Tibetan Tattoos - Love

Love

Hi,

a few years back (when I was young and stupid)I got a Tibetan tattoo on my left inner wrist that supposedly translated as "love". I'm not so sure it means that anymore, because when I got it...
I didn't really do my research on the meaning.
I have recognized from the alphabet that it has the letter "pa" and the first letter looks a little like ja" (I don't know how to type the line above the "j")
could you please help me out with the meaning of my tattoo? Thanks!

Hi Anna,
What a lovely tattoo you have and yes, it does mean 'love'. Sometimes it is written with another letter or prefix in front of it, other times, just like you have.
I would love to put this up on my website if that's alright.

Could you tell me a little more about when and why you got it?

You could write your own page about it if you like here:

All the best,
Patricia


Hi Patricia

I got this Tibetan tattoo when I was 17 or 18. It was a birthday present from someone. The reason I chose the Tibetan language was simply because I thought the Tibetan culture was so intriguing. I loved the way it was written. I chose 'love' because it is such a strong word in any culture.
