Healed photo of my new rib tattoo. It's of Agyo, the Nio Guardian who is positioned at the gate to Japanese Buddhist temples to protect it from troublesome ghosts, kami, and all kinds of other bad news. Open-mouthed Agyo and his closed-mouth partner Ungyo are said to represent the beginning and ending of the universe (among other things, but I'll let you research that yourself). They originally come from the Hindu tradition (as all Buddhism does, really).
Tattoo done by the amazing Adam Warner at Adrenaline Vancity in Vancouver, BC.
