Daruma Dolls Tattoos Meanings and Pictures
Represents Bodhidharma, an Indian monk who founded Zen Buddhism in China. This monk Buddhist has attained"enlightenment" after meditating for a nine year period. Legend has it that he remained without moving or closing his eyes during the process, making it impossible for the eyelids to close by removing them. This tattoo has a very spiritual meaning and is normally done in two phases, starting by painting only one eye of the Daruma, then making a wish and only after that the other eye is painted.
