Getting a new tattoo for yourself? Try Sanskrit tattoo designs. Why? Because Sanskrit is a very ancient language. It came from India and spread to the rest of the world, becoming the root of a number of modern languages. Now, Sanskrit itself is a dead language, only used in Hindu religious texts in India. If you think antiques and other ancient stuff are cool and interesting, you will definitely like these designs on your skin.

Here are three reasons why you should get Sanskrit tattoos:
1) They are popular, appearing on a number of Hollywood celebrities. Alyssa Milano has been seen with an Om tattoo on her wrist while Jessica Alba has a lotus blossom. 

Permanent bracelets using Sanskrit characters are increasing in popularity. Some people like to use just the symbol Om around their wrist. Others prefer something that serves as a protective charm, for example "Om Jraam Jreem Jroum Sah Gurave Namaha" for achieving success in all things and general protection in all matters.

2) Sanskrit tattoo designs have a very deep meaning behind them.
For example, Om is said to be the sound which the Hindu God of Creation, Brahma, uttered to create the world.

Lotus flowers, too, are linked to the creation of the world. Because they rise from the water every morning to bloom, then close and sink underwater at night, they symbolize the cycle of creation and destruction of the world. The blooming lotus flower represents Brahma uttering the Om to create the world, while the closing of the flower represents the destruction of the world by Shiva.

This is one reason why the design of a lotus flower with a super-imposed Om symbol is so popular.

3) Sanskrit tattoo designs are beautiful.
The elegant curves of the Sanskrit alphabet, and the way the horizontal bar on top of each alphabet links up to each other makes a very beautiful design. The great age of the Sanskrit language, and its use for recording great myths and legends like the Mahabharata and Baghavadgita, also gives Sanskrit a depth and wealth of symbols to inspire many beautiful tattoos.

Overall, Sanskrit tattoo designs are popular and accessible, have great depth of meaning, and beautiful. Sanskrit tattoos are a great addition to your collection, and also good if you only want one tattoo. This is also good if you are just trying out your first tattoo, and want to get something inconspicuous. Other good designs for first-timers are small Celtic crosses, flowers, roses and hearts.
