Surprisingly enough, when I asked the waitress at Delicious where she got her interesting (and very new) tattoo, turns out my friend Kit from Deluxe tattoo is responsible! Small world...
The most widely known mandala form in Japan is the Ryokai Mandala (Two World Mandala). Sometimes also pronounced as Ryogai Mandala. It is composed of two separate mandala, which together represent the central devotional images of Esoteric Buddhism in Japan. The Taizokai (Womb World Mandala, Sanskrit = Garbhadhatu) is based on the Dainichikyo Sutra, while the Kongokai (Daimond World Mandala, Sanskrit = Vajradhatu) is based on the Kongochokyo Sutra.

Charlie Morley is an acclaimed Lucid Dream teacher in both Europe and South Africa. He follows Tibetan Buddhism which sees lucid dreaming as prepatory practice for death. The sanskrit mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" is also tattooed on his skin - it is a mantra used to enrich the mind with compassion when it is either seen, or spoken. The photo was taken at 3am, the time to wake yourself up during REM sleep to enable yourself to have a lucid dream. His tattoo is highlighted by blue fibre-optics - blue being one of the five colours (pancha-varna) that symbolises a peaceful state of mind, a part of the mantra word Hum, and is the colour of the Medicin Buddha for healing. I met Charlie after being diagnosed with my illness and have been greatly affected by his presence in my life since.
