“As time goes by, we become wiser and more mature, at least that’s what we think happens yet there’s 1 person we know who seems to have it all figured out. They’re confident people who appear to achieve all their goals; while we still feel like teenagers consumed by fears, insecurities & contradictions. But the truth is that we’re all the same: we have irrational fears keeping us from fulfilling our dreams. We’re always constantly looking at others as if we’re in a full competition. Each scar or wrinkle tells us a story. The same way tattoos can be a reflection of our deepest emotions& those moments that defines us.
A unalome, a symbol that holds each individuals transcendence in this planet. It represents our existence in this earthly place & awareness of our role in life. It’s about analyzing our actions & learning from them in order to reach the true meaning of benevolence. It represents the path each person takes through their life. That road can be straight, circular or winding. It might be filled with anxiety, fear, terror, happiness or love. This path begins at the center of a spiral which represents the way we’re trapped in our weakness, fear & uncertainty. As the path unfolds, the mind finds clarity, eventually freeing itself from the cycle of suffering.
When you learn to see yourself from a more objective standpoint. You’ll realize you’re attached to a web of emotions that cloud your mind. However, since we are merely human being who tend to commit the same mistakes over& over again. It’s not easy to abandon that cycle. That’s what the spiral represents that inability of letting ourselves go completely. The pursuit of enlightenment is what straightens the line of the spiral. It’s visual metaphor of that journey; the ultimate goal & combination of our search for self-awareness. Finally, the dot that appears far away from the rest represents the uncertainty of life. We ignore the final truth & even if we can’t perceive it, it does exist. This is the ultimate reward life can give us. We keep moving forward to become better humans.”
