Ohm Tattoo Symbolism


Ohm Symbolism

Totality, Sustaining, Perpetuation, Oneness, Sacred Trinity, Sacred, Divine Expression, Indestructible word (truth), Creation, Evolution, Manifestation

The om symbol (a.k.a.: ohm, aum, omkar) is one such symbol

There are theories that the core of existence vibrates at a set-point. From an abyss of nothingness there is uttered a divine call. It is as if the cosmic mouth opens and presses out a sweet song of creation across the void.

The three-part verbal expression of the om is symbolic of so much. The advent and culmination of triangular principles like: dawn, afternoon, dusk, creation, sustaining, destruction, conscious, unconscious, subconscious

The om is expressed most commonly in Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism.


The mantra "OM" is the name of God, the vibration of the Supreme. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Bhrahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction)


Sanskrit letters or symbol for the "sacred" Hindu sound om (ohm or aum) called "the mother of all mantras. Apparently, the four parts symbolize four stages of consciousness: Awake, sleeping, dreaming, and a trance or transcendental state. 

The om tattoo symbolism conveys a reverence for life, an honor for creation and an understanding of the divine motion of the Universe.
