiny infinity symbol on the ankle, Namaste scrawled on the inner arm, or lotus flowers blooming bold across the chest, yoga tattoos are a way of celebrating love, devotion and commitment to all things yoga.
