Ensō Zen Circles is an art form that is practiced amongst Zen Buddhists. It symbolizes absolute spiritual enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void. Only a person who is mentally and spiritually complete can draw a true Ensō with one stroke. I always thought this would be a cool tattoo idea.

Enso tattoo. Zen Buddhist symbol of enlightenment, clarity, balance and life. My brother has this.

Ensō is a Japanese word meaning "circle" and a concept strongly associated with Zen. It symbolizes enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void. Ensō symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body/spirit create. The ensō is not separate, but is part of something greater; imperfection is an essential and inherent aspect of existence.
