This Tibetan Mantra is '
Om mani padme hum
' or some say 'Om mani padme hung', is called the six syllable or Mani mantra. The Tibetan translation is 'Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus. This is the Mantra of Chenrezig, the deity of compassion in the Tibet language or Avalokateshvara in Sanskrit.
This Tibetan design is written in the U-med script. The Tibetan translation of this is 'without head' or written Tibetan words. Most of the pictures here are 'with head' or considered printing.
Tibetan words; two Buddhist terms written in U-chen.
Sanskrit 'Hum' syllable in Tibetan U-chen script.
Om Mani Padme Hum
In Tibetan Buddhist Art there are many forms of expression.
From a Buddhist perspective the 'Dharma' or the Buddhist Teachings can be expressed in any language. One of the
basic beliefs of Buddhism
is to try to 'be present' at all times as this woman's tattoo says.
Although I do think that it's in a very awkward place for her to be reminded of this bit of wisdom on a daily basis!
