    Adam and crew,
    Digging the symbolism section. Explaining the general meaning of something so subjective could not have been easy. Nice job to all involved.

    Awesome, ditto for the tattoo 101. You are really elevating the tattoo world. One little thing. A friend who has studied taoism for 20 years says that the ying/yang symbol is called a Tai Chi.

    Please add the Dharma Wheel:
    The dharmachakra is a Buddhist emblem of Hindu origin. It resembles a wagon wheel with eight spokes, each representing one of the eight tenets of buddhist belief. The circle symbolizes the completeness of the Dharma, the spokes represent the eightfold path leading to enlightenment:Right faith, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right endeavor, right mindfullness, and right meditation.

    It is drawn from an Indian symbol, but instead of representing Samsara, or endless rebirth, it symbolizes overcoming obstacles.

    Thanks, Pasta Boy!
