Chakra tattoos ideas and designs are well-known in the world of tattoo. And nope, we’re not talking about the chakras seen in animes and anime tattoo designs like Naruto. Rather, we’re talking about the chakras originated from India. These wholesome symbols will surely receive a lot of approval from everyone.


Getting to Know the Chakra

For starters, the Chakra is believed to be the concentrated energy centers of the body. There are seven main chakras that are distributed along the central channel of our body. Our ancestors believe that these chakras provide subtle energy to the functions of our body organs, mind, as well as our intellect. Each of them also has their own representations. Here are the seven main chakras.


This chakra is also referred to as the crown chakra in English. This symbolizes material security, grounding, and is believed to help get rid of any fear. It is located at the top of the seven chakras and this one shows a strong foundation. To identify this symbol, the crown chakra is made up of lotus flower with the most number of petals. And at first glance, you will surely be able to find it as it is the most elaborately detailed symbol among the seven chakras.

The Ādnyā-chakra or the third eye or brow chakra is also a symbol made of a lotus flower. However, unlike the crown chakra, the third eye (a.k.a. the brow) chakra has two petals. People believe that this symbol is responsible for psychic abilities and imagination.

This chakra is also called the throat chakra. This is also a lotus flower but with 16 petals. This chakra symbolizes speech and self-expression. This symbol is placed third from the top.

Fourth from the bottom of the seven chakras is the Anāhat-chakra or the heart chakra in English. And because of that, this chakra naturally relates to compassion and love. It is also associated with harmony, protection, and connection. To differentiate it from the other symbols, take a look at its petals. The heart chakra is also a lotus flower but it has 12 petals.

Also known as the root chakra, this one is associated with instinct, sense of security, and survival. The root chakra is placed at the bottom and to identify this symbol, take a look at its petals as it should have four.

Chakras are often drawn with intricate patterns. Such detail can sometimes make newbies feel daunted – because you know, intricate details also mean more pain during the tattooing process. But if you’re not faint-hearted, we suggest that you ink all of these seven chakras as they don’t just look good but every symbol has its own significance too.

There are certain points that you might want to take note of, though. First is the placing. Note that the crown chakra always takes the top space. Next in line is the third eye, then the throat chakra, 4th is the chakra of heart, 5th is the solar plexus, then the abdomen chakra, and lastly, the root chakra.

Don’t forget that if you want to color your chakra tattoo, these symbols have their own corresponding colors too. Violet is for the crown chakra, indigo is for the third eye, blue is the color of the throat chakra, green is for the chakra of heart, the solar plexus is yellow, orange is for the abdomen chakra, and the root chakra should be red.

Chakra Tattoo with Lotus

The chakra is often depicted by lotus symbols. In fact, to identify the chakras, there is a corresponding number of lotus petals that you should take note of. However, as people get more and more creative with their tattoo, some people just opt for simpler chakra symbols and pair them with intricately-detailed lotus flower tattoo designs instead.

Chakra Tattoos Ideas and Designs Placement

There is actually no written rule as to where you should place chakra tattoos, unlike other religious tattoos like Buddha and cross tattoo designs. Even so, there are certain placements that we recommend as they can highlight chakra tattoos even better. These are:


For the back, many people usually trace their spine with these chakra tattoos.

Like the back area, the chest also provides a nice spot for chakra tattoos.

Because of the different main chakras, you have more symbols to choose from. Plus, you can combine all of them. They aren’t just meaningful but they are also aesthetically pleasing, especially when you pair them with other symbols that are equally beautiful too. It’s one of the wholesome tattoos that are hard to pass on.
