Zen is a school of Buddhism that originated in China and had the name Chan. Chan spread through sub-schools and branches and reached Japan․ Here it was called Zen. Zen’s teachings are based on several sources of Mahayana thought. ENSO is one of the Zen symbols, which means connection in Japanese.

It has the appearance of a circle, which seems to be painted with a brush. You can depict ENSO tattoo in two ways: open or closed. If it looks like a completely closed circle, then it symbolises perfection.

More often, people prefer to depict the ENSO tattoo open, which means an opportunity to improve and move forward. Tattooists usually draw ENSO with a single brushstroke.

It is almost impossible to always paint the same image without even the slightest deviation. There are typically slight differences between ENSO images․ That is why they are symbolic of the idea of imperfection.

Thus, this design, which seems very simple at first glance, is actually a very meaningful and important symbol. It means infinity, power, enlightenment, grace and emptiness. It represents the infinite power and splendour of the universe.

ENSO Tattoo Ideas

You can depict the ENSO tattoo both alone and in combination with other images. Basically, it is combined with the image of a tree or a lotus. If you see an image of a tree in the centre of ENSO, it means that the wearer of the tattoo accepts the Zen idea of accepting life as it is.

The combination with the lotus flower has a much more interesting interpretation. Since the lotus flower grows in swamps and marshes, this tattoo means that you are able to rise up and achieve a life that you consider perfect, even if it is not perfection at all for others.
