Looks nice! I'm glad you opted to put the longer earlobes in - that particular cultural thing has always really interested me.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

Good you got it done in America: it has been prohibited by the Thai government in Thailand (on Farang skin, that is, because they don't show proper respect to Buddhist symbols...)

Thanks everyone. I'm very happy with it. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done peeling and scabbing. I want to get text added eventually - "Inquire Within" - to the neckline. I know it's not a specific Buddhist phrase, but it's short and fits the space.

Sounds like a good addition!


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Thanks again, everyone. It's looking great since it finally stopped peeling and scabbing. I can't wait to add the text. I've also been thinking about adding some soft fire effects, a lotus flower and maybe a dhamma wheel somewhere around it. We'll see what the artist can come up with next time I visit him.

Anjali,
