Quirk of the Week: Solar Plexus Tattoos
As you may already know, I don’t have any tattoos but I do love a good tattoo. In the last month or so I’ve been into solar plexus tattoos A LOT! I love them, I think it’s the best area to get a tattoo for a woman. If you have some boobs to frame it all nicely, better. If you don’t, it will look beautiful anyway. (I don’t. XD)
I think that my solar plexus tattoo mania and my Hamsa (Fatima’s Hand) obsession started in the same place at the same moment: it was her. She’s an amazing young woman who’s been through a lot and she creates very nice jewellery.
I’m some kind of spiritual girl if you hadn’t already noticed (have you read this one, you?) so every time I have an obsession about something, I dig deeper to find out why.
I wasn’t thinking about chakras at all until last week, but I already was addicted on these “stomach tattoos”. That’s how I called them, until I bumped into some chakras articles and I realized that body area was called solar plexus and that it has a chakra.
The manipura chakra is related to the color yellow (I’ve recently changed my living room and guess what? Everything is yellow.), it is related to the scent of lemon (guess which oil i’m always burning on my essence burner these days?) its gem is citrine (guess what I had as a recent gift? Yes, a citrine quartz point.) and an unbalanced solar plexus chakra brings on digestive problems (hi, that’s me!). Manipura’s element is fire, and I’m always lighting candles lately. Oh! And I’ve been completely addicted on mint, which is one of the spices related to this chakra (according to this article). So something must be going on here. I haven’t completely figured it out it yet, but it must have something to do with change and personal growth. It must have something to do with decisions to be made.
Solar Plexus Tattoos
I wanted to show you how everything is deeply connected, and how even small things are meaningful if you’re willing to look into them. But now, enough with the woowoo and on to the tattoos! (I’m kidding, no woowoo here. It’s all real!) I’ve found a lot of these tattoos on Tumblr, and some of them don’t have an owner.
